Something Fishy? NBA plans to investigate Bogdanovic’s sign-and-trade from Bucks
The NBA has opened an investigation regarding the supposed sign-and-trade deal between the Sacramento Kings and Milwaukee Bucks involving Bogdan Bogdanovic being landed in Milwaukee, according to Marc Stein of the New York Times.
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski first reported that Bogdanovic agreed to a sign-and-trade deal as soon as he becomes unrestricted free agent which would have sent him and Justin James to Milwaukee in exchange for Donte DiVincenzo, Ersan Ilyasova, and D.J. Wilson to Sacramento.
The Bucks were optimistic in adding the sharpshooting wing since the team were also able to a reliable veteran out of Jrue Holiday via massive trade.
However, sources said from The Sacramento Bee that “there was never a deal in the first place” since Bogdanovic did not even agree to the move.
The supposed swap was already considered null and void when the Bucks waived Ilyasova.
This isn’t a great sign for the Bucks who aims to surround great players sround franchise player Giannis Antetokounmpo.
