Scouting Report. 1.1 WS. Bogdan Bogdanovic. 2. player. 84. Pick Analysis. Shooting Guard

A rock solid start to the regular season for the Sacramento Kings underrated 27-year-old 6-foot-6 shooting guard Bogdan Bogdanovic did cool down a bit of late. But Bogdanovic is still going to be one of the more sought after sharpshooters if he sticks on the trade block heading into the 2020 deadline. He’s shooting better than 38 percent from beyond the arc so far this season.

The Kings almost have too many guards that can space the floor but are defensive liabilities. Former Oklahoma Sooners shooting guard (and former top 10 draft pick) Buddy Hield is the perfect example of that. It just looks like the Kings are getting too clogged at the two-guard, and have other needs that have to be addressed in the near future.

So far this season, Bogdanovic is averaging 14.7 points per game, 2.9 rebounds, and 3.8 assists while also shooting around 42 percent from the field. He has a 15.1 player efficiency rating and is in the process of registering career bests in a number of advanced stat categories. His number of win shares per 48 minutes (.074) and his usage rate (24.0 percent) are top career marks so far.

The need that Bogdanovic really fills for the Chicago Bulls is that off a sharpshooter that can play well off of either 6-foot-7 former Wizards guard Tomas Satoransky or fellow shooting guard Zach LaVine. Bogdanovic does command a good amount of usage, but not so much that LaVine couldn’t be the primary ball handler and scorer when he’s hot.
