Forgotten Nets: Bojan Bogdanovic

Bojan Bogdanovic currently resides with the New York Knicks, after being acquired in a mid-season trade from Detroit. Bogdanovic is in the midst of his 10th season in the league, and he has spent almost half of the time in New York.



Bogdanovic got his NBA light when he was drafted by the Miami Heat in 2011, but he never ended up playing a game in Florida – in fact Bogdanovic never played in a regular season game until 2014.


On July 20th, 2014, Bogdanovic signed a three-year/$10M contract with the Brooklyn Nets. The 6-7 Slav battled out for the Nets starter spot during his first two seasons, losing it and regaining it multiple times. Bogdanovic finally was Brooklyn’s starting small forward for 54 out of 55 games during the 2016 season.


On February 22, 2017, Bogdanovic was traded, along with Chris McCullough, to the Washington Wizards in exchange for Andrew Nicholson, Marcus Thornton and a 2017 protected first round draft pick.


Bojan Bogdanovic appeared in 212 games (121 starts) for the Nets, averaging 11.2 PPG off of a  .441 FG% and 3.1 TRB. Overall, Bojan posted all career-low total stats from his 2.5 seasons in Brooklyn compared to what he has combined nearly a decade later.
