Reports indicate Bogdan will sign a 3-year contract worth $30 million

Bogdan Bogdanovic, whose rights the Sacramento Kings acquired in a draft day trade last year, is expected to join the Kings and sign a 3-year contract worth $30 million. This report comes from international basketball outlet Sportando.

We normally might wait for another outlet to confirm, but there’s no reason to doubt this report. The years and dollar amounts line up with what most experts (and a few hacks like myself) have expected.

Teams can begin agreeing to terms with free agents on July 1st, and deals can be officially signed a week later.

This is an exciting move for the Kings. Bogdanovic has just completed an incredible season which concluded with a Euroleague championship.

Kings fans will need to wait a little longer to see Bogdan in action for the Kings, though. Because Bogdan has essentially been playing all throuhout the NBA playoffs, he won’t be participating in Summer League.

While Bogdan coming to Sacramento was expected, it wasn’t a sure thing. The infusion of young talent to the Kings roster continues, and gives us yet another reason to be excited for the coming season.

Welcome to Sacramento, Bogdan!
