Rumor: Bogdan Bogdanovic could sign 4-year, $72 million deal with Hawks

Bogdan Bogdanovic, Hawks

The Atlanta Hawks remain confident they are going to get Sacramento Kings small forward Bogdan Bogdanovic, who is a restricted free agent.

According to Chris Kirschner of The Athletic, Bogdanovic could sign a four-year, $72 million deal with the Hawks.

But his production may not ultimately matter as much if the Hawks can land Sacramento guard Bogdan Bogdanovic. Sources remain confident that Atlanta is in strong position to sign him. I’ve heard Bogdanovic’s deal could be somewhere around four years and $72 million.

As a restricted free agent, Bogdanovic is free to sign an offer sheet with any team he wants and then the Kings will have 48 hours to match the deal. By all accounts, Bogdanovic is motivated to leave the Kings and continue his NBA career elsewhere, so he’s got to be hoping that Sacramento doesn’t match his offer sheet.

The Hawks are making a lot of win-now moves. They signed Danilo Gallinari, Kris Dunn and Rajon Rondo, three players who mesh well with Atlanta star point guard Trae Young.

With the Kings in 2019-20, Bogdanovic averaged 15.1 points, 3.4 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game while shooting 44.0 percent from the field, 37.2 percent from beyond the arc and 74.1 percent from the free-throw line.

The Hawks won only 20 games in 2019-20 before the season was suspended in March due to COVID-19. The team, though, should be much better next season with the moves they are making this offseason.
