In a recent mailbag, Jason Anderson of the Sacramento Bee said that the Kings are willing to sign Bogdan Bogdanovic to a max-length contract extension, but Bogdanovic may head to free agency in hopes of a bigger payday.
Anderson threw out $12.85 million as the salary at which the Kings would happily sign the dotted line, but Bogdanovic is coming off an excellent performance in the World Cup and would offer one of the best blends of current production and upside in what's set to be a weak free agent class. Unfortunately for Bogdanovic, he could be facing a playing time crunch this year. The Kings have locked in their backcourt of the future and went out of the way to re-sign Harrison Barnes and add Trevor Ariza at the small forward spot. It will be tough for BB8 to repeat last season's 27.8 mpg so he's shaping up as a late-round selection in the 14-16-team range. There is upside for more, at least.
