According to Jason Jones and Sam Amick of The Athletic, former Kings GM Vlade Divac was committed to re-signing Bogdan Bogdanovic even if it meant paying a salary in upwards of $18 million per year.
Bogdanovic will be a restricted free agent this offseason, and his status is the biggest issue that new general manager Monte McNair will have to address. While Divac, who stepped down when owner Vivek Ranadive suggested giving Joe Dumars final say on all personnel matters, was firmly committed to bringing Bogdanovic back McNair may not have the same mindset. What happens with Bogdanovic will have a significant impact on the Kings rotation, as the man he replaced in the starting lineup (Buddy Hield) made it known that he does not like coming off the bench.
