Those other teams were again blown away by Bogdanovic on Monday night, as he scored 33 points on a truly wild 73.3% field goal percentage and an astonishing 85.7% from the three-point line.
Currently, Detroit’s asking price for Bogdanovic is an unprotected first-round draft pick.
After numerous amazing games like the one he had on Monday, are you surprised they are demanding so much for the forward?
Betting On Bogdanovic
Multiple teams have been linked to a possible trade for Bogdanovic.
Most notably, the Los Angeles Lakers have been eyeing him for a while.
But first-round picks are pretty big deals and few teams are willing to part with them.
The Lakers have notoriously refused to let go of their draft picks.
So, it remains to be seen if they will finally give one up in order to land Bogdanovic.
His trade value has never been higher as he is putting up some of the best numbers of his career.
He is also playing for a team that is lost in the wilderness of the Eastern Conference and in serious need of a major rebuild.
Will they hold onto Bogdanovic and keep him as a pivotal part of their future?
Or will they strike while the iron is hot and trade him away for a huge return?
As the trade deadline gets closer, you can bet that Bogdanovic will be attached to many trade rumors.
That is definitely true if he keeps having games like the one he had on Monday night.
