Detroit Pistons coach Dwane Casey believes Bojan Bogdanovic deserves to be an All-Star in 2023. After the Utah Jazz sold Bogey to the Pistons for cash in September, Saben Lee and Kelly Olynyk, the nine-year veteran posted career-highs.

“I’ve coached a lot of all-star players: Nowitzki, DeRozan and Garnett,” Casey said. “Offensively he’s up front with these guys when it comes to kicking the ball… He’s as good a goalscorer as I know.”

According to multiple NBA betting sites, the Pistons have the third-lowest odds of winning the championship in 2023. With Cade Cunningham out for the season, several sportsbooks do not expect to make the playoffs this season.

Casey on Bojan Bogdanovic’s All-Star candidacy: “I’ve coached a lot of All-Star players — Nowitzki, DeRozan, Garnett — offensively, he’s right up there with those guys when it comes to scoring the ball…he is.” as good as any other goalscorer I know.”

In 31 starts this season, Bogdanovic is averaging career-highs of 21.3 points and 2.5 assists per game. In addition to 3.5 rebounds per game, the forward shoots 49.7% from the ground and 42.3% from 3-point range.

Bogdanovic ranks 18th in points (659), 12th in free throw percentage (90.1%), 17th in free throw percentage (145), 18th in true shooting percentage (64 .9%) and 14th in 3-point field goals (80). His 64.9% true shooting percentage is the best of his entire NBA career.

Pistons coach Dwane Casey says Bojan Bogdanovic is worthy of an All-Star selection this season

On December 11, in the Pistons’ 124-117 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers, the winger scored a season-high 38 points in 35 minutes. He finished 12 of 22 (54.5%) shots from the field and 6 of 12 (50%) off the arc.

Casey uses Bogdanovic in 25.5% of games with the nine-year veteran on the field. That stat is his highest usage percentage since his time with the Jazz in the 2019-20 season.

In October, the forward signed a two-year, $39.03 million contract extension with Detroit. He earns $19.55 million this season and $20 million next season.

While Bogdanovic isn’t great enough to start alongside Kevin Durant, Jayson Tatum, Joel Embiid and Giannis Antetokounmpo, he may be worth a reserve spot in the minds of some Pistons fans. The voters have to decide that.
