In an interview with Sportske Novosti, Bogdanovic and he talked about what kind of impact he expects to make coming into Brooklyn
"I spent one day with the GM, and another day with Coach Hollins," Bogdanovic said of his recent visit to the states to be introduced by the Nets. "They are counting on me to be in rotation of the team. Now, is it going to be like that? I hope that it will. I hope I'll get a chance, and then everything is about me. Worst thing that can happen is that I won't get a chance, but I believe that's not going to happen."
At 25 years old, Bogdanović isn't the typical NBA rookie, so I understand why his expectations are so high. Bojan sparkled in EuroBasket play last year, he dazzled in some exhibition games against NBA opponents, and he's confident that it will all translate to the next level. Personally, I really want the Nets to utilize Bogdanović as much as possible. As we saw when Mirza Teletovic first came over, a lack of opportunity can stifle a player, particularly a foreign-born player who is trying to find a groove in the States, and can easily be discouraged if he's relegated to a role of obscurity. When Mirza was given a chance last year, he soared, and I hope the Nets carry that lesson over with Bojan. Of course, there's still a lot in flux with the Nets' lineup, but I foresee Bogdanović making an impact right out of the gate.
