So it's no surprise (Bogdanovic) was being cagey when approached by a leading Spanish sports site. As he has told other reporters since opting out of joining the Nets, he wants to play in the NBA but doesn't know when. He was also non-committal about his contract with Fener. "I want to play in the NBA and I will, I have the certainty of it: but still do not know when," he told as.com. "Fener has been very good to me and I can sign a new contract, although perhaps with a buyout clause to go to the NBA. I could leave at the end of the current contract, but I can also wait (more) years." NetsDaily

Teletovic, who is 28 years old, carries a heavy load for Bosnia and Herzegovina, and his shooting percentage—38.6 from the field—reflects that. But he is second in the tournament with 21.0 points per game, and averages 7.8 rebounds. Bogdanovic, who is 24 and had hoped to sign this summer, is ninth in scoring (16.7 points) in the European tournament. Both players are in high demand around the league. But, as one general manager told SN, “The Nets don’t seem to have any interest in getting rid of either guy. Plenty of teams have asked, but they are not moving them, not right now.” Sporting News

In an interview at the opening of the Team Croatia training camp this week, Bojan Bogdanovic said that although he will play with Fenerbahce in the Euroleague this season, he still intends to play for the Nets ... although he didn't say when. Speaking about Fenerbahce, Bogdanovic said, "This club is excellent with great expectations, but certainly you will see me one day in Brooklyn.'' NetsDaily

Bogdanovic, who will turn 25 next April, is still coveted by the Nets. Earlier this month, he couldn't get Fener to reduce his 1.5 million euro ($2 million) buyout and turned down the mini-MLE from the Nets. Billy King then moved on to Plan B, which turned into Andrei Kirilenko and Alan Anderson, both of whom signed two-year deals with player options for 2014-15. "I might have become a hot commodity (in Croatia)," said Bogdanovic, who would have been the first Croatian in the NBA in three years. "But now I decided to stay at Fenerbahce in Istanbul and I'm glad that this story finally ended." NetsDaily

It doesn't really matter much anymore, but Bojan Bogdanovic wants everyone to know that his decision not to join the Nets wasn't really about money, but instead his desire to play for the best coach in Europe, Zeljko Obradovic, and "win something before I leave Europe." Obradovic was recently hired by Fenerbahce, Bogdanovic's Turkish team. He actively recruited Bogdanovic to stay in Turkey. NetsDaily

Basketball writer Igor Marinovic, like Bogdanovic, is from Mostar, Bosnia. He tweeted out a series of 140-character messages Monday explaining Bogdanovic's position. Bogdanovic added that he expects to play in the NBA "in one or two years." He and Fener are believed to be in discussions about a contract extension. NetsDaily

So after weeks of believing they could get a buyout done with Bojan Bogdanovic's Turkish club, the Nets on Wednesday decided to "move on" without him and will pursue "Plan B," reports a league source. The decision is final and definite, said the source. The Nets came not long after the Nets expressed concern about finalizing the buyout. Billy King admitted to beat writers some "concern" they can get a deal done that would bring the 6'8" Croatian to Brooklyn. Still, King said he’s “pretty confident” the buyout will happen. Not long afterwards, the Nets decided to pull the plug and move on. King did tell the beat writers that there's one player worth the mini-MLE if the Bogdanovic deal fell through. NetsDaily
