The Brooklyn Nets and Bojan Bogdanovic have agreed upon a three-year deal for the tax-payer’s mini-Midlevel Exception, or $10.3 million, according to Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPNNewYork.com. The Nets initially acquired the rights to Bogdanovic in the 2011 NBA draft.
Bogdanovic has played the last few years in Turkey for Fenerbahce Ulker where the 25-year-old averaged 14.8 points and 2.4 rebounds last season. He nearly signed with the Nets a year ago, but ran into problems over a $2 million buyout of his European contract. This year he was a free agent and had no such problems.
Money opened up for Bogdanovic, who was born in the same town in Bosnia of his now teammate Mirza Teletovic, after Shaun Livingston left to sign with the Warriors. He’ll likely be playing the three, as opposed to the one or two position that Livingston played last year.
The signing won’t be official until the NBA’s free agency moratorium ends on July 10th.
