Will Bogut return to the Kings after his stint with GSW?

Will he be back with the Kings after his stint with the Golden State Warriors?

Well, yes. He's contracted to without an out clause.

If he's not getting court time then the only place he can get injured is the practice court

Could be wrong but I suspect most of the NBA training sessions aren't super high intensity. Guys like Durant and Curry would do plenty of skill work, video reviews etc but wouldn't go too hard in the scrimmages cos they'd wanna preserve their bodies.

In fairness it only took him a few seconds to get injured at the Cavs

That's not true. To play on any other team you have to get a clearance. Therefore his current contract has expired.
Every chance he will come back however as he has a chance to buy into the very successful Kings program.

^ That's just not true. Just like how other NBL players go overseas to Europe while still under NBL contract, Bogut is doing the same, just with the NBA. His contract is still intact.

Exactly you have to get a claerence from your last club. Most contracts are twelve months, clubs agree to release the player.

You may be right LV.

Quite different philosophy to past history making teams, especially when you read/hear the stories about the Chicago Bulls championship era where the Bulls players are on record as saying training sessions were sometimes more brutal and competitive then games they played against opposition teams.

Yes and when cleared they are no longer an active player for that team. Technically once they leave the NBA club now (IE. Bogut) they are a free agent and would to re sign a ne contract.

This is a loaner Bogut's under contract to the Kings next season and the NBL have already said he will be back. I hardly think Bogut's going to risk jeopardising a 10% ownership stake in the Kings for a few months contract in the NBA.

There aren't player loans in basketball. He would have to opt out of his deal.

And that few months would net him around $600k, definitely more than the 10% of the Kings.

All of that said, there's no reason he wouldn't go back to the Kings next season.

No he doesn't have to opt out of anything, Finn Delany's still got another year to go on his contract at NZ and he's currently playing in Serbia.

No, no, people don't understand, Bogut is so special that the rules don't apply to him.
Sure, every post season several contracted NBL players go and play elsewhere, but the rules for mere mortals don't apply to him.

Personally, I hope he doesn't come back and is lured away to Melbourne. That way he can destroy their club, and we can use the money on players that actually want to play. Two more decent imports would be a nice start.

This is the perfect scenerio for him. Stay in shape but don't overwork the body by playing NBL. Then join an NBA team for the stretch run and playoffs. He doesn't want the grind of an 82 game regular season at this point of his career.

Maybe he likes the idea of ownership, go to the nba get a few more dollars and buy more than 10%.

Has another year on contract.
Is just like any other player picking up an NBL offseason gig but NBA instead of Europe or NZBL.

Is Bogut in the mix for World Cup team, haven't heard much about it recently?

Watched his interview. Said, a number of times that he would be returning. Thought he said mostly the right things but I would have liked to hear him credit the NBL a little and how the NBL season had kept him match-fit (enough) for their (GSW's) purposes. Also kept him in the local and international limelight with his season.
Had he not been playing the NBL season, even if he was still in the USA, hanging 'round the NBA, would he have got the call?

Its not really something the NBL deserves credit for.

Not direct credit, but I think robt was meaning more that as a benefit of being able to play in a decent league that wouldn't punish the body is better than just waiting around in the USA waiting for a gig... This could then be spun to other ex-NBA top level players that might be considering playing somewhere overseas, not wanting to play G League, as a "look, GSW sent someone here during the season and now he's got a playoff gig" etc...

"Better than sitting around your apartment in LA" isn't the worst slogan the NBL would have used...

Andrew Bogut returns to NBA for short term contract

Sydney Kings star and NBL MVP Andrew Bogut will return to the Golden State Warriors on a short term contract for the remainder of the current NBA season.

This is a very exciting opportunity for both Andrew and the Kings, who will be keenly supporting him throughout his time in Oakland.

Kings fans can rest assured, Andrew will be returning to Sydney and the purple and gold faithful ready to go for the 2019-20 NBL season.

The opportunity is a testament to both the hard work that Andrew has continued to put in throughout the NBL season, but also the quality of the current NBL competition.

Thank you Wookie. That is what I meant. As I can ramble on, I try to be short.

Just ramble on mate, you're damned if you do and you're damned if you don't in here, might as well just get it all out :D

I think even a few journos took this approach as well, asking Bogues about the potential for bigger name imports to come down here instead of say China or somewhere... I know we don't have the big money like China, but we should definitely have a better reputation for the potential to get (back) to the NBA...
