Bojan Bogdanovic failed at Real Madrid but earned $84.5 million in the NBA | Israel today


The Croatian star, who will move to the Detroit Pistons this season, came to Real Madrid at the age of 16 but was left after not impressing • In eight seasons in the best league in the world, he became a leading player, earning a huge amount of money

The 33-year-old Bojan Bogdanovic is considered one of the best European basketball players in the world today.

In the last Eurobasket he was the star of Croatia, and although he showed good ability - his team was already eliminated in the round of 16 after a loss to Finland.

The Croatian forward who played for the NBA's Utah Jazz in recent years and impressed the media, recently went through a surprising trade to the Detroit Pistons and will play alongside the promising prospects Cade Cunningham (first pick in the 2021 draft) and Jayden Ivey (fifth pick in the 2022 draft).

Utah, which he left, is undergoing a rebuilding process - and last summer gave up its best stars including the French Rudy Gober and Donovan Mitchell.

The failure of Real Madrid

when he was 16 years old and one of the biggest promises of European basketball, the Croatian signed with Real Madrid.

He was loaned to teams in Spain but failed to provide receipts, in 2007 he returned to the Blancos, and after only three appearances in the Spanish league, and one single game in the Euroleague - Real Madrid parted with him in great disappointment.

Later, Bogdanovic also played for Civona Zagreb and Fenerbahce from where he went to the best league in the world.

In total, in his seven seasons in the NBA with the Brooklyn Nets, Washington Wizards, Indiana Pacers and Utah Jazz, the Croatian averaged 15 points and almost four rebounds, he earned a total of 84.5 million dollars - and the hand is still tilted.

Real Madrid probably realize today what they missed.
