July 8, 2019, 4:40 pmBojan BogdanovicSF, Utah Jazz
The Jazz officially announced the signing of Bojan Bogdanovic.
Bogdanovic inked a four-year, $73 million deal. He gives Utah an elite floor-spacer and a capable perimeter defender that can switch across wing positions. Bogdanovic's ability to knock down the three ball efficiently will give them a new dynamic after they occasionally suffered for spacing in recent years. He's likely going to get less usage with the Jazz than he did in Indiana last season, but top-100 numbers are still possible given his stat set. There's a late-round floor here.

The Jazz and Bojan Bogdanovic have agreed to terms on a four-year, $73 million contract.
Bogdanovic is a great get for Utah, as it gives them another capable perimeter defender and a true knock-down shooter. Adding him to the mix will help erase some spacing issues and should also help the team's playmaking efforts with his ability to move off the ball. Bogdanovic shot a blistering .497 from the field last season on his way to a career-high 18 points per game, and he should be a steady late-round fantasy player with the Jazz, even accounting for a decrease in usage.

Tony Jones of The Athletic is reporting that the Jazz will meet with Bojan Bogdanovic on Sunday afternoon.
The Jazz have emerged as a major player in the Bogdanovic market, and they have since shelved their scheduled meeting with Bobby Portis until they get some resolution with Bogdanovic. Bogdanovic is coming off a career year where he shot 49.7 percent from the field and 42.5 percent from deep, and his addition would make the Jazz a much more dangerous team on either end of the floor.

The Jazz are a "significant threat" to sign Bojan Bogdanovic and could deliver him a competitive offer on Sunday, according to Tony Jones and Shams Charania of The Athletic.
Jones' reporting has pointed to Bogdanovic becoming Utah's top free agent target, and he'd give them a knock-down shooter who can hang with most players on the perimeter. Bogdanovic is also thought to be a priority for the Pacers, but Utah may be able to out-bid the incumbent for Bogie's services. The Jazz could certainly use another shooter and Bogdanovic would be a very nice fit should they seal the deal.

According to Tony Jones, the Jazz have a significant interest in signing Bojan Bogdanovic in free agency.
Bogdanovic makes sense as an FA signing for the Jazz, given that they traded away some of their best 3-point shooters (Jae Crowder, Kyle Korver) when they acquired Mike Conley. Bogdanovic should get a solid amount of usage as their main kick-out target, should both parties come to an agreement.

Retaining Bojan Bogdanovic will be the Pacers' top priority in free agency.
As it should. Bogdanovic had a career year and grew as both a scorer and defender while scoring extremely efficiently at .497 from the field good for a new personal best. He wound up with career-highs in points, rebounds, assists, steals and 3-pointers as well. The Spurs are rumored to be in the mix and there should be no shortage of teams in pursuit of Bogdanovic. Expect him to get a nice contract and hold late-middle round fantasy value regardless of destination.

The Spurs are targeting Bojan Bogdanovic in free agency according to ESPN's Bobby Marks.
The Spurs would need to move players around in order to make a deal with Bodanovic and Marks' underlying suspicion is that DeMar DeRozan could be the guy to go in order to do so. The 30 year old forward is coming off of a huge year in which he put up career highs in points, rebounds, assists, steals, 3-pointers and FG percentage, making him one of the biggest steals of the fantasy season. In the hypothetical scenario presented by Marks, Bogdanovic would likely see a large role as a leading man in San Antonio, making them an interesting team to keep an eye on in regards to his free agency.

Bojan Bogdanovic scored 22 points with eight rebounds, three assists and a 3-pointer as the Pacers season ended with a loss to the Celtics on Sunday.
Bogdanovic did a fantastic job filling a massive void left by Victor Oladipo in the second half of the season and in the playoffs, but ultimately it wasn't enough. Indiana just could not hit shots when they needed to during this series, and thus, only lasted four games. Bogdanovic is an unrestricted free agent but if he returns to the Pacers he'll have a big role until Oladipo is ready to return.

Bojan Bogdanovic notched 15 points with five rebounds, four assists, two threes and two steals as the Pacers fell to the Celtics 96-104 on Friday night.
Bogdanovic led Indiana in minutes (40) and shot attempts (17) but his well-rounded line wasn't enough to defend his home court. The Croatian big man is doing everything he can to fill the void left by Victor Oladipo, but Indiana will need more from the rest of the team if they are to avoid the sweep.

Bojan Bogdanovic let it fly in Wednesday's close loss against the Celtics, scoring 23 points (9-of-21-shooting) to go with eight rebounds, three assists, four steals and four 3-pointers.
Bogdanovic put on his best Kobe impression down the stretch, taking all but one the Pacers' shots in the final three minutes of this game, while nearly equaling his season high for FG's attempted. It's clear that Bogey is the only guy the Pacers can turn to down the stretch, and unless others are able to produce more on the offensive end, this could be a short series for Indiana.

Bojan Bogdanovic was held to 12 points on 4-for-11 shooting in Sunday's Game 1 loss to the Celtics.
Bogdanovic was bottled up in this one, much like the rest of the Pacers. He was 0-for-3 from deep and only contributed two boards, one assist and two steals outside of his 12 points. The Pacers offense was exposed in this one and now face an uphill battle the rest of the series.

Bojan Bogdanovic (rest) will not play in Wednesday's season finale.
This will be Bogdanovic's first absence of the year. He turned in a wonderful campaign that featured career-highs in points (18.0), rebounds (4.1), assists (1.9), steals (0.9), 3-pointers (2.0) and field goal percentage (.497). Last season Bogdanovic put in work to improve his defensive game, and this year it manifested in added steals. He's no longer a liability on that end of the court and is more than a simple points and threes guy. Bogey chips in a bit of everything and on excellent efficiency for a perimeter player to boot. His career year resulted in top-95 per-game value and top-60 total value. Bogdanovic qualifies as one of the steals of draft season.

Bojan Bogdanovic scored four points on 1-for-8 shooting in a rare off night as the Pacers lost on Friday night.
The four points were the lowest point total since the second game of the season for Bogdanovic, who shot terribly from the field. Nothing went right for the Pacers tonight so owners shouldn't overreact to what was an outlier of a night for the Pacers forward.
The Pacers didn't catch the same attention that the other top teams in the East did, but had the looks of a team that could make some noise before an unfortunate injury to their star.…
