Bojan Bogdanovic or Sean Kilpatrick?
It may be telling to see who Kenny Atkinson trots out as the starter in the first preseason game. Either way, though, both Bogdanovic and Kilpatrick will get a shot. Of course, both will contribute regardless of who starts, but it’s still a storyline worth watching.
What makes it even more interesting is both players are versatile. Kilpatrick could run both guard spots, and Bogdanovic could play small forward. However, the Nets are set at point guard with Lin and Greivis Vasquez, and small forward should be occupied by Rondae Hollis-Jefferson. This likely leaves Bogdanovic and Kilpatrick fighting for time at shooting guard.
The Nets will rely on both of these players this season. Many people believe Bogdanovic is set to have a breakout season, and Brooklyn was high enough on Kilpatrick to give him a three-year deal.
The good news for the Nets is they should be in pretty good shape at both starting and backup shooting guard.
