Bogdan Bogdanovic has seen his name being dropped in trade rumors recently. The Los Angeles Lakers and the Charlotte Hornets are two teams that have been reported to be interested in potentially acquiring the Serbian guard before Thursday’s deadline.
After he scored 23 points in a win over the Minnesota Timberwolves, Bogdanovic made it clear that he’d prefer to remain where he is for various reasons. “Obviously, I would like to stay,” he said to NBC Sports California. “I’m settled here. I have a house, my sister’s in college, so it’s easier.”
Bogdanovic mentioned that he realizes that in the trade period, anything can happen.
“But, you have to be ready for everything, especially after I saw in my first year, what was going on. First year, when you come through it [the deadline], you always know that date is coming and it could be you. You just have to be ready and work on your game and be mentally prepared – for everything,” Bogdanovic said.
He also answered “Yes” when he was asked if he’ll still be with the Kings after the deadline expires.
Bogdanovic averages 14.6 points, 3.3 assists and 3.1 rebounds in 28.1 minutes over 38 games this season.
