According to NBA insider Kyle Neubeck of PHLY, the Philadelphia 76ers made exploratory trade calls on Atlanta Hawks forward Bogdan Bogdanovic.

However, Bogdanovic is not expected to be traded by the Hawks at the NBA trade deadline.

“The Sixers made exploratory calls on Atlanta’s Bogdan Bogdanovic, per a league source, but the Hawks are said to be asking for a heavy premium to even consider moving him, with Bogdanovic locked in on a team-friendly deal through 2025-26 (with a club option for 2026-27),” Neubeck wrote.

Bogdanovic is averaging 17.1 points, 3.1 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 1.3 steals and 0.2 blocks this season while shooting 43.3% from the field, 37.3% from beyond the arc and 90.7% from the free-throw line. He’s making $18.7 million.

The Hawks signed Bogdanovic to a four-year, $68 million extension last season. The veteran forward will make $17.3 million next season.

Bogdanovic has career averages of 14.5 points, 3.3 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.2 blocks with the Sacramento Kings and Hawks. He signed with Atlanta in 2020 as a restricted NBA free agent.

According to NBA insider Michael Scotto of HoopsHype, the Hawks don’t want to trade Bogdanovic. Even though Atlanta aims to trim future salaries, the front office wants to keep Bogdanovic, who is sixth in the NBA this season in 3-point field goals (151).
