The Phoenix Suns will enter negotiations with Bogdan Bogdanovic to bring him over to the NBA.
This is the last year that Bogdanovic would be required to sign on the NBA rookie scale as the Suns' No. 27 draft pick in 2014. That contract could pay him up to $5.7 million over four years, including two team options. The Suns are allowed to contribute as much as $650,000 toward Bogdanovic's buyout from Fenerbahce with Bogdanovic paying the remainder.
If Bogdanovic does not sign with the Suns this year, they would retain his rights in 2017 but Bogdanovic could then negotiate a contract for any amount with the minimum being his draft year's rookie salary scale.
Ryan McDonough said the Suns would allow Bogdanovic to have a few days after the Turkish League finals were complete before they talked to him by phone to "figure out before the draft if he's going to come over for next season."
