2022 Fantasy Outlook
Bogdanovic has been one of the more consistent scorers in the league lately, putting up at least 17 points per game in four straight years. He ended 2021-22 as the 149th ranked player in eight-category per-game production, adding 4.9 rebounds and 2.6 three-pointers to his 17.7 points per game. After dealing two franchise centerpieces in Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert, the wheels were in motion for the Jazz to continue selling off veteran assets, so Bogdanovic being dealt to the Pistons doesn't come as much of a surprise. Bogdanovic, whose contract expires after this coming season, could push for a starting spot in Detroit. For the Pistons, the decision will likely come down to whether they prioritize immediate results or the development of young players like Saddiq Bey and No. 5 overall pick Jaden Ivey. If the veteran can see 30-plus minutes, his upside is quite high given the lack of other proven options on the team -- Bogdanovic's best fantasy season being 2019-20 when he ranked 78th in 33.1 minutes per game. That said, his long-term season outlook is murky. He'll presumably be the target of trade discussions at the deadline. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

Bojan Bogdanovic, the son of Mario and Vesna, was born in Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina in 1989. Bogdanovic has always been an athlete. He plays soccer and tennis in his spare time and lists his off-court talent as water polo. Still, Bogdanovic only started playing basketball when he was 15. Things took off quickly from there. Bogdanovic began playing professional basketball for his hometown Zrinjski Mostar in 2004. He moved to Real Madrid the next year, staying in Spain's capital until 2009. At Fenerbahce Ulker, Bogdanovic enjoyed the most success. He was there from 2011-2014, earning a Turkish League All-Star selection and a Turkish Cup championship in 2013 before winning the Turkish Supercup and Turkish League Championship the next year. Bogdanovic represents Croatia on the international level and has appeared in 65 games for his country in 11 global tournaments. You can follow him on Twitter and Instagram (@44Bojan). Bogdanovic began his pro basketball career as a teenager, playing with his hometown club of Zrinjski Mostar. He signed a five-year deal with Real Madrid in 2005 and was loaned back to Zrinjski Mostar in that first year. He went on to play at several levels within the Real Madrid organization. After parting ways with Real Madrid after the 2008-09 season, he signed with Cibona Zagreb of the Croatian League. He left that team after the 2010-11 season and landed with Turkey's Fenerbahce Ulker for his first draft-eligible year. Bogdanovic was taken 31st overall by the Miami Heat in 2011, but remained with Fenerbahce for three more seasons before ultimately signing with the Brooklyn Nets in the summer of 2014.

Traded to Pistons
FDetroit Pistons
September 22, 2022
Bogdanovic was traded to the Pistons from the Jazz on Thursday in exchange for Kelly Olynyk and Saben Lee, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
After dealing two franchise centerpieces in Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert, the wheels were in motion for the Jazz to continue selling off veteran assets, so Bogdanovic being on the move doesn't come as much of a surprise. Utah will bring back much-needed help at center in Olynyk, while Lee is a young player who could earn minutes on what will be a rebuilding Jazz team in 2022-23. Bogdanovic, whose contract expires after this coming season, could push for a starting spot in Detroit -- either at shooting guard or small forward. For the Pistons, the decision will likely come down to whether they prioritize immediate results or the development of young players like Saddiq Bey and No. 5 overall pick Jaden Ivey.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Could be on Phoenix's radar
FUtah Jazz
September 20, 2022
Bogdanovic could be a target of the Suns in a trade, Brian Windhorst of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
Phoenix has been engaged in active trade talks over the last week involving the expiring contract of Jae Crowder, among other players, and Bogdanovic is someone who could be a fit coming back the other way. The 33-year-old also has only one year remaining on his current deal and has averaged at least 18 points and two made three-pointers a game in each of the last four seasons.

Last season was up-and-down for Bogdanovic. He had rough stretches, including an 18-game span during which he averaged just 12.8 points on 39.4 percent shooting. But he also had great stretches, like the final 19 games of the season, when he averaged 23.4 points on 48.8 percent shooting. The good couldn't quite outweigh the bad though, as Bogdanovic finished 130th in fantasy on a per-game basis -- quite the dip from his 2019-20 rank of 78 and his 2018-19 rank of 94. The forward saw nearly all of his numbers, including percentages, dip compared to 2019-20, leading to the somewhat drastic fall in rank. Fantasy managers burned by Bogdanovic might not be interested in drafting him in 2021-22, but he still has potential to be a steal if you can get him within the final picks of a standard draft. While the Jazz are relatively deep with capable scorers -- Mike Conley, Donovan Mitchell, Jordan Clarkson, Joe Ingles and new addition Rudy Gay -- Bogdanovic will be a 30-minute staple due to his sharpshooting (40.9 percent from three over the past three seasons) and underrated ability to get to the free-throw line for a shooter (3.9 attempts per game over the past three seasons).
After a wrist injury sidelined him for the playoffs, Bogdanovic is expected to be ready to return for the start of this season for the Jazz following an excellent debut for Utah in 2019-20. The 31-year-old forward averaged career highs with 20.2 points, 4.1 rebounds, 2.1 assists and threes (3.0 per game). The wrist issue marked the first time Bogdanovic has been sidelined for any kind of extended stretch after playing at least 78 games in each of his previous five seasons in the NBA, so it will be worth monitoring to see how he is able to bounce back. Given the injury and the fact that he posted the best numbers of his career in 2019-20, a slight drop in numbers is plausible this season. That said, Bogdanovic is a dead-eye from three-point range, as he's eclipsed 40 percent from deep in each of the past three years (41.4 last season). The hot shooting should continue to be effective on a team with several playmakers -- notably Donovan Mitchell, Mike Conley and Joe Ingles. If Bogdanovic continues to get heavy minutes after averaging a career-high 33.1 last season, he could be poised for additional growth.
Bogdanovic signed a four-year, $73 million deal with the Jazz in the offseason after two highly productive years with Indiana. Last season, the forward averaged career highs in points (18.0), rebounds (4.1) and assists (2.0) across 31.8 minutes, appearing in 81 games. He knocked down 2.0 threes and shot 42.5 percent from deep -- both career highs. He took on a larger role offensively once Victor Oladipo (knee) was out of action, attempting 15.0 field goals per contest. Bogdanovic figures to be a starter with the Jazz immediately, though it's unclear which forward spot he will occupy. Playing on a loaded team with Mike Conley, Joe Ingles, Donavan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert figures to eat into his shot opportunities and offensive production, and it's not unreasonable to expect a decline in points in 2019-20. Conley and Mitchell in particular figure to see high usage, further limiting Bogdanovic. That said, Bogdanovic should still be a steady source of points, threes and shooting percentages.
Joining a Pacers team that lost both Paul George and Darren Collison, Bogdanovic was able to earn a spot in the top unit right away with his new organization, starting all 80 games he played in. The 29-year-old didn't provide much ancillary production with averages of just 3.4 rebounds and 1.5 assists. However, he gave the team a spark offensively on a night-to-night basis and had the ability to spread the floor with a consistent three-point stroke. In 30.8 minutes per game, Bogdanovic finished with a career-high 14.3 points, while hitting 1.9 three-pointers at a 40.2 percent clip. In the offseason, the Pacers extended fairly sizable contracts to both Doug McDermott and Tyreke Evans, both of whom have the ability to play small forward and could cut into Bogdanovic's workload. At this point, Bogdanovic's starting role appears to be safe, though that could change at any point in the season if he falls into a lull. Look for Bogdanovic to remain relevant in deeper leagues due to his spectacular percentages and ability to rack up points and three-pointers. That said, fantasy owners still may want to temper expectations a bit due to the team's offseason signings.
Bogdanovic began the 2016-17 campaign as a member of the Nets, though was dealt to the Wizards at the trade deadline to bolster the team’s bench for the postseason. A 6-foot-8 forward, Bogdanovic’s main draw is his marksmanship, as he drilled 1.8 threes per game at a 36.7 percent clip last season en route to 13.7 points. Though he doesn’t provide much by way of supplementary statistics, posting just 3.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game last year, the 28-year-old’s ability to heat up quickly keeps him Fantasy relevant in a variety of formats. For example, he collected 16 games with at least 20 points and 22 games with at least five rebounds last season. That, of course, comes with poor performances too, making him especially risky for use in DFS. He’ll be joining a new team, the Pacers, for the 2017-18 campaign. While it’s unclear if he’ll be in the starting lineup from day one, the Pacers have subpar depth at the forward slot, making it realistic to expect he’ll garner at least a similar workload to the 25.7 minutes per game he saw last year.
In his second NBA season, Bogdanovic emerged as a reliable source of scoring on the wing, finishing with averages of 11.2 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game in 79 contests. Bogdanovic's numbers were inconsistent to begin the year, but he came into his own after the All-Star break, highlighted by a month of March in which he moved into the starting lineup and averaged 16.9 points and 3.5 rebounds while shooting 49.7 percent from the floor and nearly 41 percent from three-point land. A December injury to Rondae Hollis-Jefferson is what initially opened the door for Bogdanovic, but even with Hollis-Jefferson expected back at full strength this season, Bogdanovic projects to remain in the starting lineup at the other wing spot. Brooklyn brought in Jeremy Lin and Randy Foye as free agents, but Lin will play more at the point guard spot, while the 33-year-old Foye is a backup at this point in his career. Competition for playing time will come primarily in the form of journeyman Sean Kilpatrick and rookie Caris LeVert. As a result, Bogdanovic will have a strong chance to replicate his 2015-16 production.
As a 26-year-old rookie last season, Bogdanovic appeared in 78 contests, averaging 9.0 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 1.2 three-pointers in 24 minutes per game. Bagdanovic is known as a shooter, hitting 45 percent from the field, 36 percent from deep, and 82 percent from the free-throw line. Despite his ability to shoot well, Bogdanovic does little else that shows up in the box score. He's in line to start at shooting guard this season, but that may not make him worth rostering in standard leagues. Through 28 starts last season, Bogdanovic averaged 9.8 points, 3.1 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 1.0 three-pointer, and 0.5 steals in 30 minutes per game. He was given plenty of minutes, but the fact that his value is so directly tied to his efficiency shooting the ball makes him a liability from game to game in fantasy. If he's not hitting his shots, Bogdanovic is going to struggle to provide good fantasy value. Wayne Ellington was signed to a one-year deal in the offseason, and coach Lionel Hollins already worked with Ellington in Memphis, so there's a possibility that familiarity could lead to Bogdanovic getting benched in favor of Hollins going with Ellington. It's a battle worth watching in camp.
The 31st overall pick in the 2011 draft, Bogdanovic has played professionally overseas since 2004. He signed a three-year, $10 million deal with the Nets in July and expects to be a part of the rotation. Just how the 6-8 Croatian fits in remains to be seen, but he'll likely see time at both small forward and shooting guard. He likely won't provide much in terms of rebounds or assists, but he's a career 36-percent three-point shooter who brings a much-needed perimeter presence. Heading into the season, he figures to slot in as the Nets' fourth shooting guard behind Joe Johnson, Alan Anderson, and Jarrett Jack. He'll battle Anderson, who has a similar style of play, for time at both wing spots.
