Bogdan Bogdanovic is reportedly dissatisfied with his long-term backup role in Sacramento.
This explains why Bogdanovic rejected the Kings' offer to extend him at the maximum $51.4 million over four years. Bogdanovic is destined for restricted free agency next offseason, where he'll find no shortage of suitors in a weak free agent class. The Kings have stubbornly refused to start Bogdanovic next to their young core of De'Aaron Fox, Buddy Hield and Marving Bagley, opting to play Harrison Barnes out of position as the starting small forward. Maybe Bogdanovic gets his wish in the short-term given that Bagley will mist 4-6 weeks with a broken thumb, but there's some acrimony brewing in Sacramento yet again.
