No Bogdanovic this year; now what?
By Mike Mazzeo
Now that Bojan Bogdanovic isn't coming to the States, what is Plan B for the Brooklyn Nets?
Let's take a look at two options to be the Nets' backup small forward:
Andrei Kirilenko: Could make sense. After all, Kirilenko used to play for CSKA Moscow, which was owned at the time by Mikhail Prokhorov. The Nets have been a rumored destination for Kirilenko for a while now. Still, he just opted out of the final year of his contract in Minnesota, worth $10 million, to go somewhere else. The most the Nets could offer AK47 is their entire taxpayer mini mid-level exception, which is three years and less than $10 million.
Metta World Peace: If he's amnestied by the Lakers, World Peace could be an option. He was a Knicks fan growing up, but bought a Nets jacket last season. He's a career 34.2 percent 3-point shooter and a tenacious defender, but how would his personality mesh in the locker room?
