Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports that Bojan Bogdanovic and the Detroit Pistons have reached a two-year, $39.1 million contract agreement. Once a member of the Utah Jazz, the veteran forward is currently obligated to the Detroit Pistons until the 2024-25 season at a salary of $19.5 million.
It is also said that Pistons GM Troy Weaver acquired the 33-year-old with the hope of extending his contract. In acquiring Bogdanovic, the Pistons were aiming to strengthen their playoff chances for this year.
Their record in this regard is not promising at 1-5. However, Bogdanovic has lived up to his half of the deal by playing effectively and providing valuable developmental help.
