Andrew Bogut puts re-signing on hold

Andrew Bogut has announced he has decided not to re-sign with the Sydney Kings or any of his NBL rivals.

The 35-year-old released a lengthy statement on Monday to reveal he won't be signing any contracts any time soon as a result of the deep uncertainty across the global basketball industry in recent months.

Interesting, kings will have a totally different look about them if all those who are looking elsewhere do leave.

You would think they need an import 1 and 5 now.

That reads like a holding pattern doesn't it?

Doesn't seem like much to read into, waiting to see what happens until closer to the NBL season before making a decision.

Money probably isn't the #1 driver, so it's probably the love of the game plus winning one in the NBL that are the motivators and seeing if the body allows.

Once could suggest he has already climbed the highest mountain by winning at GSW so he doesn't have anything more to prove.

If I was Bogut I would not bother unless the Kings bring in some top flight talent like a Ingles, Broekoff or Delly, plus bring back Cooks and get me Tate plus an import that gets paid more than Bryce Cotton and shoots better than 1-17 in the playoffs.

If the NBL returns with crowds etc, and his body recovers well during this break I could see him returning to the Kings

Lovebroker wants:
Bogut
Tate
Cooks
Ingles
Cotton

In addition to the existing contracted players, who include Lisch and Newley I presume?

Yep, Hawks are the problem.

Talent wasn't the issue at Sydney last season, it was lack of heart.

Assuming it goes ahead next year, Bogut wants an Olympic Medal. Need's to plan on getting his body right for that.
I think last season was IT for the NBL. Rightly or wrongly, he should have won with Sydney. Flakey coaching let him down.

Would love to have seen what Neilsen could have done with Sydney.

Casper ware quite obviously carrying an injury, sick or otherwise not right in the GF. Nobody's game goes backwards that much without a good reason.

Was he also injured for the entire regular season except the games against Melbourne?

No. Ware was physically fine, his flopping game was still elite, when he hit stationary screens he flew like he got hit by a Linebacker.

Cook and Tate were not much better than Ware in the GF, Kay killed them at both ends. Lack of coaching adjustments didn't help either.

To be honest had enough of Bogut, yep he is talented but all this all about me is tiring.

Reckon he would not have played anyway, this has given him the space to be able step back make the decision and once again make it about him.

The point is, Ware's reactions to being screened was not proportionate to the "contact" he received.

If he doesn't see Plumlee for example and the contact isn’t down the middle of the torso but on Ware’s side the reaction is perfectly fair as physics would suggest the player will spin. Just saying! Smh

Its ironic this announcement comes on the same day Cotton has committed to remaining in the league. Cotton continuously torched him because he couldn't defend him outside of the key. I guess he doesn't want to be embarrassed again. Just sayin

Lol so true! I still wouldn't mind seeing him coming off the bench for next years Olympics team. He would still be a valuable asset if his body holds up.

Will be interesting to see what team the Kings put out this season without Ware, Bogut & Cooks.

Ware, Bogut and cook could be back though but hopefully Weaver got a point guard and five man willing to play at base import wages and younger as well. Taylor finished the season very well and could be an option, still not convinced on cook either being that big a loss, certainly not compared to the loss of Kay at Perth.

If Ware is going to put up those playoff numbers, please let him go back to Sydney.

I see the Olympics as the only thing driving Bogut at the moment. And that's why the consideration of his body, and declaration that this is not retirement.

I couldn't blame him for taking some time off. He actually overdid it last year with the NBL season, then NBA stint, then world cup, to follow that immediately with the NBL. I mean that was a 34 year old man with a battle-weary frame.

I think he has it in him to give the Olympics one last push, and I'd like to see him on that team. We still don't have a better option than him in the back up big spot.

You wouldn't pick him if he sits out this season though. I think now he's likely turned his back on the NBL he will be hoping for an NBA contract before retiring at the Olympics next year.

Umm, yeah, if he was relatively healthy and able to get through the warm-up games, you would. Competitive leader, who despite his mouth, would give his all for Australia.

So you think a guy whose body couldn't hack an NBL season, wants to return to the pace of the NBA?

The team gets picked before any warm up games happen and if he doesn't play anywhere this season I wouldn't pick a then 36 year old centre who looked like he was out on his feet the previous season.

Where he would sit on the end of the bench not playing thus no risk of getting injured prior to the Olympics whilst still getting paid more money than he could get anywhere else, yes I think he would like that very much.

I thought I saw recently that's he's open to joining a contender in NBA next year in final months like he did last year. Can see him doing that and resting body having NBL off, pay would be similar for mainly sitting on bench.

Chances of Bogut playing the Olympics are significantly greater than him playing in the NBA.

Bogut got paid a lot of money to win championships for Sydney.
He came close.
Had he succeeded, it would have been a fitting cap to his great pro-career.

Does he really want to take a massive pay-cut, to struggle through a season, with a team unlikely to win

The issue wasn't 'hacking an NBL season' it was that he played an NBL season, into an NBA playoff run, into a World Cup campaign into an NBL season. That was too much for his body.
