The Phoenix Suns used the No. 27 pick in the 2014 NBA draft to select Serbian shooting guard Bogdan Bogdanovic. As part of a trade during the 2016 NBA draft, the Suns sent the rights to Bogdanovic, along with the Nos. 13 and 28 picks, to the Sacramento Kings for the No. 8 selection.
During a Q&A with The Sacramento Bee, Kings vice president of basketball operations and general manager Vlade Divac stated that he is planning to bring over Bogdanovic next season.
"The good thing about our situation now is that we have some very nice assets, a few more shooting guards, and time to take a look at Willie Cauley-Stein, Skal Labissiere and Malachi Richardson when he gets healthy, and Georgios Papagiannis," said Divac. "Ty Lawson has been very good for us, and Darren Collison is playing well, and he will be a free agent. Kosta Koufos has been good. We have Bogdan Bogdanovic coming over next season as another asset."
Bogdanovic has played in Turkey with Fenerbahce since 2014 and this season is averaging 13.2 points, 3.1 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game in all competitions.
