The Los Angeles Lakers seemed obsessed with getting the services of Bojan Bogdanovic. There was talk of different offers sent by the Californian team for the power forward, but in the end the Detroit Pistons took over the services of the versatile player.
The Utah Jazz continue to deal with their team and traded Bogdanovic for Kelly Olynyk and Saben Lee. The team has let out figures of the stature of the Croatian, the Frenchman Rudy Gobert and the star Donovan Mitchell, with which they bet on the future and not on the next season.
Bogdanovic seemed like an ideal player for the Lakers’ scheme, as he could be a good piece to play in position 3 and thus complement himself with LeBron James, who will act as center, and Anthony Davis, who will play as center for the team.
Bogdanovic has a well-respected long-range shot, is a good defender, and can fit into a variety of schemes, so the Lakers’ decision not to go after him seems counterintuitive.
The European comes from averaging 18.1 points and 4.3 rebounds per game last season and could be the team’s third scorer, behind James and Davis. But everything remained in simple intentions and now he will be a figure in the gear of the Detroit Pistons.
