Utah Jazz starting power forward: Bojan Bogdanovic

Predicted NBA 2K22 rating: 76

In NBA 2K21, Utah Jazz forward Bojan Bogdanovic was awarded a rating of 77, coming off a season where he averaged 20.2 points per game. In 2020-21, Bojan’s points per game average slipped to 17.0 points per game. Since the Bosnian they call Bogey is primarily a bucket-getter, we’re banking on a slippage in his points per game to be reflected in NBA 2K22.

Bogdanovic’s best asset, whether we’re talking about the real life or (barely) pixilated version, is his three-point shooting. His 39% shooting on 6.4 three-point attempts per night last season won’t do anything to impact what ought to be an A rating or higher on that score.

Bogdanovic is also a solid, reliable inside scorer and consistent free throw shooter, as evidenced by his efficient 58.8 True Shooting % (TS%) last season. Unfortunately for Bogey, his 2K rating is adversely impacted by his general lack of skills outside of scoring.

It’ll be difficult for the game’s raters to reward him many points for his passing vision, as he finished the 2020-21 season with a modest 1.9 assists per game. He doesn’t provide exceptional work on the boards either, pulling down 3.9 per game for the Utah Jazz over the 2020-21 NBA season.

While Bogdanovic is a solid defender, he is also an unspectacular one. He is likely to receive a rating in the perimeter defense department that hovers around a B: not a weakness by any means, but not the kind of resounding strength that could compensate for his lackluster ratings in other areas.

Bogdanovic is a somewhat one-dimensional player. The dimension he excels in (scoring) is probably the one you’d most want a player to, if they have to be one-dimensional. Still, a more well-rounded game would result in a higher rating for the Utah Jazz’s sharpshooting forward.
