September 25, 2019 – Croatia captain and new Utah Jazz player Bojan Bogdanovic will be one of the NBA’s best players this season, according to ESPN. 

The reputable ESPN has ranked Croatia national team player Bojan Bogdanovic 48th in the list of the NBA’s best basketball players for the upcoming season.

For the ninth consecutive season, ESPN has ranked the best players in the NBA. Bogdanovic is among the players ESPN’s top 100, and the only Croatian basketball player named so far. The list has thus far ranked the best, from 100-31. 

The Croatian basketball player signed with the Utah Jazz this summer, and ESPN’s Kevin Pelton thinks he’ll fit in well with Rudy Gobert. 

“Bogdanovic could be a great fit in the Utah frontcourt next to Rudy Gobert. At 6-foot-8 and a listed 216 pounds, Bogdanovic is relatively similar in size to former Jazz small-ball 4 option Jae Crowder (6-foot-6, 235 pounds). Sliding him down from the wing to the power forward not only gives Bogdanovic a quickness advantage in most matchups, but also makes his shooting ability even more dangerous,” Pelton said for ESPN. 

Interestingly, Bogdanovic is ranked one place ahead of the Golden State Warriors’ Klay Thompson.
