Prospect Profile

Bojan Bogdanovic

  • Full Name: Bojan Bogdanovic
  • Position: Guard / Forward
  • Height/Weight: 6-7 1/2 / 218
  • Birthdate: April 18, 1989
  • College: Cibona Zagreb (Croatia)
Miami Heat Round 2: Pick 31

Strengths:

  * Good size for position
  * Nice shooter with smooth stroke and easy range
  * Can shoot off dribble and uses screens well
  * Can create his own shot, creative use of fakes and footwork
  * Good length and solid, not great, jumping ability

Weaknesses:

  * Lacks elite-level athleticism
  * Poor one-on-one defender, doesn't work at it as hard as he should
  * Below average rebounder
 

NBA projection:
Second-round draft pick, allow him time for further development in Europe.

2010-11 season:
He's the go-to-guy on a mediocre Cibona Zagreb team.  He's become very confident as a primary scorer and also assists the PG in ball-handling situations. He is teammates with Leon Radosevic, Mario Delas, and Tomislave Zubcic on Cibona.

Key statistic:
2010-11 Cibona – Adriatic League: 35 mpg, 18.9 ppg, 3.9 rpg, 2.5 apg. FG 53%, 3P 34%, FT 74%
Cibona – Euroleague: 35 mpg, 18 ppg, 3.5 rpg, 1.8 apg, 1.7 spg. FG 47%, 3P 31%, FT 76%

Cool statistic:
Bojan, who's already an important part of the Croatian national team, has scored 20+ points 16 times this season so far (four in Euroleague and 12 in the Adriatic League). He's gone over 25 points nine times (three in Euroleague, six in Adriatic league).

Reminds me of:
Kyle Korver, Mike Miller

What the Experts Say:
Neil Leitereg (Examiner.com)
"Bogdanovic could very well get some first-round draft consideration in 2011 should he make himself eligible. He has as much upside as any shooting guard potentially available in the draft, given his age, physical attributes, athleticism and the production Bogdanovic has put up so far in Euroleague and Adriatic League circles."

Jeff Fox (Slam Online)
"The 6-7 Bogdanovic is plenty experienced, as he's competing in his third year in the Euroleague this season. He's actually doing more than competing – he's currently second in the league in scoring, pumping in 18 points a game, using his great outside shot and ability to drive and draw fouls to light up Europe's scoreboards."

Current contract and team:
Cibona Zagreb (Croatia) - Adriatic League and Euroleague
