SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Utah Jazz announced that they have signed free agent forward Bojan Bogdanovic.

He is coming off a career year in 2018-19, where he averaged career bests in 18 points, 4.1 rebounds and 2 assists while shooting 49.7 percent from the field and 42 percent from downtown.

“We are very pleased to welcome Bojan and his family to our organization,” said Jazz Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations Dennis Lindsey. “His ability to play both ends of the floor in addition to his exceptional shooting will make him an integral contributor to our franchise and our postseason goals.”

He will wear No. 44 for the Jazz.

Bogdanovic is one of only eight players to hit over 150 three-pointers on better than 42 percent from beyond the arc last season.

Entering his sixth NBA season, Bogdanović has played for the Brooklyn Nets from 2014-17, Washington Wizards in 2017 and the Indiana Pacers from 2017-19 with career averages of 13.3 points on 46.3 percent from the field and 38.9 percent from downtown, 3.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 27.8 minutes per contest.

His professional career began in Europe where he gained vast experience with multiple teams, beginning with Zrinjski Mostar from 2004-05, Real Madrid from 2005-09, Murcia from 2008-09, from Cibona Zagreb from 2009-11 and Fenerbahce Ulker from 2011-14.
