    Andrew Bogut’s NBA journey has taken another surprise turn with the Los Angeles Lakers waiving the Australian centre.

    Bogut has struggled for court time since landing at the Lakers on the eve of the 2017-18 season and has averaged just 1.5 points, three rebounds and nine minutes in 24 games.

    Bogut, the NBA’s No.1 draft pick in 2005, won an NBA title with the Golden State Warriors but has became a journeyman over the past two years, with an unsuccessful stop last season at the Dallas Mavericks and an infamous 58-second stint at the Cleveland Cavaliers before breaking his leg.

      He is done in the NBA unfortunately. Will end up in Europe or back in the NBL if anyone can afford him.

        Spanish, or maybe the Chinese basketball league?

        Don’t know, he’s probably worth a final roster spot on a contender with back court bench scorers.

        For 5-10 minutes running the offence through the high post for flawed combo guards and then defending the post scorers that feature more on second units

      The Lakers have a lot more issues to worry about…11 – 27 and a 9 game losing streak , but the big guy has done Oz proud and has done it all in the US .

      You’d think a contender or mid level playoff team might need a bit of depth at centre – for instance, OKC could use a back up to Steven Adams.
