Fantasy Slant: Kings Sign 2014 First-Round Pick Bogdan Bogdanovic to Three-Year Contract

The Sacramento Kings added to their strong young nucleus on Wednesday by reportedly signing 2014 first-round pick Bogdan Bogdanovic to a three-year contract worth north of $30 million. 

An original first-round pick of the Phoenix Suns (27th overall) back in 2014, Bogdanovic has been playing overseas for Fenerbahçe of the Turkish Basketball Super League. The guard earned all-EuroLeague honors this past season, putting up 16.7 points per game while shooting at a 50 percent clip from the field. 

It's not yet known what role the 24-year-old will have in Sacramento, but we anticipate him being a large part of the picture in 2017-18. 

Sacramento dominated last week's draft, adding guard De'Aaron Fox and forward Justin Jackson to the mix in the first round. Both are expected to start and form a solid trio with recent acquisition Buddy Hield, who was picked up on the DeMarcus Cousins trade back in February. 

Bogdanovic could, however, impact the usage rate of both Hield and Jackson this upcoming season. At 6-foot-6, he has the ability to play small forward, a position Jackson himself excelled in during his college career.
