In the last two games, Bogdanovic has raised his three point shooting in the Euroleague Round of 16 from five to 11 percent , this after shooting 40 percent in the 10-game regular season. The 6'8" swingman recently hired Arn Tellem, the NBA's top agent, to rep him in dealings with NBA teams. He already has a European agent. The news has to be considered good news for the Nets who are likely to be locked in a tough competition for his services this summer. Fener wants to re-sign him and there's word Spanish power house F.C. Barcelona wants him as well. NetsDaily

Despite Bogdanović's popularity, the Nets are not in any rush to deal him. The league source, who has knowledge of the team's thinking, says the Nets are waiting for the "right deal" to come along. They previously discussed a trade involving the rights to Bogdanović and Toronto Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry, but Lowry would only be a backup on the Nets, who already give significant playing time to point guards Deron Williams and Shaun Livingston.

Assistant General Manager of the Miami Heat, Adam Simon, was in attendance following the draft-eligible prospect. According to Draft specialist Jonathan Givony, founder of DraftExpress.com, Bogdanovic is number one in the class of 1992 International born prospects, and is projected as a first-round pick in the upcoming draft. "I had no idea I was being followed against Maccabi, I was focused on the game," Bogdanovic told Eurobasket during a post-game interview. Establishing himself as one of the top rising Euro-talents, Bogdanovic expressed his opinion on wanting to play in the NBA next season and whether or not he's ready to cross the pond. "It's a dream to play in the NBA, but right now I'm focused on Partizan. I believe I'm ready for the NBA and I will try my best if I receive a contract. For me personally, the Euroleague is much better than going to tryout in the NBA Summer League, but if a team would sign me and choose to loan me to a Euroleague team for one season, I'd be willing to do that."

Midway through the 26-minute interview, Bogdanovic was asked specifically about his status with the Nets. He recounted last summer's flirtation, but didn't mention that Fener had forced his hand by declining tot reduce his NBA buyout. "I was drafted three years ago, before I signed a contract with Fenerbache. I was drafted by the Brooklyn Nets, but at that time, (Neven Spahija, his Croatian national team coach then Fener's coach) called me to stay in Europe for a couple of years or more. NetsDaily

"And this summer, we talk again with the Brooklyn Nets but at that time (current Fener coach Zeljko) Obradovic signed here and I saw many, many [messages of ]support from fans and they sent me a lot of messages and that was along with Obradovic the reason I stay with Fenerbahe. "This is my last year in Fenerbahce last year of the contradt, but in the summer for sure, I will talk to Fenerbahce. My wish is to win some trophies here in Fenerbahce. Especially this year because we have great coach and too many talents and too many good players and If everything goes good, I don't have a reason, maybe, to change teams because I am feeling I am very happy here in Istanbul."

Howard Beck: Per plugged-in source: Nets have indicated "zero intention" to give up Bogdanovic or 1st-rd pick in any deal for Lowry. That being the case, it's hard to see Nets getting Lowry. Raptors insisting on young player and 1st-rd pick. I'm not surprised at Nets' reluctance. They love Bogdanovic. And they've already given up a boatload of 1st-rd picks. Twitter
