With Victor Oladipo going down to a season-ending knee injury in January, Bogdanovic emerged as the go-to player in Indiana. After averaging 14.3 points per game in 2017-2018, the 30-year-old jumped to 18.0 points per game in 2018-2019, which was tops on the team outside of Oladipo (who averaged 18.8 points per game in his 36 games of action). Bogdanovic did it by attempting nearly three more shots per game while increasing his field goal efficiency, finishing with a career-best 49.7 percent mark. He also shot a career-best 42.5 percent from three-point range on 4.8 attempts per game. His best scoring game came on Feb. 28, when he poured in 37 points against the Timberwolves on 13-of-22 shooting. It marked the second-highest scoring game of his career. Bogdanovic made moderate contributions outside of scoring, finishing with a career-high 4.1 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game. Defensively, he chipped in 0.9 steals per game. Bogdanovic tried to do even more on the offensive end in the playoffs, getting up to 15.8 shots per game after attempting 13.0 per game in the regular season. During the postseason, he averaged 18.0 points, 5.8 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 2.0 steals across 37.0 minutes. The Pacers were swept in the first round by the Celtics.2017

Early in the season on Nov. 10, Bogdanovic notched his season high for made three-point field goals with six in a win over the Chicago Bulls.

Bogdanovic started his third year in the NBA with the Nets and played in 55 of the team's first 56 games. He broke out early -- scoring 21 points and grabbing five rebounds on Opening Night against the Celtics. He'd continue his hot play, bagging 26 points and eight rebounds in the season's third game against Milwaukee. The rebuilding Nets later traded Bogdanovic, along with Chris McCullough, to the Wizards in exchange for a package of players and a first-round pick. Bogdanovic quickly set about building a strong first impression. In just his fourth game as a Wizard, Bogdanovic scored 27 points as Washington beat Toronto. On March 7, he scored 29 points and grabbed nine rebounds in a win over Phoenix, matching his season high in points. The Jazz qualified for the playoffs but fell to Boston in Round 2, and Bogdanovic suited up in all 13 contests. He averaged 8.8 points and 4.2 boards over 20.3 minutes in the postseason, with his most notable performance coming in Game 3 against the Celtics (19 points, 10 rebounds).2015

He hit his stride early, culminating in a 19-point, two-rebound effort against Memphis in just his third game of the season. Bogdanovic would reach new heights just two weeks later against Houston, scoring 22 points and grabbing nine rebounds as the Nets took down the Rockets by eight, their first win of the season. On Jan. 4 against Boston, Bogdanovic recorded his first career double-double, scoring 12 points and accounting for 12 rebounds in a close loss against the Celtics. On Feb. 5 against Sacramento, his 23 points helped the Nets to a close win at the Barclays Center. Bogdanovic closed out the year with his best career performance to date, a 29-point, six-rebound display of dominance against a DeMar DeRozan-led Toronto Raptors.2014
After leaving Turkish professional basketball behind for greener pastures in 2014, Bogdanovic immediately assumed an important role in the Brooklyn Nets' offense. He made 28 starts as a rookie, appeared in 78 games and averaged 9.0 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.2 three-pointers per game. Bogdanovic made his NBA debut on opening night, Oct. 29, and scored seven points while dishing two assists in a loss at Boston. He had his first 20-plus point game on Nov. 9, scoring 22 points and adding six rebounds in an eight-point win over Orlando. Four games later, he put up another 22-point effort against the Heat. His best game of the year came in the final game of the regular season -- a 28-point, three-rebound effort which helped the Nets take down the Magic by 13. Bogdanovic appeared in all six playoff games, with five starts, for the Nets in their opening-round series against the Hawks. He posted per-game averages of 10.3 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.7 assists before the Nets bowed out to the Hawks in six games.
