In addition to leading Fenerbahce in games started (25), he was second in minutes (27:50), assists (2.7 apg.) and three-pointers made (46) and third in free-throw shooting (78.2%) and defensive rebounding (2.4 drpg.). He was also among the top three in scoring (10.7 ppg., third), three-pointers made (second), assists (first), steals (0.8 spg., second) and fouls drawn (2.5, third) among all Rising Star Trophy-eligible players this season.

The Phoenix Suns drafted Bogdanovic 27th overall in the 2014 NBA Draft and own his draft rights.
