After a two-and-a-half-year spell with the Nets, Bogdanovic was traded for a first round pick to the Wizards. Washington hoped Bogdanovic could be the spark of the bench, but he disappointed in the playoffs, leading the Wizards to not include him in their plans for the future.
Wizards have withdrawn qualifying offer to RFA Bojan Bogdanovic, per source; he is now an unrestricted free agent.

Washington has rescinded its qualifying offer to Bogdanovic he became an unrestricted free agent with it not lasting long before the Pacers scooped him up. When the Wizards salary cap situation is considered, this was an expected move. Bogdanovic was reportedly seeking a deal in the region of $15 million per year, which was too much for the Wizards who still need to re-sign forward Otto Porter.
The Pacers have lost their starting small forward and Bogdanovic will most probably be the starter.
“Bogs” is a great shooter but, unfortunately for him, is pretty much average at everything else.
