REPORT: Bucks to chase after Kings guard Bogdan Bogdanovic in free agency
After seeing their season end in utter disappointment, the Milwaukee Bucks are wasting no time in applying the necessary fine-tuning measures for their squad. According to reports, the Bucks have every intention of joining the race to sign Sacramento Kings guard Bogdan Bogdanovic.
Per Shams Charania of The Athletic, Milwaukee has set their sights on the 28-year-old shooting guard:
An expected strong suitor for Kings restricted free agent Bogdan Bogdanovic: The Milwaukee Bucks, sources said. Milwaukee will pursue additional playmaking and shooting this offseason to bolster the roster around their two-time MVP, Antetokounmpo, and All-Star Khris Middleton.
It is worth noting that Bogdanovic is going to be a restricted free agent in the offseason. This means that the Kings will have the opportunity to match any and all offers other teams may put on the table for Bogdanovic. Simply put, Sacramento remain to be in the driver’s seat here, and the Serbian national is theirs to lose.
Bogdanovic had the best season of his young career last term, averaging 15.1 points, 3.4 rebounds, 3.4 assists, and 1.0 steals per contest. A ton of his value comes from his ability to spread the floor, with the former 27th-overall pick knocking down 2.8 triples per game on a 37.2-percent clip last season.
The Bucks are in dire need of floor-spacers, and as it appears, Bogdanovic looks to be a great fit. Whether Sacramento will allow him to walk away for nothing or not is an altogether different matter, however.
