Bogut in the NBL? Don’t rule it out!


Could Australian basketball star Andrew Bogut be headed home? It is a chance according to Daily Telegraph basketball writer Matt Logue.

The Sydney Kings have long held interest in bringing the 33-year-old back to the NBL and following his release from the Los Angeles Lakers, have rekindled their interest.

Logue, who broke the story, told SEN Drive that Kings Managing Director Jeff Van Groningen has made contact with Bogut’s Australian-based agent, Bruce Kaider.

“Their interest has been long-running and dates back a number of years,” Logue said.

“But it will be for once Andrew is finished with his NBA career.”

Sydney, who currently sit at the foot of the NBL table with just five wins from 20 matches, looked set to sign the seven-footer during the 2011-12 season until an unsettled insurance cost the club his signature.

Despite being Melbourne born and bred, Bogut supported the Kings as a youngster but has expressed a desire to join a NBA club who is in contention to win a championship.

"There are a host of clubs incuding the (Milwaukee) Bucks, who drafted Bogut (with the No.1 pick) a number of years ago. There is a possibilty he could return to the Bucks and then retire once he's done with that," Logue said.
