2019 Fantasy Outlook
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.

Personal Bio

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).

College/International Summary

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.

Needs season-ending wrist surgery

May 18, 2020
Bogdanovic is scheduled to undergo season-ending surgery on his right wrist in the near future Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
Bogdanovic wasn't known to have been dealing with any injury prior to the NBA suspending its season in mid-March, but the forward has apparently been dealing with pain and discomfort in his right wrist since January, and it's only worsened in the months that have passed. The implication, of course, is that Bogdanovic wouldn't be available for the Jazz if the 2019-20 season resumes later this year in some form, though Utah expects him to be ready for the start of the 2020-21 campaign. In his first season with the Jazz, Bogdanovic appeared in 63 of the team's 64 games, averaging a career-best 20.2 points to go with 4.1 rebounds, 3.0 treys and 2.1 assists.

Past Season Summaries
2018

With Victor Oladipo going down to a season-ending knee injury in January, Bogdanovic emerged as the go-to player in Indiana. After averaging 14.3 points per game in 2017-2018, the 30-year-old jumped to 18.0 points per game in 2018-2019, which was tops on the team outside of Oladipo (who averaged 18.8 points per game in his 36 games of action). Bogdanovic did it by attempting nearly three more shots per game while increasing his field goal efficiency, finishing with a career-best 49.7 percent mark. He also shot a career-best 42.5 percent from three-point range on 4.8 attempts per game. His best scoring game came on Feb. 28, when he poured in 37 points against the Timberwolves on 13-of-22 shooting. It marked the second-highest scoring game of his career. Bogdanovic made moderate contributions outside of scoring, finishing with a career-high 4.1 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game. Defensively, he chipped in 0.9 steals per game. Bogdanovic tried to do even more on the offensive end in the playoffs, getting up to 15.8 shots per game after attempting 13.0 per game in the regular season. During the postseason, he averaged 18.0 points, 5.8 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 2.0 steals across 37.0 minutes. The Pacers were swept in the first round by the Celtics.

2017

In his first season with the Indiana Pacers, Bogdanovic started 80 games. For the 2017-2018 season, he average a career-high 14.3 points per game. On Feb. 5 Bogdanovic scored a season-high 29 points against the Washington Wizards. He later matched that career high as part of a 92-89 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on March 5. Early in the season on Nov. 10, Bogdanovic notched his season high for made three-point field goals with six in a win over the Chicago Bulls. Nine days later, he made another six threes against the Miami Heat. Bogdanovic once against matched his season high on April 5 against the Golden State Warriors. He started a career-high seven playoff games. In a Game 3 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers, Bogdanovic scored a playoff career-high 30 points. He finished 14th in the league in free throw percentage with .868.

2016

Bogdanovic started his third year in the NBA with the Nets and played in 55 of the team's first 56 games. He broke out early -- scoring 21 points and grabbing five rebounds on Opening Night against the Celtics. He'd continue his hot play, bagging 26 points and eight rebounds in the season's third game against Milwaukee. The rebuilding Nets later traded Bogdanovic, along with Chris McCullough, to the Wizards in exchange for a package of players and a first-round pick. Bogdanovic quickly set about building a strong first impression. In just his fourth game as a Wizard, Bogdanovic scored 27 points as Washington beat Toronto. On March 7, he scored 29 points and grabbed nine rebounds in a win over Phoenix, matching his season high in points. The Jazz qualified for the playoffs but fell to Boston in Round 2, and Bogdanovic suited up in all 13 contests. He averaged 8.8 points and 4.2 boards over 20.3 minutes in the postseason, with his most notable performance coming in Game 3 against the Celtics (19 points, 10 rebounds).

2015

Bogdanovic upped his game in his second season, improving in nearly every statistical category. He hit his stride early, culminating in a 19-point, two-rebound effort against Memphis in just his third game of the season. Bogdanovic would reach new heights just two weeks later against Houston, scoring 22 points and grabbing nine rebounds as the Nets took down the Rockets by eight, their first win of the season. On Jan. 4 against Boston, Bogdanovic recorded his first career double-double, scoring 12 points and accounting for 12 rebounds in a close loss against the Celtics. On Feb. 5 against Sacramento, his 23 points helped the Nets to a close win at the Barclays Center. Bogdanovic closed out the year with his best career performance to date, a 29-point, six-rebound display of dominance against a DeMar DeRozan-led Toronto Raptors.

2014

After leaving Turkish professional basketball behind for greener pastures in 2014, Bogdanovic immediately assumed an important role in the Brooklyn Nets' offense. He made 28 starts as a rookie, appeared in 78 games and averaged 9.0 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.2 three-pointers per game. Bogdanovic made his NBA debut on opening night, Oct. 29, and scored seven points while dishing two assists in a loss at Boston. He had his first 20-plus point game on Nov. 9, scoring 22 points and adding six rebounds in an eight-point win over Orlando. Four games later, he put up another 22-point effort against the Heat. His best game of the year came in the final game of the regular season -- a 28-point, three-rebound effort which helped the Nets take down the Magic by 13. Bogdanovic appeared in all six playoff games, with five starts, for the Nets in their opening-round series against the Hawks. He posted per-game averages of 10.3 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.7 assists before the Nets bowed out to the Hawks in six games.

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.
