After the Wizards withdrew their qualifying offer to Bogdanovic in order to clear cap room to match the Nets' offer sheet to Otto Porter, the Pacers quickly snatched up Bogdanovic. Bogdanovic, a 6-foot-8 wing, can play shooting guard through power forward depending on the lineup, though is most suited for small forward. He shot 36.7 percent from beyond the arc last season en route to 13.7 points across 25.7 minutes per game. At the moment, considering the Pacers' depth, it seems likely that he'll command a similar workload heading into next season, probably plateauing his fantasy value.
Bogdanovic became an unrestricted free agent Friday after the Wizards withdrew their qualifying offer to him, David Aldridge of Turner Sports reports.
In the wake of restricted free agent Otto Porter agreeing to a four-year, $106 million offer sheet with the Nets, the Wizards have withdrawn their qualifying offer to Bogdanovic, likely to free up the space to match the Nets' offer sheet to Porter. The Wizards traded for Bogdanovic last season prior to the deadline to boost their bench heading into the playoffs. He averaged 13.7 points (44.5 percent from the field and 36.7 percent from three) and 3.4 boards across 25.7 minutes per game during 2016-17.
Bogdanovic is expected to play through a case of the flu Friday against the Celtics, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports.
Bogdanovic has been instrumental in the Wizards' two wins this series, averaging 16 points in those contests versus just 5.3 in the three games they've lost. As a result, Washington will certainly welcome Bogdanovic playing through illness, as he's anticipated to do Friday.
Bogdanovic finished with 19 points (6-12 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 10 rebounds and two assists across 29 minutes during Thursday's 116-89 Game 3 victory over the Celtics.
Bogdanovic, who was averaging just 8.5 points per game this postseason coming into Thursday's Game 3, erupted for an efficient double-double off the pine. That being said, he's always been a streaky shooter, so it was theoretically only a matter of time before he had a breakout game -- though the 10 rebounds seem like an anomaly considering that he averaged just 3.4 boards across 25.7 minutes per game in the regular season. If he can continue to be a force off the bench, the Wizards won't go down easily to the top-seeded Celtics. That being said, Bogdanovic's inconsistent scoring and rebounding numbers make him a risky play in DFS on any given night.
