Detroit Pistons extend Bogdanović

The Detroit Pistons have signed Bojan Bogdanović to a contract extension, the team announced Monday.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, it’s a two-year, $39.1 million extension.

In September, the Pistons acquired Bogdanović from the Utah Jazz, and he’s off to a good start.  In seven games this season, the eight-year veteran is averaging a team and career-high 22.7 points per game while shooting 53% from the field and 51% from 3-point range.

The 33-year-old has been one of the best players on this team, and the Pistons rewarded him with an extension.

Last season, the 6-7 Bogdanović averaged 18.1 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 30.9 minutes per game with the Jazz.  He averaged 18.4 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.9 assists over the previous three seasons in Utah while shooting 45% from the field and 40% from beyond the arc.

Drafted 31st overall in the 2011 NBA Draft, Bogdanović played professionally overseas before coming to the NBA in 2014. He began his professional career in Europe, most notably, with Real Madrid in Spain and Fenerbahce in Turkey.
