Bogut sees his future away from Mavericks: report
Yahoo News - about 2 months
Australian center Andrew Bogut denied a report that he had requested a move from the Dallas Mavericks on Thursday but conceded his future might be with another NBA franchise next season. The Mavericks are languishing near the foot of the Western Conference standings at 11-24, raising questions about Bogut's future at the club. Bogut, 32, played on the NBA champion Golden State Warriors two seasons ago and again last season, when they went an NBA-record 73-9 in the regular season and came within one game of repeating as champions before falling to Cleveland in the NBA Finals.

With Bogut in reserve role, Mavs down Wizards
Yahoo News - about 2 months
The Mavericks' experiment with bringing Aussie big man Andrew Bogut off the bench paid off on Tuesday with a 113-105 NBA victory over the Washington Wizards in Dallas. The strategy meant that Bogut and veteran Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki were never on the floor at the same time, and while Dallas coach Rick Carlisle wasn't completely comfortable with the plan, there was no arguing with the result. "I don't like this," Carlisle admitted after the win.

Pizzagate Conspiracy Theorists Believe Andrew Bogut's Knee Injury Is A False Flag
Yahoo News - about 2 months
If you told me that an NBA center was buying in on the downright stupid Pizzagate scandal, I would’ve put my money on Spencer Hawes and his Obama toilet paper. Instead, it was Aussie Andrew Bogut who raised eyebrows when he tweeted in November that anyone involved with the supposed conspiracy deserved life in prison dot dot dot OR WORSE! In a since-deleted follow-up tweet, Bogut laughed at a person for mentioning that Snopes has already debunked this dumb, dumb, oh-so-dumb make-believe story that a pizzeria in Washington DC is the secret home of a pedolphile ring, and the operation was supposedly linked to Hillary Clinton through the emails of her former campaign chair John Podesta.

Don't Expect The Warriors' Rocky Stretch To Define Their Year
Huffington Post - 4 months
Draymond Green is the positionless, mercurial All-NBA selection for the Golden State Warriors. And in case you haven’t heard, he isn’t one to mince words. So when he tells reporters that “teams are trying to punk” the Warriors, he means it. But whether or not Green appreciates the fact, there’s a good chance that such treatment will only accelerate the team’s growth. That’s what happens when the NBA’s all-time winningest single-season team goes out and poaches Kevin Durant, creating an embarrassment of riches the rest of the world can only envy. During the Warriors’ 106-100 defeat of Phoenix last week, Suns guard Brandon Knight knocked over Stephen Curry after he made a 3-pointer. It was a blatant foul, but officials didn’t call it as such. Curry retaliated, shoving Knight into the stands and receiving a personal foul. In sports, one year can make all the difference, and the Golden State of today compared to last season is a perfect example. As Jerry West ― w ...

Australia ~almost~ beat the U.S. in basketball and Twitter had a meltdown
Yahoo News - 6 months
What. A. Game. It's not often you see Team USA get a run for its money in basketball, but Australia did its very best Wednesday night (Rio time) at the Olympics. SEE ALSO: Rio Olympics: What's up with all those empty seats? Australia, nicknamed the Boomers, led by five points at halftime. Ultimately, the team's lead slipped away in the final quarter to lose 98-88 to the U.S. in a game that threatened to be a major upset for the world's number one ranked team. That slim halftime lead gave Australian Twitter plenty of time to imagine "what if," though. Despite Australia being ranked 11th, with less than half the roster playing basketball in the NBA, it seems the U.S. knew they were in for a hard fight. "I mean we expected that, there are great players on that team," U.S. point guard Kyrie Irving, who was born in Australia and seriously considered representing the country, told Channel 7 after the match.  Less impressed however was Australian captain Andrew Bogut, who thought they could h ...

Rim protector JaVale McGee to be part of Warriors training camp
ABC News - 7 months
The Golden State Warriors are inviting veteran center JaVale McGee to training camp in a bid to address their need for a rim protector, according to league sources. Sources said the Warriors will sign McGee to a make-good contract for the chance to make their 15-man roster in October. In creating the needed salary-cap space to sign Kevin Durant away from the Oklahoma City Thunder, Golden State was forced to sacrifice three of its four centers: Andrew Bogut (traded to Dallas), Festus Ezeli (signed with Portland) and Marreese Speights (signed with the Los Angeles Clippers). The Warriors have since signed Zaza Pachulia and David West and re-signed Anderson Varejao, but they have decided to gamble on the athletic McGee in hopes they can unearth a rotation player and add a shot-blocker to the roster. McGee, 28, spent last season with the Mavericks after prior stints... ...

NBA-Simmons on top after starting Down Under

By Ian Ransom MELBOURNE, June 24 (Reuters) - Basketball has long struggled for attention in Australia's professional sports market but Ben Simmons' selection as the NBA's number one draft pick is another blow for a nation that punches well above its weight in the sport. Not long after Simmons was taken first in Friday's NBA draft by the Philadelphia 76ers, his Sudan-born compatriot Thon Maker was selected 10th by the Milwaukee Bucks. Guard Matthew Dellavedova won a championship ring with the Cleveland Cavaliers this season, while Melbourne-born center Andrew Bogut, the 2005 number one draft pick, grabbed one with the Golden State Warriors last year.

The three games were filled with plays and moments that will long be remembered by even the most casual of basketball fans: Kyrie Irving and LeBron James scoring 41 points apiece in Game 5; J.R. Smith tossing a no-look alley-oop pass to James in Game 6, followed soon thereafter by Stephen Curry tossing his mouthpiece at a fan and Ayesha Curry tossing conspiracy theories at the NBA; James blocking Andre Iguodala's layup attempt with two minutes to go in Game 7; and then, of course, an exhausted LeBron after the final buzzer had sounded in Game 7, alone on the ground with tears in his eyes.

Stephen Curry's Injury Will Sting Warriors, But It Isn't A Knockout Blow
Huffington Post - 10 months
Stephen Curry's injured knee sustained in Game 4 of Golden State's first-round series with Houston has sent shockwaves through the NBA Playoffs. The 28-year-old playmaking dynamo and reigning league MVP is expected to miss two weeks with a Grade 1 MCL sprain. Are the record-breaking Warriors suddenly vulnerable? Is this the end for the Dubs' repeat chances? Can Curry -- who is about to earn his second straight MVP -- rehab in time for the next round?  As Aaron Rodgers said in his infamous press conference, "relax." Curry is undoubtably great, but the beauty of Golden State's offensive scheme is that it doesn't change when he leaves the floor. Spacing, ball movement, dribble penetration remain paramount -- all three elements lead to the 3-pointer. And all three elements still create excellent offense. If any roster was designed to handle such a devastating injury, it's this one. What makes the Warriors lethal is their capacity to play positionless basketball, including the ...

He declared for the NBA draft, and became the first Australian to be the NBA's first overall pick. In his first year with the Bucks, Bogut was named to the NBA All-Rookie First Team in 2006. He earned all-league honors in 2010 after averaging a career-high 15.9 points along with 10.2 rebounds per game. He missed most of 2011–12 with an ankle injury, when he was traded to Golden State. After winning the NBA Finals in 2015, Bogut helped the Warriors win an NBA-record 73 games in 2015–16.

Bogut grew up playing Australian rules football and tennis in addition to basketball. As a child, he patterned his basketball game after Toni Kukoč, a Croatian NBA player who spent the majority of the 1990s playing for the Chicago Bulls. As a 15-year-old, he was cut from the Victoria junior state representative team. In response to this setback, Bogut began to improve his game with the help of Siniša Marković, a professional basketballer from Yugoslavia.

Following the breakdown in contract negotiations over the insurance money, Bogut stated he would like to join the Kings coaching staff in a bid not only to help the club, but help raise the NBL's profile. This, however, did not eventuate and he later returned to the Bucks following the conclusion of the lockout.
  • 2010

    More Details Hide Details On April 3, 2010, near the end of a breakout season, Bogut suffered a major injury.
