Bojan Bogdanovic can play basketball. It doesn’t matter that it’s his rookie season with the Brooklyn Nets, he’s experienced high-level basketball in Europe for years now, all he needed to get comfortable in the U.S. was time.
He seems to have found a nice comfort level now.
Bogdanovic was drafted by the Nets in 2011 and played overseas for the last three seasons before signing a three-year deal.
“He wasn’t a secret over there,” Nets’ coach Lionel Hollins said. “The Nets had his rights for three years and were talking about him every year, about how he played. He played well in the World Cup (for Croatia over the summer), which I watched, and I just thought he was a basketball player, and he showed tonight that he makes basketball plays when his shooting is not at its best.”
Now, after Bogdanovic dropped a career-high 22 points on the Magic, the rest of the NBA knows, too.
