Kings Plan On Signing Bogdan Bogdanovic In Offseason

Feb 26, 2017 10:51 AM

The Sacramento Kings plan on signing Bogdan Bogdanovic in the offseason.

The Kings acquired the draft rights to Bogdanovic from the Phoenix Suns at the 2016 draft. Bogdanovic was the 27th overall pick in the 2014 draft by the Phoenix Suns.

Bogdanovic is a 24-year-old shooting guard presently playing with Fenerbahce.

Vlade Divac confirmed Sacramento's plans when talking about the Kings' culture.

"I want to build a culture, and he didn’t fit in my culture," said Divac. "Before we were just talking, preaching. But if we’re going to do it, you do it. The good thing about our situation now is that we have some very nice assets, a few more shooting guards, and time to take a look at Willie (Cauley-Stein), Skal (Labissiere) and Malachi (Richardson) when he gets healthy, and Georgios Papagiannis. Ty Lawson has been very good for us, and Darren (Collison) is playing well, and he will be a free agent. Kosta (Koufas) has been good. We have (Bogdan) Bogdanovic coming over next season as another asset."
