Bogdan Bogdanovic said the Kings have “an equal opportunity” along with Memphis, San Antonio, Phoenix, Portland and New Orleans to secure the eighth seed in the Western Conference. “This is pretty much a mental game and we all have to be locked in from the beginning,” Bogdanovic said. “From every single practice, the short period of time is like a tournament system so everyone can win. You can expect everyone to win so that’s what it’s all about.”

Sacramento Kings guard Bogdan Bogdanovic said that playing the rest of the NBA season in July and August reminds him of FIBA’s tournaments. A kind of competition he’s highly familiar with. It looks like, honestly, like some FIBA competition overseas,” Bogdanovic said in an interview with ABC. “It’s pretty much in the same time. August, July. It’s pretty much the same. I have experience with it. You can’t visit the city and you can’t walk around, this is going to be a little bit different with that bubble inside. New experience in life.”

The Kings also released a new PSA, entitled “A Call to Action for White People,” calling for unity and action following the death of George Floyd, who died while being subdued by a Minneapolis police officer. The two-minute video, made in collaboration with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Minnesota Lynx and Sacramento Area Youth Speaks, features players from all three teams, including De’Aaron Fox, Bogdan Bogdanovic, Marvin Bagley III, Karl-Anthony Towns and D’Angelo Russell. Others speakers include Kings general manager Vlade Divac, Kings coach Luke Walton, Timberwolves coach Ryan Saunders, and former Kings players Bobby Jackson and Doug Christie.
Joseph is contributing to two causes, one of which is helping to provide meals for victims of domestic violence, along with their children, and sex trafficking. He is donating 250 meals from the Arden Fair Chick-fil-A in partnership with the nonprofit WEAVE. “After talking to Harrison Barnes, he was telling me what he was trying to do to help, so we were brainstorming, and it just felt like the right thing to do and join my teammates — Bogi (Bogdan Bogdanovic), De’Aaron (Fox), Harrison and Richaun (Holmes) — in trying to donate the meals,” Joseph told The Athletic. “And joining Chick-fil-A to donate to families that have been victimized by domestic violence and sex trafficking of children as well to help out in communities where it’s much needed. To partner with WEAVE and do that is just amazing.”

Re-signing Bogdan Bogdanovic a top priority for Kings

The “young core” is getting older, and the only core player who would be relatively inexperienced going into next season would be Bagley. Do the Kings want another 19- or 20-year-old player in the mix? If he could help quickly, sure. But odds are a lottery pick would not crack the top eight in the rotation. Re-signing restricted free agent Bogdan Bogdanovic will be the top priority. The Kings intend to match any offer sheet from another team, should Bogdanovic sign one. If Bogdanovic is taken care of, look for the Kings to seek out help defensively, especially on the wing. The Kings do not have enough size on the perimeter and could use some players in the 6-foot-8 range who can play either forward spot.

“I feel like they need our help right now,” Bogdanovic told The Athletic. “It doesn’t matter where you donate, where you’re trying to help, I feel like the whole world needs some kind help. So it’s good to be there (to help), especially in this tough time. I’m just following the example of others I saw and I hope I will be an example for someone else.” According to the U.S. Embassy in Serbia, there are 2,200 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 58 deaths as of Monday. Commercial flights in and out of Serbia have been suspended indefinitely.

Bogdanovic plans to continue to monitor the happenings around the world and how he might be able to help. He also believes players can begin to look at their lives from a bigger perspective and what they might want to pursue after basketball. “I feel like everyone should see what is going on and what it might be like when you’re retired,” Bogdanovic said. “That’s what you can learn from this situation, and follow the rules that the government is giving us, the World Health Organization as well, for this pandemic to go away as quickly as it can.”
Bogdan Bogdanovic: Under these circumstances, no we don’t practice. The arenas are shut down. I’m just trying to get better; that’s the only thing I can do. I’m trying to get my body right and try to be prepared for what’s coming next. The hardest part about all this, is that you don’t know what’s going to happen and when this situation will end. You just got to be ready and work on everything in order to stay in shape.
Bogdan Bogdanovic: Right now, I’m more focused on this situation and how to take the positive things out of it. I don’t think about basketball. I’m not worried about that. There are people that are working on that and it’s their job; to plan the schedule when this thing will be over. I think any opinion right now is not important. Whatever happens, all players have to be ready for everything but in this situation, it’s hard to think about basketball. Everyone is more focused on how to take care of their families and get over this virus. The only way to do that is stay at home for 2-3 weeks or a month and wait, in order for the virus to calm down.
“It seems to me that our players should go there: every club, every coach should be proud that they brought up people who play in the NBA. I trained many generations of players, and they all left – from Divac and Petrovic to Bogdanovic and Teodosic. Very happy for them. When the player is ready, let him leave for the NBA. Now very young players are leaving, who are being drafted from schools and universities”, Ivkovic mentions on the Europeans’ NBA invasion in recent years. “It is clear that it is very difficult for European clubs: their youth is leaving, and American players of a lower level are replacing them. The situation is difficult”.
First and foremost, NBC Sports California has learned through a league source that Bogdan Bogdanovic will remain a King through the deadline and enter the summer as a restricted free agent, where the team is likely to match any offer. The Kings saved a minimum of $6.8 million for next season in dealing Dedmon for Jabari Parker and Alex Len. Parker has a player option at $6.5 million and Len is an unrestricted free agent. If Parker opts out of his deal, the Kings’ savings hits $13.3 million for next year.

A source with knowledge of the Kings’ plans said this move was made, in part, with Bogdan Bogdanovic’s future in mind. The 27-year-old wing is a restricted agent this summer, and the Kings could now pay him a starting salary of $20 million or more without having fears of the luxury tax. Barring a can’t-say-no offer before the Thursday deadline or a ridiculous offer sheet this summer, this is a strong indication that Bogdanovic is likely to stay put in Sacramento.
Sam Amick: The Kings are receiving serious interest for small forward Bogdan Bogdanovic, but a source with knowledge of their plans still insists that they’re comfortable keeping him and attempting to re-sign him in restricted free agency summer. As of early Wednesday afternoon, the prospect of a Lakers-Kings deal involving Kyle Kuzma was not being discussed.

Sacramento has matching rights on Bogdanović, but there are questions about the Kings willingness to match a potentially outrageous offer. Given the weakness of the 2020 free agent class, that could be coming. The Lakers have checked in on a potential Kuzma-centered swap, per source, and teams will probe Sacramento over the next two days to see if a deal is there.
“But, you have to be ready for everything, especially after I saw in my first year, what was going on,” Bogdanovic said. “First year, when you come through it [the deadline], you always know that date is coming and it could be you. You just have to be ready and work on your game and be mentally prepared – for everything.” When asked if he thinks he’ll still be a King after Thursday’s deadline, Bogdanovic answered, “Yeah.”
Storyline: Bogdan Bogdanovic Trade?
The Bogdan Bogdanovic situation could go to the wire. The Lakers and Hornets are among teams who have expressed interest, sources say. The Sixers seem like a natural fit, but the two teams do not appear to have had any substantive talks. It’s hard to see those talks progressing past the phrase “Matisse Thybulle” — Philly isn’t including him in any deal at this level, and the Zhaire Smith/Mike Scott/pick platter might not pique Sacto’s interest. The Kings have matching rights on Bogdanovic this summer.
