Coming off a 21-win season, Bojan Bogdanovic sees no reason why the Brooklyn Nets can’t qualify for the Playoffs in 2016-17.
According to Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, BK has the worst odds in the NBA of winning the title (500-1).

Bogdanovic helped lead Croatia to a surprise run to the quarterfinals of the Rio Olympics this summer.
Per the NY Post:
“I think we can,” Bogdanovic said. “They can write what they want. … But we’re going to work hard to give it our best. When we get in a game, we have a chance to beat anybody. It’s going to be tough, but if we play like we practice, we have a chance.”
His 25.3 points per game in Rio were the best by any Olympian in 20 years, and his 19.2 player efficiency rating was fourth this summer behind only Kevin Durant, Pau Gasol and Lithuania’s Mantas Kalnietis.
Bogdanovic’s 3-point shooting spiked from 32 percent to 42 when Tony Brown’s motion offense replaced Lionel Hollins’ plodding style with the Nets. His scoring vaulted from 10.4 ppg to 15.2 after Joe Johnson’s departure, improvement he’s confident will continue. […] “I hope so. Last year when Joe left, I got more minutes, started every game. … and stretched the floor,’’ Bogdanovic said. “I hope this season we’re going to play much better, and I play at the same level I finished last year.”
