The Utah Jazz are really being aggressive in free agency. WHAT IS LIFE?

The Utah Jazz have gone from having “significant interest” in Bojan Bogdanovic to a “significant threat” to the Indiana Pacers pursuit of Bogdanovic. Tony Jones of the Athletic is reporting that the Indiana Pacers are finding themselves in a dog fight with the Utah Jazz for Bogdanovic.

Bojan Bogdanovic is now the apple of Utah’s eye or the stretch forward of their modern offense dreams. Dennis Lindsey said that the Utah Jazz were looking for snipers when he had his end of the season interview, and snipers he is hell bent on acquiring. The Utah Jazz targeted Mike Conley who has an over 40% 3 point percentage on catch and shoot threes, and—coincidentally—so does Bojan Bogdanovic.

Ben Dowsett pointed this out on twitter earlier today.

For those wondering if Bojan would be a good stretch four in lineups, well ... former Dunk writer Andy Bailey has you covered:

Bojan Bogdanovic would be absolutely amazing at that position. Now think how amazing he would be in Quin Snyder’s system. Imagine all the open threes that Jae Crowder had. Now imagine an above 40% three point shooter taking them. Yeah ... that’s pretty cool, huh?
