HoopsHype Bojan Bogdanovic rumors

July 10, 2013 Updates

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

The Nets are not planning to add a 15th player to their roster. Once they sign Andray Blatche, Shaun Livingston and Bojan Bogdanovic and then complete their blockbuster with Boston, they will have 14 players ... barring a trade. NetsDaily

In talking with a Croatian radio station Saturday, Bojan Bogdanovic says chances of him joining the Nets next season are "a little more" than 50-50 and no deal has been finalized, saying talks are "in the early stages." Moreover, he says Fenerbahce, his Turkish club, would like him to return. Adrian Wojnarowski and Nets beat writers reported Friday night that the Nets and Bogdanovic had reached an agreement paying him $2.5 million next year, the first of the three-year deal. No deal can be finalized until July 10 and the Nets were confident Friday that it will be. NetsDaily

"It is not true that I signed a three-year deal with the Nets. Chances that I will play for Brooklyn next year are about 50 percent, maybe little more, but the only truth is that negotiations are ongoing and that before Monday or Tuesday I will not know anything more. I hope the agreement will be made before the Croatian National Team training camp begins." The first meeting of the national team is Monday. Bogdanovic also said Fenerbahce's new coach, the Phil Jackson of Europe, has reached out to him, asking that he stay. "I spoke to Zeljko Obradovic and he told me he would like me to stay in Fenerbahce, and I would like to work with the winningest European coach. However, until negotiations with the Nets end, I will not know much more," he told Radio Dobre Vibracije. NetsDaily

Bogdanovic’s agent, Marc Cornstein, said on Monday that his client shares the goal of coming over to the NBA with King. “It’s still the case that he would like to come to the NBA, and the Nets would like to bring him over,” he said. “It is a more fluid situation now, though.” Cornstein would not comment on the specifics of Bogdanovic’s buyout, but NBA teams are, by rule, allowed to use $575,000 toward an international buyout, and that money is not charged against the salary cap. “What I would say about (the buyout) is that it is manageable to where he could come over this year if that’s how things work out,” Cornstein said.
