Jason Jones of The Athletic is reporting that re-signing Bogdan Bogdanovic will be the Kings' top priority in free agency.
It's quite the turnaround considering the trade rumors that swirled earlier in the season, but the Kings were unlikely to recoup equal value for the 27-year-old guard given his somewhat limited role in Sacramento. The Kings can match any offer sheet that Bogdanovic signs, and that's a distinct possibility given his own reported desires for a larger role in general, but whether another team crosses a financial line that Sacramento can't stomach remains to be seen. A change of scenery would likely be a big boost to BB8's fantasy potential, as he's more of an end-of-bench player when the Kings are fully healthy and a must-add guy whenever De'Aaron Fox or Buddy Hield misses time.

Bogdan Bogdanovic caught fire on Saturday, shooting 10-of-15 from the field and 7-of-11 from deep on his way to scoring 27 points with five rebounds, eight assists, one steal and one block in a 123-111 win vs. the Blazers.
Bogdanovic caught fire and led the Kings to an important win in the playoff race. He's been a top-70 player over the past month, averaging 14.5 points, 2.6 threes and 1.4 steals per game. Those are his best categories and he can occasionally add some rebounds and assists. He will cool off and owners should expect top-125 value moving forward despite his recent hot streak.

Bogdan Bogdanovic helped the Kings hold off the Wizards for a 133-126 win with 21 points on 6-of-12 shooting, four 3-pointers, one rebound, four assists, two steals and a block in 30 minutes in a win over the Wizards on Tuesday.
Bogdanovic has been a little frustrating to roster recently, coming off of a five-point game followed by a zero-rebound, zero-assist night, but he's still a decent option in most leagues due to his threes, and recently, his steals.

Bogdan Bogdanovic went 1-for-7 from the field on Friday night, scoring five points to go with eight rebounds, four assists, a steal and a 3-pointer.
Bogdanovic has been a top-125 value over the last month, and while his elevation to the starting role has given him a modest bump it's certainly not anything game-changing. He's probably worth rostering in standard formats but he's not a must-own if there's a serious name sitting on your waiver wire. There's late-middle round upside here, and as we approach silly season you might find someone capable of more emerging on the wire.

Bogdan Bogdanovic started on Thursday and scored 11 points on 4-of-14 shooting to go with four rebounds, four assists, a steal and two triples.
Bogdanovic couldn't do much with De'Aaron Fox out with an abdominal injury. He hasn't been playing near his standards, but given the situation in Sacramento, he should pick things up soon.

Bogdan Bogdanovic was held in check by the Mavs on Wednesday and was limited to six points on awful 2-of-11 shooting with four rebounds, two assists, one 3-pointer in 23 minutes.
BogBog is playing with top-150 value over the last month, so this hiccup shouldn't frustrate owners too much. He should be able to crack the top-80 when he's playing back in flow.

Bogdan Bogdanovic scored 16 points on 6-of-14 shooting while adding five rebounds, two assists, a block and two triples on Monday.
Bogdanovic was awful from distance tonight (2-for-9 3PT), but he's still going to be a standard-league value with Marvin Bagley (foot) dealing with an injury that might sideline him for the season.

Bogdan Bogdanovic was cooking on Friday night, scoring 23 points (8-for-16 shooting), with six triples, four rebounds, three steals, two assists and a block.
Bogdanovic played 36 minutes and posted a team-high plus-9, as he seems to be settling into a groove that should have him in the top-100 down the stretch if he can stay healthy and in the rotation.

According to James Ham, the Kings are not inclined to move Bogdan Bogdanovic (RFA) but will match any offers he receives over the summer.
This makes sense from a stability point of view for the Kings. Despite his ups and downs, Bogdanovic has been able to float with solid value. In fact, he's been trending up lately, posting top-85 value in 9-cat over the last week.

Following the team’s victory over the Wolves on Monday, Bogdan Bogdanovic told NBC Sports California that his preference is to remain in Sacramento, the only team he has known in the NBA.
In an attempt to shake things up, coach Luke Walton recently put Bogdanovic into the starting lineup and moved Buddy Hield to the second unit. The Kings have responded with a 4-2 stretch that could change the team’s thinking at the deadline. If they keep Bogdanovic past Thursday, the team will have the final 32 games to evaluate the situation and make a decision on his long-term fit with the team before he becomes a restricted free agent this summer. Sacramento is also reportedly exploring the trade market, so his move to the lineup could also be an attempt to showcase him and increase his value. He should be owned in all leagues right now until the trade deadline clears things up.

Bogdan Bogdanovic scored 23 points on 5-of-7 shooting with two rebounds, three assists and four 3-pointers on Monday.
Bogdanovic was hot from deep, connecting on 4-of-5 from beyond the arc, but again, didn't do much outside of that. His value is tethered to hot shooting and he's just not consistent enough as a fantasy asset on the Kings.

The Lakers and Hornets are among the teams that have expressed interest in Bogdan Bogdanovic, per Zach Lowe.
Bogdanovic hasn't been thrilled with his role in Sacramento, and even though he's recently been promoted to the starting lineup it's likely that he's still behind Buddy Hield in the team's long-term plans. Bogdanovic is expected to seek a starting gig in restricted free agency and the Kings may not feel comfortable matching some of the offers that come his way. A trade should net the Kings something worthwhile given BB8's skills, and it would also likely put Bogdanovic on the standard-league radar to close the year. Keep a close eye on this one.

Buddy Hield filled the box score with 22 points, four rebounds, two assists, a steal, a block and six 3-pointers on Saturday night.
Hield played 30 minutes off the bench, more than starter Bogdan Bogdanovic's 28. BB8 also had the worse statistical game with eight points, two rebounds, a steal and a 3-pointer. The bench role has put a lid on Hield's ceiling but he's still getting plenty of shots and it's not like he's struggling to produce. It might not feel like it but Hield has been a top-70 guy this year.

Bogdan Bogdanovic scored 15 points on 5-of-6 shooting with six rebounds, three dimes and four triples on Thursday.
Bogdanovic's line was almost entirely supported by his triples and the lack of dimes and swipes make him an unattractive add in fantasy formats. Cory Joseph (33 minutes, 16 points, two rebounds, seven dimes, one steal, one block and four triples) played way above his usual level tonight and was a big reason why the Kings jumped out to such a big lead against the Clippers tonight.

Bogdan Bogdanovic drew the start in Wednesday's 120-100 loss to the Thunder, generating 23 points (10-19 FG, 3-10 3PT), five rebounds, two assists and a steal.
Bogdanovic will hold some decent value in standard leagues as long as he gets the nod as a starter. He paced the Kings in scoring while his back court mate, De'Aaron Fox finished with 19 points to go along with one board, five assists and two steals.
