Bo McCalebb Close To Deal With European Team

European free-agent point guard Bo McCalebb is nearing agreement on a contract with a team in Europe, meaning no move to the NBA for now, sources told RealGM.

In an accomplished professional career overseas, McCalebb transformed himself into a star and an NBA-caliber player.

Several NBA teams maintained conversations with McCalebb throughout the offseason, and the 29-year-old had been more inclined than ever to enter the league, but none progressed to deliver a contract.

McCalebb averaged 11 points, three assists and 1.3 steals per game while shooting 56.9 percent from the field for Fenerbahçe Ülker last season – his second year with the Turkish club. He became a free agent shortly before the start of the NBA's July free agency.

Partizan in Serbia has been widely speculated internationally as a possibility for McCalebb, but the club is out of the mix as the 6-foot product finalizes his decision, sources said.

Bogdan Bogdanovic Wins Euroleague Rising Star Trophy

Partizan's 21-year-old guard Bogdan Bogdanovic has won the Rising Star Trophy as the best young performer of the 2013-14 Euroleague season.

Bogdanovic excelled in his first season as a Euroleague starter, ranking among the league leaders in scoring and steals while also leading his team in assists and three-pointers made.

The Rising Star Trophy recognizes the best Euroleague player each season who was under the age of 22 on July 1 of the summer before the season started. After becoming a full-time contributor with Partizan a year ago, Bogdanovic made the transformation into a true Euroleague star already in his second full season in the competition.

Bogdanovic needed to change his role midway through the regular season, moving from shooting guard to point guard on an injury-plagued team. Nonetheless, he finished the season as the fifth-best scorer in the league with 14.78 points per game, ranked third with an average of 2.17 three-point shots made, fourth in steals (1.57 spg.), fifth in minutes played (31:26), and eighth in fouls drawn (4 per game).

Fenerbahce Denies Talks For Bogdan Bogdanovic

Bogdan Bogdanovic is signed with Partizan through the 15-16 season, but he has been linked to a potential move to Fenerbahce for the 14-15 season.

Bogdanovic will be eligible for the 2014 NBA Draft.

Fenerbahce responded in a press release.

"Today, at home and abroad on several internet sites it was reported that Partizan player Bogdan Bogdanovic will be transferred to Fenerbahce Ulker, news that don’t reflect the truth. Right now, our team is focused only on the season, trying to achieve success in TBL and Euroleague. Recently news like these are aiming at the harmony of our team and should not be treated as news.”
