Serbian star Bogdan Bogdanovic could end up as a restricted free agent following the end of this season, according to Jason Anderson of the Sacramento Bee.

Anderson suggests that the 27-year old guard is unlikely to sign an extension with the Sacramento Kings and instead will try to get a better contract in free agency, especially after a strong personal performance for Serbia national team in FIBA World Cup 2019:

“Bogdanovic is likely to end up becoming a restricted free agent as well, but for different reasons. The Kings would probably sign him to a max extension right now if he would agree to an average salary of $12.85 million, but after a big summer with the Serbian national team he could command more money as one of the best players in a weak free-agent class.”

Last season Bogdanovic played 70 games for the Kings averaging 14.1 points, 3.8 assists and 3.5 rebounds per game during 27.8 minutes of play.

Bogdanovic has been with the Kings since 2017 after joining the team from EuroLeague powerhouse Fenerbahce.
