Bogdan Bogdanovic    G  Kings

 

 

The Kings and prospect Bogdan Bogdanovic are "likely" to share the cost of his $850k buyout from Fenerbahce, according to beat writer Ailene Voisin. Negotiations will begin on July 1 and it sounds like Bogdanovic and the Kings have a mutual desire to usher him into the NBA. Rudy Gay is expected to hit unrestricted free agency despite his Achilles surgery, while Anthony Tolliver and Aaron Afflalo both have non-guaranteed contracts for 2017-18, so there could be a positional need for Bogdanovic if he does end up with the Kings this season. Stay tuned.

Bogdan Bogdanovic    G  Kings

 

 

General manager Vlade Divac is in Turkey to see Bogdan Bogdanovic play for Fenerbahce. Bogdanovic has his team in the Euroleague final to face Olympiacos on Sunday. With talk of the Kings wanting him to join them next year, he has been solid in his 21 games, averaging 14.5 points, 3.8 boards, 3.8 assists and 1.1 steals while also trending up. It's still unclear if Bogdanovic is going to come over next year and he's made it clear he won't talk about it until this season is over. It looks like Divac isn't going to waste any time to bring him over.

Coach Dave Joerger said "slow and steady" is the Kings' approach in the trade market, draft and free agency right now. He was asked about the offseason plans and mentioned the Kings have to focus more on their No. 5 pick in the draft. The Kings also will have to convey a top-10 protected pick to the 76ers next year or else it will be an unprotected pick in 2019. For now, it looks like the younger Kings will be the focal points next year.

Bogdan Bogdanovic    G  Kings

 

 

When asked if he's going to join the Kings for the 2017-18 season, Bogdan Bogdanovic said he's not ready to discuss that yet. "I don’t like to talk about that during the season," he said. "I have my goals here." He recently signed another one-year deal to stick with Fenerbahce, but he does have a buyout in excess of $1 million. "My interest is not only money," he said. "I want to prove that I can play in the NBA. I don’t want to go there to sit on a bench." Bogdanovic is one of the best players in Europe and the Kings are rebuilding, so he'd likely be looking at a significant role if he decides to come to the states this summer.

Vlade Divac    C  Kings

 

 

Kentucky guard De'Aaron Fox said the Kings are looking for a point guard of the future in the draft. This obviously isn't surprising news. The Kings have swung and missed on guards in the draft perhaps more than anyone since the David Kahn days in Minnesota. Fox dominated fellow lottery pick Lonzo Ball during the year, and Fox is probably isn't going to make it to the Kings given their No. 8 spot in the lottery and having a potential pick swap going to Philly.

Rudy Gay    F  Kings

 

 

Rudy Gay (Achilles) plans to opt out of his contract in order to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, according to his agent Roger Montgomery. Gay is still in recovery from his ruptured left Achilles tendon, but he's reportedly "ahead of schedule" as he's been medically cleared to begin weightlifting, and he's hopeful to get back to the court by mid-June. Gay could have opted in for $14.3 million, so it's pretty surprising to see him willing to forgo that guaranteed salary in order to test the market, considering he's coming off a very serious injury. His willingness to potentially leave money on the table is a pretty good indication that he hasn't exactly been thrilled with his experience in Sacramento thus far.

Sim Bhullar    C  Kings

 

 

Sim Bhullar has signed a deal with Guangxi in the Chinese NBL. The 7'5" center spent the 2016-17 season in Taiwan and averaged 19.7 points, 15.4 rebounds and 2.6 blocks per game. He's only 24 years old, but his conditioning has a long way to go if he hopes to make it back to the NBA.

Vlade Divac    C  Kings

 

 

The Kings are hiring Scott Perry to a high-ranking front office job, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical. He will be an executive VP and work closely with general manager Vlade Divac. Perry was an assistant GM with the Magic and it sounds like he'll do most of the leg work on the GM duties, but Divac will have the final say. It would appear the Kings aren't going after Sam Hinkie after all.

Ben McLemore    G  Kings

 

 

Coach Dave Joerger said he "absolutely" wants Ben McLemore on the Kings next season. What the Kings say and what they do are two different things, but McLemore did improve later in the season. After the break, McLemore averaged 11.5 points per game on a 56.7 true shooting percentage and he was able to get fairly consistent minutes. The Kings probably won't be drafting a shooting guard for the umpteenth time, but Buddy Hield is obviously ahead of B-Mac for now.
