By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher 

Free agent Bogdan Bogdanović officially signed his contract with the Atlanta Hawks on Thursday. He received a four-year, $72 million deal. 

He became a member of the Hawks when the Sacramento Kings elected not to match his offer sheet. The restricted free agent will now suit up for the Hawks beginning on December 22nd.

“New Chapter Atlanta Hawks,” Bogdanović said in an Instagram post. “I’m super excited for the new opportunity, new challenges and new goals. Can’t wait for the season to start, and show the world how good I am in this game. I didn’t come here just to be here! Let’s get it Atlanta #truetoAtlanta”

The team’s starting 2020-21 lineup is expected to include Tray Young and Kevin Huerter at the two guard positions. Bogdanović and John Collins are expected to be the two forwards.

Clint Capela — who was acquired in a February trade — is expected to be the starting center.

This is Bogdanović’s second NBA team. He spent three seasons with the Kings.
