Bucks and Hawks pursuing Bogdan Bogdanovic, per report

Bogi is suddenly a hot target in free agency.

The NBA was rocked by several big trades late Monday evening. The biggest trade was the Milwaukee Bucks acquiring Jrue Holiday for George Hill, Eric Bledsoe, and a slew of draft picks and swaps. In the fallout, we began to wonder if the Bucks' previous interest in Bogdan Bogdanovic may now be dead. That's not the case, according to The Ringer's Kevin O'Connor.

Not only are the Bucks interested, but the Hawks as well.

The Kings, of course, hold the leverage in any trade for Bogi. As a restricted free agent, the Kings have the right to match any contracts Bogdan signs. For any sign-and-trade, the Kings would need to feel they were being fairly compensated.

The question now is what the Bucks have left in the cupboard should the Kings be amenable to a sign-and-trade. The most likely player coming back would be Donte DiVicenzo, but the Bucks no longer have any draft capital to use to sweeten the deal.

The Hawks would presumably seek to sign Bogdanovic outright to a deal rich enough or structured in a way to dissuade the Kings from matching.

It's going to be a hectic couple of days with the draft on Wednesday and free agency kicking off on Friday.

Kings can’t sign and trade Bogi until Friday. The draft is Wednesday. Kings would have no say in ATL’s #6 pick this year.

I don’t think the Bucks have anything left for the Kings in a sign and trade. If Bogi signs an offer sheet with them, the Kings are screwed. They either retain him (the better option), they let him walk (worst case scenario), or they get Alex Oriahki and a box of rocks in a S&T. I’m not a fan of those options.

Donte and what? They have no picks or contracts left to trade to make it worthwhile.

Adding…they will be hard capped with a Bogi S&T. I’m just not seeing how it works.

Couple decent players, three picks, and two swaps? Is it me or was that a massive overpay for Jrue Holiday? I guess that’s the cost of keeping your mega-star happy.

I knew someone would exploit the Bucks desperation to keep Giannis. Bravo Pels!

What’s left that we’d want? Just match it

Can someone please explain how there was a sign and trade of a RFA before free agency has even begun?

Just in from Woj: Bucks get Bogdan + Justin James for Donte, Ersan and DJ Wilson.

If this push through this Friday, Monte is now MILES BETTER than Vlade. This looks like we won’t be retaining Nemanja with Ersan onboard.

I think Tim just pointed this out on twitter but the Kings are definitely tanking and getting whatever they can for Bogi so that they can rebuild around Fox. The Kings are probably going to be really bad this year but Monte looks like he’s getting ready to clear the decks which I am all the way here for. Tank and get a really high pick in an awesome 2021 draft. And who knows, maybe Donte and DJ Wilson will be turn out to be solid. But this really seems like it’s about playing out this year, dumping Walton in the offseason and resetting next year.

no I don’t think they’re tanking. More likely that Atlanta was going to pay something the Kings wouldn’t want to match and they figured they’d rather get Divincenzo out of it than nothing.

Why can’t it be both? I think Buddy will be gone as well in the next couple days.

I suppose it could. Both of us are speculating. I just don’t think McNair is a tanking kind of GM.
