Atlantic Notes: Bogdanovic, Allen, Knicks

With the Nets seeking to forge a new identity as the team rebuilds, the 2016/17 campaign will be Bojan Bogdanovic‘s best chance to solidify a place in the NBA for himself, Anthony Puccio of NetsDaily writes. The team has let the 27-year-old know that he is in its plans this season, sending assistant coach Chris Fleming overseas to speak with the forward earlier this summer, Puccio notes.

It’s important for me that Chris came to Zagreb, that Nets sent him there,” said Bogdanovic. “That’s proof for me that Nets have big plans for me in next season. We talked a lot what I should improve in my game. He said me how to be more consistent in spot up shooting coming from screens. Also, I should post up more, because I did that a lot in Europe, but not in NBA.

Here’s more from the Atlantic Division:

  • The Knicks included partial guarantees of $100K in the contracts of Chasson Randle and J.P. Tokoto, Eric Pincus of Basketball Insiders tweets.
  • By virtue of remaining on the Sixers roster, Robert Covington‘s salary for next season worth $1,015,696 is now partially guaranteed for $50K, Pincus notes (via Twitter). The remainder of the forward’s deal won’t be guaranteed until January 10th, 2017.
  • Ray Allen has reportedly has had discussions with a number of teams regarding a potential NBA comeback. But if the veteran shooting guard is serious about a potential reunion with the Celtics, some fences would need to be mended with team ownership first, Gary Washburn of The Boston Globe Opines (Video link).

The Nets are the laughing stock of the NBA. No one would miss them if they moved to Wyoming. They won’t win a dozen games this season. Possibly the worst team ever assembled.

I think the 76ers from two or three yeaes ago take that honor of worst team ever assembled. Brook Lopez alone was lightyears better than the 76ers best player at the time (Covington? Noel? Ish Smith?).

JT believe me these NETS will make the 76ers team you speak about look like world champions! Woodhead posted the NETS will be in the playoffs. The only way that happens is if they BUY tickets to watch. They will not win 12 games all year. I predict a 11-71 season for this moribund franchise with no future! I still can’t believe GM Billy King traded unprotected lottery picks for dinosaurs Garnett and Pierce setting this franchise back to the dark ages! That King is still with the NETS says it all about this dysfunctional team. I believe it was… Read more »

Sean Marks should be embarrassed by this conglomeration of misfits and washed up veterans he’s assembled. No one wants to play for the NETS and who can blame them? This is the worst team ever assembled in NBA history. If they packed up and moved to Rhode Island tonight believe me no one would miss them. The NETS could always send a press release that the team disappeared in the Bermuda Triangle. By midseason management will wish they had. I see an 11-71 season for them! But then again I’m an eternal optimist. Does anyone really think that they’ll win… Read more »

I’d much rather see Hunter than Allen. I don’t see much benefit having a 41yr old ex-player return, but see loads of benefit in having Hunter in the roster. He has a pretty sweet stroke that no doubt would have improved over the summer and him seeing reps is the only way that stroke is going to be perfected.
