The Atlanta Hawks continue to reshape their roster for the upcoming season as the latest catch in the free agency net is Bogdan Bogdanovic. According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Sacramento Kings declined to match the Atlanta Hawks’ four-year $72 million offer sheet on Tuesday.
The news broke Tuesday night as the Kings had up until 11:59 pm est to make a decision on if they were going to match Atlanta’s offer.
What this means for the Hawks is that it is likely that Kevin Huerter will now come off the bench even though Coach Lloyd Pierce has not spoken on any starting 5 as of yet. Bogdanovic is a 3 tiered scorer who gives the Hawks another wing who can create his own shot and knock down open looks. Last year in Sacramento the 6’6 guard from Serbia averaged 15.1 points per game which was the 3rd highest on a very balanced Kings team.
Hawks General Manager Travis Schlenk has assembled one impressive free agent class as Bogdanovic joins Danilo Gallinari, Kris Dunn, Rajon Rondo, Solomon Hill, and Tony Snell as the new faces for this Atlanta Hawks team.
