Bojan Bogdanovic’s buyout from Fenerbahce Ulker is written into his contract and has not been reduced, according to Bogdanovic’s agent, Marc Cornstein.

Cornstein refused to get into the specifics but says the number “has not changed” since the contract was first signed. “It’s a manageable figure, but it has not been reduced.”

Cornstein added that the number is potentially negotiable, but it is still written in his contract as of this time.

Bogdanovic told NetsDaily in February that the buyout was $2 million.

Recent reports have pegged the buyout at $1 million and $570,000. A buyout under $575,000 would be payable entirely by the Brooklyn Nets, meaning that Bogdanovic would not have to pay any of his money out of pocket towards the buyout.

In 49 games across Euroleague and Turkish League, Bogdanovic averaged 14.6 points in 26.2 minutes per game, with shooting splits of 55.9% from two-point range, 38.4% from three-point range, and 83.1% from the line. Bogdanovic also led the Euroleague round of 16 in scoring.

    1. I really think Blatche stays, even if it’s for another minimum deal. He seems to love it here, and honestly, I think he still might have a bad reputation around the league. That being said, I can see a stupid team that’s desperate for any solid player, like the Bobcats, offer him something like $8 million per year.

      1. Per year salary is essentially meaningless. It’s all about length of contract.

        And don’t read anything into “he loves it here,” or “he wants revenge on the Wizards,” because once he sits down with his agent and he is told that he can either take the risk of playing on a one year deal and possibly lose millions (if things don’t go well) just to get the Wizards back or he can take financial security, he will go for the money and security.
