Bogdan Bogdanovic is one of the most talented young players in Europe.
The Partizan Belgrade guard is averaging 15 points, 3.7 rebounds and 3.6 assists in Euroleague and 14.8 points, 3.9 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game in Adriatic League.
Bogdan Bogdanovic will likely be picked in the second round of the 2014 NBA Draft.
Per NBA, Serbian guard Bogdan Bogdanovic was on a lot of boards early as a potential first-round pick, but that ardor has cooled in recent weeks. Still, the 21-year-old is likely to go early in the second round, having played both point and shooting guard this season for KK Partizan, the legendary team that sent the likes of Vlade Divac to the NBA. He can score.
"He doesn't shoot it well enough to be a two, but he shot it better this year," an Atlantic Division executive said. "Somebody went down on that team and he had to take more responsibility, even at the point. So people see him now as a point guard. It will be tough (to guard backups). It's almost like all these guys, every team has have, like (Toronto) has (Greivis) Vasquez. He's a borderline guy, or Shelvin Mack. But he (Bogdanovic) has good talent."
Scouts also think he's tough enough to play in the league.
"He's not a super quick, dynamic ballhandler or athlete or playmaker, but most nights he's pretty mistake free," one scouting director said. "He defends his position pretty well. Has great size. If you're looking for a dynamic backcourt player, that's probably not his game."
Said another GM: "an average feel for the game, but an exceptional feel for scoring. The game overall he's okay with. Scoring, he's great with. Very crafty, very clever. Reminds me of (Denver's Evan) Fournier. He knows how to figure out a way to score. Everything else, he's just average."
