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.

On development, King reiterated the Nets intention to sign Bojan Bogdanovic, saying he is the kind of player the Nets will need to bring in, with their tight salary cap. "Bojan is someone who's had big games. He can shoot the three, has good size, is very physical so the goal is to get him over here this year," King said. "He has an NBA buyout so the object is to exercise it and give him the money and get him to come over. I think he wants to come over." He added nothing can happen until free agency begins in July.
