Andrew Bogut spent his season playing basketball for the Kings. No, not the Sacramento Kings -- the Sydney Kings.
Bogut signed to play with his native Australia's National Basketball League in 2018 -- that's where he's been named the league's MVP and the NBL's Best Defensive Player. Oh, he was also selected to the All NBL First Team along with leading the Kings to the NBL semi-finals.
This past season, Bogut averaged 11.4 points and a league-leading 11.6 rebounds per game.
Here's a clip of what he's been up to since returning down under:
Not bad, right?
Luckily, we have some hope he will continue showing off for us for the rest of the season thanks to a possible reunion with the Warriors.
The Kings' season has concluded and the contract he signed with the team in 2018 didn't have an out-clause preventing him from going back to the NBA. His agent is reportedly working on his letter of clearance from the Kings.
All great news and all signs pointing to seeing him once again in the Bay Area.
And in regard to how this move could impact the Warriors -- well, it's the perfect move for the team come postseason, as Monte Poole writes here.
Across 14 career seasons in the NBA, Bogut spent four with the Warriors where he averaged 6.3 points and 2.2 assists per game.
He's still in his top-playing shape, and he won't feel too much like a new kid on the first day of school upon his return.
See you soon, Bogut?
