The Wizards traded for Nets swingman Bojan Bogdanovic on Wednesday, and it appears he could make his debut with the team Friday in Philadelphia.
Bogdanovic will be active tonight against the 76ers, according to Wizards Insider J. Michael. Wizards sideline reporter Chris Miller got this footage of him at shootaround at Wells Fargo Center.

Washington acquired Bogdanovic with the idea that he'd provide consistent scoring off the bench. Though he started 54 games for the Nets this season, he should be a happy camper tonight in any role with the Wizards.
He told the media Thursday that he was "cheering" for the trade to Washington because the team is playing so well and rising in the Eastern Conference standings.
Tonight, he'll get to show the Wizards and their fans what he brings to the table. Also interesting will be how head coach Scott Brooks decides to use Bogdanovic, a versatile player who could get minutes in multiple lineups. He could spell Otto Porter in place of Kelly Oubre, or play alongside one of them in a small-ball lineup.
Chris McCullough, the other player acquired from the Nets, will not be active tonight.
