Bogdan Bogdanović deal to Milwaukee appears to be off

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

The Milwaukee Bucks proposed sign-and-trade featuring Bogdan Bogdanović appears to have fallen apart. Bogdanović now appears to be a restricted free agent beginning on Friday.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the proposed deal is now in peril. The reported deal — which leaked out on Monday night — would have sent Donte DiVincenzo, D.J. Wilson, and veteran Ersan İlyasova to Milwaukee.

If it would have happened, it would have improved the Bucks roster with a proposed agreement to add Jrue Holiday, as well.

With Bogdanović electing to become a free agent, the Kings may be forced to find another deal featuring the 28-year-old Serbian. He will officially become a restricted free agent on Friday at 6 pm EST.

Wherever Bogdanović’s goes, it’ll be his second NBA team. He spent three seasons with the Kings.

He was a first-round draft pick by the Phoenix Suns in the 2014 NBA Draft. Then, two-years later, the Suns traded his draft rights with Skal Labissière, Georgios Papagiannis and a 2020 2nd round draft pick to the Sacramento Kings for Marquese Chriss.

He has appeared in 209 games, including 98 starts. He has averaged 13.5 points, 3.2 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 1.0 steals, and 0.2 blocks in 28.2 minutes per game.
