Earlier this month, Bogdanovic said in a post to his Facebook page that he expects to play a bigger factor in the Nets' offense this season.
"I expect a whole new role, however not concerning the minutes spent on the court, but regarding ball allocation," Bogdanovic wrote. "I expect to have the ball more often in my possession, and thus a better season than the previous one."
In his rookie season, Bogdanovic averaged nine points, 0.9 assists, and 2.7 rebounds in 23.8 minutes per game.
Based on the way Bogdanovic finished the season, he should get the ball more in the Nets' new-look offense. After a big November, Bojan saw his minutes drop, and his numbers responded in kind. But over the course of his final 25 games, Bogdanovic averaged 11.7 points per game, shooting 51.3 percent over that span.
It may have taken Bogdanovic a while to adjust to the U.S., but it was clear from the way he finished that he can be an impact player in the NBA. Now that the Nets will have two major weapons down low to create some shooting space, Bojan should be a focal point, and the 26 year old sophomore is ready for the challenge.
