Pacers sign forward Bojan Bogdanovic to 2-year deal

The Indiana Pacers moved quickly on Bojan Bogdanovic after the Washington Wizards rescinded their qualifying offer making him an unrestricted free agent.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports that Bogdanovic agreed to a 2-year, $21 million deal. The second-year is only partially guaranteed.

Kevin Pritchard mentioned that he was looking to add shooting first and foremost to the roster as it stood today and he found it in Bogdanovic. Last season, he averaged 13.7 points per game while shooting 37% from 3-point range splitting his time between the Brooklyn Nets and the Wizards.

Bogdanovic can play either forward position and split his time between small forward and power forward with the Wizards last year as he hit 39% of his long-range attempts in his 23 games with the team. As the roster is currently constructed, he’s more likely to play small forward for the Pacers as they have an abundance of bigs.

This is a similar deal that the Pacers gave Darren Collison earlier this week as the Pacers keep there options open for maximum cap space next year.
