Report: Sixers, Hornets interested in Bogdan Bogdanovic, Kings comfortable keeping him
However, the Kings insist they are comfortable entering the offseason with Bogdanovic as a restricted free agent.
The Kings are receiving serious interest for small forward Bogdan Bogdanovic, but a source with knowledge of their plans still insists that they’re comfortable keeping him and attempting to re-sign him in restricted free agency summer. As of early Wednesday afternoon, the prospect of a Lakers-Kings deal involving Kyle Kuzma was not being discussed. Sources told myself and our Shams Charania that Philadelphia and Charlotte were among the interested teams, though you get the sense that more than half the league has logged interest of some kind.
Aside from the Sixers and Hornets, the Los Angeles Lakers have also been rumored to be interested in Bogdanovic. However, the Sacramento franchise is not blown away by a trade package that would land them Kyle Kuzma.
Kings head coach Luke Walton recently moved Buddy Hield to the bench to make Bogdanovic a starter.
In 39 games for the Kings this season, Bogdanovic is averaging 14.6 points, 3.1 rebounds and 3.3 assists. He’s shooting 43.7 percent from the field, 37.8 percent from beyond the arc and 69.2 percent from the free-throw line.
The Kings are 19-31 on the season. They are in 13th place in the Western Conference standings.
