Croatian national team excited about Bojan Bogdanovic
Bojan Bogdanovic had a respectable rookie season for the Nets in 2014-15, making Second-Team All-Rookie and contributing mightily to a playoff team. Now, his teammates on the Croatian national team are excited to see what he can do over the summer.
Bogdanovic got off to a slow start during his rookie season, but turned it around, finishing the year averaging 9.0 points per game on 36 percent three-point shooting. If the Nets end up trading Joe Johnson, as is one of their offseason goals, Boggy could end up becoming Brooklyn's go-to wing scorer at the start of next season.

In its weekly video report, FIBA TV talks about the importance of the Nets swingman, calling him "heart and soul of this team" and it's "Swiss Army knife."
Indeed, the red and white are loaded, but Bogdanovic is the star. In addition to Bogie, there's Damjan Rudez, the 6'10" forward for the Pacers; Dario Saric, the 6'8" point forward whose rights are held by the Sixers; Ante Tomic, the 7'2" center for F.C. Barcelona; and Mario Hezonja, the hyper athletic 6'8" small forward who's likely to be taken in the top 10 later this month.
FIBA TV also notes Bogdanovic's accomplishments the last two summers, being voted to the first team all-Eurobasket in 2013, and finishing tied for second (with Andray Blatche) in scoring during last year's FIBA World Cup.
