The Brooklyn Nets have finally signed Bojan Bogdanovic, who was drafted No. 31 overall in 2011. The deal is for three years and $10.1 million, according to Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski.

"Having drafted Bojan in 2011, it is rewarding to finally welcome him to the Nets," Nets general manager Billy King said in a statement. "We obviously have a high regard for his game, and we are glad he will now bring that talent to Brooklyn."

Nets fans have been hearing about the 6-foot-6 swingman's game for years, and there were reports last summer that he'd come over for the 2013-2014 season. Now it's official: he'll be in Brooklyn for 2014-2015.

Bogdanovic averaged 14.8 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 30.6 minutes per game in Euroleague competition last season. The Nets have to hope that his presence will lessen the impact of losing Paul Pierce to the Washington Wizards in free agency.
