Bogdan Bogdanovic might not have reached the playoffs in his rookie NBA season but he received a championship ring on his arrival to Istanbul.

As the Sacramento Kings player caught up with former Fenerbahce team-mates at practice on Tuesday, he was then presented with a EuroLeague championship ring before his former side’s  playoff encounter against Baskonia.

The 25-year old led Fenerbahçe by averaging 14.6 points, 3.8 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game, guiding the Turkish side to their first EuroLeague title at the Sinan Erdem Dome.
