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 for their 2018-19 season, where he was just 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 league semi-finals.
This season with the Kings, 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?
With it being reported that Bogut will likely join the Warriors, it looks like he'll continue showing off for us for the rest of the season.
The Sydney Kings' season has concluded and the contract he signed with the team 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 signs are 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 NBC Sports Bay Area's Warriors Insider 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 was a member of the 2014-15 championship squad and the 2015-16 team that went 73-9.
He still appears to be 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.
