As a rookie last season, Bogdanovic averaged 9 ppg while shooting 45 percent from the field and 35 percent from three. Bogdanovic is a guy that can play both SG and SF, and he can score in a variety of ways. He has above average post moves for a wing scorer, and he can be a spot up shooter or create his own shot. Bogdanovic will be the perfect backcourt complement to Jack, because he can get open in a variety of ways and is great at spotting up for a corner three in transition.

Bogdanovic can also play in the post, which can help the Nets vary their offense a bit. A SG with strong post moves is very rare in today’s age, and using Bogdanovic’s abilities to their advantage could be very beneficial to the Nets halfcourt flow. Bogdanovic will probably never be an all-star, but he could easily be a 15 ppg player this season. Look for him to improve off of an already impressive rookie campaign.
