Hawks sign Bogdan Bogdanovic to offer sheet


The Atlanta Hawks signed Sacramento restricted free agent forward Bogdan Bogdanovic to a four-year, $72 million deal on Sunday afternoon, giving the Kings 48 hours to match the offer.

If Sacramento opts not to match the deal for the 28-year old, Serbian swingman, the Hawks will add another big free agent addition after already signing Danilo Gallinari, Kris Dunn, Rajon Rondo and Solomon Hill to deals this offseason.

The deal from Atlanta includes a player option in year four and a 15 percent trade kicker.

Drafted in 2014, Bogdanovic left Serbia to play in the NBA in 2017 and averaged a career-high 15.1 points per game along with 3.4 assists and 3.4 rebounds while shooting 44 percent from the field.

Last week, the Kings agreed to a sign-and-trade for Bogdanovic with the Milwaukee Bucks but the deal fell apart, leaving Bogdanovic as a restricted free agent. The league is now investigating deal for potential tampering.
