3. Who Starts at SG?

All signs point to Bojan Bogdanovic as the opening day starting SG, and Hollins stated in his interview with Mazzeo that, going into camp, Bogdanovic is indeed the starter.

Just because Hollins feels that way now doesn’t mean that’s the way he will feel at the end of training camp. Wayne Ellington was signed by the Nets this off-season and brings an interesting dynamic to this roster. While Bogdanovic came out and said he is prepared to take on a bigger role with the team this upcoming season, he didn’t exactly shine during his time in Eurobasket play this summer.

Of course, it’s not fair to predict that the way he played in Eurobasket will carry over into the regular season, but it definitely raises some concerns. He suffered a concussion and an ankle sprain while playing for the Croatian National team. Throughout his five games, Bogdanovic averaged 10.8 points per game while shooting an abysmal 16.7 percent from three.

Ellington has been a consistent three-point threat throughout his entire six-year career. If he can show Hollins that he is more consistent from deep and a better perimeter defender than Bogdanovic, Ellington could very well see himself being entered into the starting lineup.
