Knicks sign Bogdanovic and Burks to NBA deal with Pistons

The New York Knicks acquired Bojan Bogdanovic and Alec Burks in a deal with the NBA’s bottom team, the Detroit Pistons.

In exchange, the Knicks sent four players to Detroit: Ryan Arcidiacono, Malachi Flynn, Quentin Grimes and Frenchman Evan Fournier plus two second-round picks of the NBA Draft.

Croatian forward Bogdanovic, 34, joined the Pistons in 2022 after stints with Utah, Indiana, Washington and three years with the Brooklyn Nets.

Burks is another well-traveled veteran returning for a second stint with the Knicks after leaving for Detroit in July 2022.

“We are thrilled to add Bojan Bogdanovic to the Knicks family and welcome back Alec Burks. Bojan brings a tremendous amount of basketball experience to our team, both from the NBA and internationally,” said Knicks President Leon Rose .

“He is an elite scorer who has solidified himself as one of the best shooters in the NBA, and will complement our team.

“Alec has played an integral role throughout our 2020-21 playoff season, he understands and embraces the culture here and will bring a lot of value to our group.”
