Your favorite Serbian appears to be on the move

According to sport24.gr, the Suns 27th overall selection in this year's draft Bogdan Bogdanovic is close to a deal with Turkish club Fenerbahce. Bogdanovic was previously playing for Paritzan in the Serbian League and is close to a contract buyout that would find him playing for Fenerbahce.

Partizan is in the middle of a young rebuild after some of their most successful time in club history, so a team like Fenerbahce who has reached the EuroLeague top 16 for four straight seasons will give Bogdanovic more opportunities to succeed. Bogdanovic's teammates at Fenerbahce will include former NBA draft picks like Andrew Goudelock (#46 overall by the Lakers in 2011) and Nemanja Bjelica( #35 overall by the Wizards in 2010).

Both the Suns and Bogdan have made it clear that he is going to stay overseas for at least 1-2 years so this is a good move for him.
