Inside Andrew Bogut’s signing with the Golden State Warriors, and how he thinks it could benefit the Sydney Kings
The Sydney Kings had a road trip in Cairns, ready for a December 20 game against the Taipans.
Andrew Bogut naturally had the game on his mind, and he ultimately led his team to its fifth straight win, but it was around that time that the inception of the big-man’s next career move began.
It was a message from a Golden State Warriors player — Bogut won’t say exactly who — that was the first of what would be several points of contact from the franchise he once helped to an NBA Championship.
“Hey. What’s your situation like over there?” Bogut remembers the player asking, not quoting him verbatim.
It was then when Warriors’ staff reached out to see what outs he had in his Kings contract, and if the centre could potentially join the team before the new year.
“I wouldn’t even consider it,” Bogut told foxsports.com.au.
“I wanna finish this thing off the right way. I’ve got too much invested in the Kings; I wanna try to win a championship here.”
Fast forward to March 1, 2019; a date Bogut kept a close eye on.
The buyout market would become more clear by then. Robin Lopez could have been an option, but he stayed with the Chicago Bulls, while Pau Gasol was quickly picked up by the Milwaukee Bucks.
“Look, if you guys sign Rob Lopez, or Pau; if you guys sign someone, no hard feelings, but I’m not gonna bail on my team,” Bogut remembers saying.
He added: “March 1 passed. They’d signed no-one. I thought it was a really good opportunity.”
