Video: Kings’ Bogdan Bogdanovic puts Rudy Gobert on skates
The Sacramento Kings are one of the up and coming teams in the NBA. Part of the Kings’ youth movement is Bogdan Bogdanovic — the second-year guard out of Serbia who has made some serious improvements in 2018-19.
Facing the Utah Jazz on Friday night, Bogdanovic went inside his bag of tricks against Rudy Gobert, the league’s reigning Defensive Player of the Year. Bogdanovic pulled off a crossover and a behind-the-back to masterfully execute a move that put the Stifle Tower on skates.

Unfortunately, Bogdanovic failed to convert on the play and his crossover is perhaps the one bright spot for him on the night. The Kings fell to the Jazz, 119-98, in a total decimation by the playoff-bound team.
Bogdanovic had a quiet night with 10 points, three rebounds, and four assists as opposed to Gobert’s impactful 17 points, 11 rebounds, three steals, and four blocks.
There will be no playoff appearance for the Kings, continuing their streak, but the future looks bright for Sac-Town. De’Aaron Fox looks like he’s on his way to becoming the perfect leader for the Kings. Buddy Hield is establishing a reputation as one of the deadliest young gunslingers in the Western Conference. Their frontcourt tandem of Marvin Bagley III and Harry Giles showed plenty of promise.
