Hold the phone on Bogdanovic

Despite earlier reports that the Nets had brought in Croatian G/F Bojan Bogdanovic, it now appears to be untrue.

Bogdanvic himself was a guest on a Croatian radio station and he explained his side of the contract negotiations with the Nets.

“It is not true that I signed a three-year deal with the Nets. Chances that I will play for Brooklyn next year are about 50 percent, maybe little more, but the only truth is that negotiations are ongoing and that before Monday or Tuesday I will not know anything more. I hope the agreement will be made before the Croatian National Team training camp begins.”

He was also said he was in contact with Fenerbahce’s new head coach, Zeljko Obradovic, also known as the Phil Jackson of Europe, about possibly staying overseas.

“I spoke to Zeljko Obradovic and he told me he would like me to stay in Fenerbahce, and I would like to work with the winningest European coach. However, until negotiations with the Nets end, I will not know much more.”

Finally, Bogdanovic was also asked if he has spoken with Mirza Teletovic, who was also born in Mostar.

“I did not speak with Teletovic cause my negotiations with the Nets are in early stages. If it all becomes more serious I will definitely speak with him. But that there (the NBA) is all the pinnacle of world basketball, I don’t need to ask him much. I hope it will all end soon.”

Obviously, we’re hoping a deal gets done, and we’re confident that it will. Be sure to check out our reaction to the supposed deal, which is now a complete hypothetical until a contract is sorted out.
