(by Borko Popic for NBADraft.net in 2009)
He is a competitor, battles at all times to establish post position and is very active His motor is excellent and he shows it by running the floor as well as anyone in the country Around the basket he is very active and he knows how to move without the ball to get to open spaces Has been the beneficiary of some great passes, but a lot of it has to do with his ability to read the action as well as being able to catch pretty much any pass that is thrown his way.
His repertoire in the post is limited, as a result he does not demand much attention from defenses Struggles getting his shot of against bigger defenders.

Bogic is a typical, high-intelligent Serbian Point Guard. He possess great speed and lateral movement, which makes him lethal in the offensive transition game. He mastered the Pick and Roll game, in which he barely makes a mistake when playing it. He has a pass-first mentality and always sees the floor and his teammates well. His playing style is very fluid, as he always keeps the ball moving, instead of dribbling around. He's not just a typical playmaker, but he can be deadly when he attacks the basket as well. His mindset is always to leave his heart on the court for his team and his teammates, without looking at his own statistics. An overall teamplayer, with a great attitude, which makes it a pleasure for everyone to play with him.
