Bojan Bogdanović was selected with the No. 31 overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft by the Miami Heat. He was later traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves and then the New Jersey Nets on draft night, though he didn’t make his NBA debut until 2014.
Bogdanović has played for the Brooklyn Nets, Washington Wizards and Indiana Pacers, and he has never appeared in fewer than 78 games in a season during his NBA career. Last season with the Pacers, Bogdanović averaged career highs in points (18.0), rebounds (4.1), assists (2.0), steals (1.0) and 3-pointers (2.0) per game, and in FG% (.497).
He signed a four-year contract with the Jazz in July 2019.
Bogdanović was named to the NBA All-Rookie Second Team in 2015. He scored a career-high 44 points against the Sixers in 2016 and made eight 3-pointers against the Magic in 2017. Bogdanović also represented Croatia at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, where he led all scorers with 25.3 points per game.
Born in Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bogdanović played for Real Madrid’s junior team and then spent five years playing professionally in Europe—for Croatian club Cibona Zagreb (2009–11) and Turkish powerhouse Fenerbahce (2011–14).
