Bojan Bogdanovic seeking contract extension with Pistons

- by

Crowder does not appear to be alone in wanting an extension. New Pistons sharpshooter Bojan Bogdanović, 33, is said to be seeking a new multiyear contract, which league sources say dissuaded some interested teams from pushing harder to try to acquire him from the Jazz as Bogdanović plays out this season on an expiring $19.3 million deal.

More on this storyline

The 33-year-old forward brings eight years of NBA experience and several years of professional overseas basketball experience to the Pistons. Bogdanovic said he knew he’d be dealt by Utah, which blew up its entire roster during the offseason in order to rebuild, but he wasn’t sure where he’d land. “I kind of knew that I was going to be traded. I was just waiting to see where I’m gonna end up,” Bogdanovic said Tuesday after the Pistons’ first practice of training camp. “Super excited to be here with this young group of guys and a coach that is really experienced. Everything is great so far.” -via Detroit News / September 28, 2022
“I gotta do what I do,” Bogdanovic said. “I’m going to be in every single game. I imagine I’m the oldest guy in here, I think, in the room. I have to be more present vocally. I gotta talk to young guys and try to direct them in the right direction, but my mindset is going to be the same. I want to be in every single game that I play.” As the oldest player on the Pistons’ roster — and with valuable playoff experience — Bogdanovic will provide an added boost in 3-point shooting and create space for Cunningham and Ivey to operate inside the arc. His willingness to make it back to the United States in time for the first day of training camp is also notable. “That says a lot about how he feels about Detroit,” Casey said. -via Detroit News / September 28, 2022
