Sacramento Kings are willing to give their Bogdan Bogdanovic a max contract extension this year, but that still might not be enough for the Serbian shooting guard to ink a new deal. 

Speaking with The Sacramento Bee on Tuesday, Bogdanovic said that the team has offered him a four-year, $51.4 million max extension, but he isn’t sure he will sign it.

“They did, but we will wait to see,” – said Bogdanovic. “Maybe we will sign tomorrow. Maybe we sign in a month. Who knows? We will see.”

The 27-year-old says he would like to stay with the franchise, but “doesn’t want to rush” into signing a deal.

“I would like to stay,”- he added. “Everyone knows that I love Sacramento. Everyone loves to be here. It’s a great group of guys. I’m happy right now, and I was happy all these years, but I don’t want to rush anything.”

Bogdan Bogdanovic is likely considering an option to play out this upcoming season and then become a restricted free agent next year. This would give him an opportunity to get an even bigger extension from Kings or some other team next summer. He is set to earn $9 million in 2019/20 as part of a three-year, $27 million deal he signed two years ago.

Bogdanovic played 70 games with Sacramento last season and averaged 14.1 points, 3.8 assists, and 3.5 rebounds.
