The Milwaukee Bucks and Bogdan Bogdanovic are upset with each other after the recent developments regarding the sign-and-trade deal.
Even though the Bucks and the Sacramento Kings had a deal in place that would send Bogdanovic to Milwaukee, the Serbian guard never agreed to it. Therefore, the deal is very close to collapsing and the two sides are upset with each other.
“‘I think there’s a fair amount of displeasure between the two sides in terms of the Bucks and Bogdan’s camp,’ The Athletic’s Sam Amick said Wednesday on The Athletic NBA Show.
For his part, Bogdanovic is expected to enter restricted free agency on Friday, November 20.

Even though several online sportsbooks already consider the Bucks a title contender next season, the team needs to make changes to its roster.
