    Australian NBA star Andrew Bogut is coming home, joining the Sydney Kings to play in the NBL for the 2018-19 season.

    The Kings announced the signing via social media on Sunday night, with full details to come in a press release at 10am AEST on Monday morning.

    It’s massive news for the Kings who have now assembled what is bordering on the most talented roster in the league in a bid to return to finals.

    Bogut will join a side that already boasts the talent of former NBL MVPs Kevin Lisch (2012, 2016) and Jerome Randle (2017).

    Bogut was selected by the Milwaukee Bucks with the first pick of the 2005 NBA draft, the first Australian in NBA history to be taken at pick one.

    He won an NBA championship with the Golden State Warriors in 2015.

    More to come.

      Well done Sydney Kings. He is still only 33. Lets hope he stays injury free.

        You’d have to think nine and ten might have their eye on it Damo.

          Definitely think 10 will be interested to fill their summer nights without BBL but I’m worried that CBS don’t want to spend the cash.
          Apparently 9s purchase of the tennis is just a another loss maker, though not as bad as the cricket so they might baulk at a sport they’ve had no interest in before.

            CBS would understand basketball at least and know how to produce it.

      Perfect news for the NBL. Riding high off the momentum of a very successful post season this is a great get. A league must be shaking in their boots especially after the atrocious ratings and crowd figures from the weekend.
