There aren’t many who thought that Bojan Bogdanovic would raise his scoring numbers after going from Indiana to Utah.
After all, Bogdanovic’s 18.0 points per game last season was a career high at the age of 29, one that happened in large part because Bogdanovic took over Victor Oladipo’s No. 1 option spot once the latter went down with a season-ending knee injury. As Bogdanovic moved to Utah, he’d be sliding squarely under Donovan Mitchell in terms of usage. He’s played a majority of his games with Mike Conley out there, too, another ballhandling weapon. Joe Ingles is another guy who ends up running plays frequently.
