Goals for Atlanta Hawks sharp-shooter Bogdan Bogdanovic No. 2) Lead the league in 3-point percentage.

Without the mindset of being a starter, there is no telling how Bogdanovic will come out every night. He is one of the purest shooters in the world but apart from the 2020-21 season, he has not shown this to be the case during his time in the NBA.

He shot the ball at 37.4 percent from beyond the long line during his time with the Kings. Given how unhappy he was during his time with the franchise, this is an understandable number. He was used in different roles and was never going to go back to the franchise after his contract expired.

Last season was hopefully an aberration on Bogdanovic’s Hawks shooting record. The biggest problem for the sharp-shooter was there was a complete lack of consistency in playing personnel meaning that Bogdanovic was not able to get any rhythm.

Last season it was Luke Kennard who led the league in 3-point shooting percentage. He only shot the ball at 44.9 percent which is only a tiny bit higher than Bogdanovic of a season ago. If Bogdanovic shoots greater than 45.0 percent then the Hawks are a top team in the NBA, let alone the Eastern Conference.
