2014 NBA Redraft: 10. Bogdan Bogdanovic, Philadelphia 76ers

A member of the 2014 Draft class, Bogdan Bogdanovic is only in his fourth season. Upon being drafted 27th overall, he remained overseas for the next three seasons, averaging double-digit scoring numbers while flashing an impressive 3-point stroke in the EuroLeague.

Since his arrival to the NBA, Bogdanovic has proven to be worth the wait with a smaller learning curve than most. Already in his mid-20s, he’s shown poise beyond his years and has built a solid frame at 6’6” and roughly 205 pounds.

His 3-point stroke has translated to the NBA game in the form of a more than 37 percent conversion rate on north of 5.0 attempts per game. It’s a good starting point for Bogdanovic’s offensive arsenal, opening up the court and creating wider driving lanes. He still needs to improve his efficiency from inside the arc, but that should come with more time getting adjusted to specific defensive coverages.

When it comes to talent, Bogdanovic should be selected higher in this draft. He’s had a productive career with averages of more than 13 points, 3.0 rebounds and 3.0 assists in less than 30 minutes of nightly action.

He sought to put that talent to better use when he signed with the Atlanta Hawks. The early results have fallen short of expectations. Playing on a competitive playoff-hopeful for one of the few times in his career, it won’t be long before Bogdanovic is turning more heads his way.
