A source with direct knowledge of the situation told SNY.tv on Thursday afternoon that there is a ’90-95 percent chance’ that the 6-foot-8 swingman makes his NBA debut in Brooklyn in 2013-14. “Billy loves him,” the source said. “I would call it a 90-95 percent chance he is with the Nets next season. This time last year, it was probably 50-50.” SNY Nets

The Nets track all his games, blowouts or not, watching video and not just highlight packages. Billy King has personally scouted him and met with him. Still, It's not a guarantee that the Nets roster will include the 6'8" Bojan Bogdanovic next season. He has an "NBA out" this July on this three-year contract that will permit him to sign with Brooklyn. He hasn't said much about this recently but at the beginning of the season, he told a Turkish paper that he'd like to play, but...only if he's going to contribute. Whether I'm with the Nets will depend on how I play and what the results of my club will be. I'm not that crazy about the NBA league, but I'd like to try it. I feel that I can play in the NBA, but I do not want to go sit there and be satisfied with the fact that I was there. NetsDaily

Fenerbahce Ulker of Istanbul has received clearance to sign Ilkan Karaman, the Nets' 2012 second round pick, to a three-year contract, giving the Turkish League team two Nets picks at the forward spots. Bojan Bogdanovic, the Nets 2011 pick, plays small forward while Karaman, 6'10" and 255, plays PF. According to some reports, Karaman will have the right to opt out of his deal next July and sign with the Nets. Others suggest his "out" won't come until 2014. Bogdanovic has an "out" this July. Under terms of the CBA, the Nets can contribute more than a half-million dollars to each of the players' buyout packages. There's no limit on how many international contracts an NBA team can buy out.

The GM of Fenerbahce Ulker in Turkey confirmed to a local sports site that Bojan Bogdanovic, the Nets second round pick in 2011, will be staying with Fener next season.

With just seven players committed to contracts for next season, the Nets have plenty of work to do to round out the roster for their first year in Brooklyn. One player who is unlikely to find his way onto the roster, however, is Bojan Bogdanovic, last year’s second-round pick. Though the Nets are high on his talent, contractual issues likely will keep him playing for Fenerbahce, one of Turkey’s top clubs, for at least another season. “It would be difficult,” Bogdanovic's agent, Marc Cornstein, told The Post yesterday. “I wouldn’t say 100 percent, but in all likelihood he’ll be playing in Turkey next season.” New York Post

Bojan Bogdanovic confirmed he talked with (Nets GM) Billy King, but says going to the NBA is not up to him. "We met one day before traveling with the Croatian team. We had a good conversation and King told me that the Nets were following me and that they would try to make a deal with Fenerbahce." "It's not true that I wanted to leave or quit Fenerbahce, I still have a contract for two years. I would go to the NBA only if they do something with the Nets." Kosarka
