NBA Mock Draft: OKC Thunder Select Bogdan Bogdanovic from KK Partizan

SB Nation's NBA Network conducted a mock draft with bloggers from each team site making or trading "their" team's pick. We continue with the next pick in the 2014 NBA Mock Draft with Welcome to Loud City selecting Bogdan Bogdanovic.

NBA Mock Draft Pick #28, Bogdan Bogdanovic, Forward, KK Partizan

SB Nation's Thunder blog Welcome to Loud City explains the pick:

With the 29th Pick in the 2014 SB Nation NBA Mock Draft, the Oklahoma City Thunder select.... Bogdan Bogdanovic, from KK Partizan!

At this point in the draft, you're looking for role players. And Bogdanovic looks as cut out to be a three and D guy as anyone in the draft. His long 6'11" wingspan gives him a natural advantage over other defenders. Also, as noted above, it fits him perfectly into the Thunder's already knuckle-dragging roster. As the Thunder's roster stands right now, Sefolosha and Butler are likely to leave in free agency. So selecting an older European guy here is our perfect scenario. If he does come over, he's on a cheap contract and could probably contribute in a Sefolosha or Butler-like role right away. If he doesn't come over, it frees up money for us to spend this Summer.
