I've only watched a couple of his games but I was focused on Nurkic or Saric. So I only know that Bogdanovic seemed rock solid and had an all around game.
What do you guys know about him, and how does he project?
He recorded a 35.8" vertical in 2010 so even though he's not very quick he does have some good hops.
He's listed as a 6'6" shooting guard, but I think he's going to measure out at 6'7" in shoes, and he has a wingspan of 6'11+" as of 2010. Wouldn't be surprised if he grew more since he was last measured at age 17 or 18.
Very good pg skills for his size too, he really has an all around game.
Could be one of those Euros who rise late in the draft process like Karasev last year or Fournier the year before, who rose up into the top 20 and was drafted by Denver.
For all I know, Bogdanovic will end up being right there with Rodney hood and James Young.
Thoughts, insights? Thanks
What if your last name were just your first name all over again, but with ovic at the end? I'd be Andrew Andrewovic. How fun!
It's pretty much the same as being called John Johnson. It happens in every language.
Pete Peterson approves this post.
He was the star of one of the top two Serbian teams this year. His wingspan and outside shooting ability makes him an intriguing prospect. I really think he has a good chance to be a major contributor for an established team like San Antonio. He needs to become a more efficient player, but his percentages could be a testament to the fact that he was relied upon heavy by his team to do a bulk of the scoring.
8'8+" standing reach is higher than Jabari's. Pretty elite for a SG and very solid for a SF.

Euroleague Rising Star Trophy: Bogdan Bogdanovic, Fenerbahce Ulker Istanbul
"His unique combination of basketball skills and scoring ability together with maturity and poise have led Turkish Airlines Euroleague head coaches to vote Bogdan Bogdanovic of Fenerbahce Ulker Istanbul as the Euroleague Rising Star Trophy winner for the second season in a row. The Rising Star Trophy recognizes the best Euroleague player each season who was under the age of 22 on July 1 of the summer before the season started. No Fenerbahce player started more games than the 22-year-old Bogdanovic and only one played more minutes than the savvy guard, whose 289 points scored led all Rising Star Trophy-eligible players this season. Having won the award also last season, when he played for Partizan NIS Belgrade, Bogdanovic joins Nikola Mirotic, who did so in 2011 and 2012 with Real Madrid, as the only players to win the Rising Star Trophy twice. Bogdanovic is also the first Fenerbahce player to win the award.
He was followed in the head coaches' voting by Anadolu Efes Istanbul teammates Dario Saric and Cedi Osman, by Mario Hezonja of FC Barcelona and by Alessandro Gentile of EA7 Emporio Armani Milan. The Rising Star Trophy is one of several end-of-season honors awarded by Euroleague Basketball. Earlier in the week, Nizhny Novgorod guard Taylor Rochestie was announced as the recipient of the 2014-15 Alphonso Ford Top Scorer Trophy and Olympiacos Piraeus big man Bryant Dunston was voted by the head coaches as the 2014-15 Best Defender Trophy winner. Still to be revealed are the All-Euroleague honorees. The bwin MVP award will be announced at the EFES Euroleague Awards Ceremony on Thursday, May 14 during the Final Four in Madrid."
I nailed this one.
