Bojan Bogdanovic: 4 years, $73 million (Utah Jazz)
Four years and $73 million seems like a hefty amount to pay, but it’s pretty close to market value for Bojan Bogdanovic, who enjoyed a career year last season and admirably stepped up for an Indiana Pacers squad that was missing its best player in Victor Oladipo.
Averaging a career-best 18.0 points and 4.1 rebounds per game while canning 42.5 percent of his 3s, Bogey was the best player on the 5-seed in the Eastern Conference. That team was swept in the first round, but Bogdanovic was never meant to be a go-to option on offense.
That’s what makes this partnership with the Utah Jazz so exciting. As a high-volume sniper from 3, Bogdanovic will spread the floor and provide a secondary scoring punch to a Jazz offense that needed it last season. With Mike Conley already on board and more depth moves to come, Utah is having a quietly excellent summer.
