Free agent Bojan Bogdanovic has agreed to a two-year, $21M deal with the Indiana Pacers, league source tells ESPN.

Bogdanovic spent last year with the Brooklyn Nets and the Washington Wizards. His ability to put the ball in the basket in a variety of ways made him a great asset to both of those teams, and now he will be an excellent asset to the Indiana Pacers as well. After Washington renounced his qualifying offer, it was evident that he would not be a part of their future plans.
Indiana was surprisingly able to get him at a relatively small price tag, which is going to leave D.C. fans wondering why they could not ink a similar deal for the Croatian swingman — considering they gave up a first-round pick to only keep him around for a few months.
After trading away Paul George to the Oklahoma City Thunder, Indiana was definitely in need of some scoring punch. Bogdanovic is clearly no Paul George, but he will definitely help keep Indiana relevant in a sub-par Eastern Conference.
