NBA Free Agency 2013: Brooklyn Nets, Bojan Bogdanovic Agree to Three-Year Deal


NBA free agency continues to move right along on Friday. In non-Dwight Howard related news, the Brooklyn Nets have agreed to three-year deal with forward Bojan Bogdanovic.

Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski (at this point, who else would you expect to be breaking free agency news at this rapid rate) reported the deal on Friday night.

The Brooklyn Nets have reached agreement to sign 2011 draft pick Bojan Bogdanovic to a three-year contract, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

The contract will have a player option in the third season, sources said.

Wojnarowski also says that he will be Paul Pierce’s backup. He will make his debut in the NBA after playing internationally in the first two seasons.

Bogdanovic was originally drafted by the Miami Heat, then was traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves for Norris Cole before heading to the then-New Jersey Nets.

The forward has played for five seasons in the Euroleague. Last season with Fenerbahce Ulker Istanbul, Bogdanovic averaged 15.9 points per game, 45 total rebounds, 11 total blocks, and had an 83.9 free throw percentage in the 21 games he played in.
