Andrew Bogut could be back on the NBA court sooner than later. At least, that’s what his agent David Bauman indicates. Speaking to TNT’s David Aldridge, Bauman said that “CT on Bogut’s tibia shows complete healing“, and that “radiology report shows leg is solidly united“. Bogut suffered a fractured tibia after colliding with a Miami Heat player in his debut for Cleveland Cavaliers on March 6, 2017.

Aldridge also noted that Bogut will return to the United States and hopes to land a contract, with multiple teams eyeing him as an addition to their squad. According to the Bleacher Report, Boston Celtics have shown great interest in the 32 years old center. San Antonio Spurs, Milwaukee Bucks, and Utah Jazz supposedly also expressed interest in signing the player. Bogut certainly thinks he can still provide value for the team that decides to take him.

If you look at a lot of the teams with stretch fives, a lot of them have rebounding issues generally” – said Bogut while speaking for and Steve Aschburner. “I know it’s not a max market for big guys, but you can still make a decent living from doing the little things. I like to think I do a lot of good things that go unnoticed as well. Teams I’ve played for, teams that have played against me know the value I have.

Andrew Bogut entered the NBA after Milwaukee Bucks drafted him with the first overall pick in 2005 NBA draft. Although he was a solid performer for the Bucks, being named to the NBA All-Rookie First Team, he only led the team to one playoff appearance during 7 seasons. After being traded to the Golden State Warriors in 2012, Bogut went to have a prominent role helping the team to win the NBA title in 2015 and reach the NBA Finals in 2016. The Warriors traded Bogut to the Dallas Mavericks in order to free up salary cap for Kevin Durant. After playing 26 games for the Mavericks, he was traded to the Philadelphia 76ers, who waived him. As a free agent, Bogut signed with the Cleveland Cavaliers, but the Cavs also waived him after he got injured.
