HoopsHype Andrew Bogut rumors

The way Bogut sees it, though, there's not much he can do about contact injuries. The only solution, well, that's not in Bogut's nature. As he told the San Francisco Gate: My body feels great. All of my injuries have been of the high-impact variety. The only thing I can do to change that is to be a puss and avoid contact at all costs. Then, it’s the other side of the ball when people say I’m a puss. I’ll take the good with the bad. I’ll still take charges and go for blocked shots. Every now and then, I’ll get a knock. The Score

Bogut wants to get more involved on offense, and Kerr showed him how it could be done within a new system that the rookie coach has said would include elements of the triangle. “He actually brought an iPad along to lunch and showed me actually clips of Luc Longley playing that similar type role, triangle-facilitator type of role and wanted me to be a bit more aggressive offensively and run through me a little more, so that’s always good to hear,” Bogut told the station. Longley, the first Australian to play in the NBA, was the center while Kerr played guard on the Chicago Bulls teams that won championships in 1996-98. Contra Costa Times

Bogut after a season in which he averaged 7.3 points and 10 rebounds tweeted he was “excited” to have Kerr come to visit, and the coach left a good impression. “Just a normal bloke, to be honest. He doesn’t think he’s higher or lower than anybody else. I’d say you can sit there and have beers and talk like you’ve known him for years,” Bogut said. Contra Costa Times

The Golden State Warriors centre is still battling to overcome a broken rib and ankle injury as he prepares for 11th season in the NBA. “It’s a tough one for me,” Bogut told The Daily Telegraph. “I could play but it would jeopardise my main goal which is playing in the Olympics (Brazil). Unfortunately to get there I have to give something up and it will be the worlds this year.” “My rib is not 100 per cent and I’m still not back into full training. I can’t see myself playing through the Worlds and a full NBA season.” Perth Now

New Warriors coach Steve Kerr will travel to Australia this week for a few days to visit with center Andrew Bogut. “I’m going to try to buy him a few drinks and dinner and get in his good books,” Bogut told SportSentral radio in Australia. “He’s coming out with his missus to see myself, and I think he’s catching up with Luc (Longley).” Longley, an assistant coach with the Australian national team, played with Kerr while with the Chicago Bulls.

Bogut said he had spoken over the phone with Steve Kerr and that the new Warriors coach also sent him an email about trying to fly out to Australia soon to meet with big man in person. “That’s always a good sign,” Bogut said. “He seems like a very knowledgeable guy. Obviously, he’s a very, very good commentator. You can tell he’s got a high IQ just by listening to his games. But obviously the question that everyone’s asking is the coaching experience thing. “But I don’t see him as having a huge ego or anything like that, so I think he’ll probably hire some assistants that can definitely help him carry the load in his first year as a coach, and I think he’ll be great for us.” Contra Costa Times

Bogut missed the back end of the Warriors’ losing NBA playoff series against Los Angeles Clippers after fracturing his rib in game four, a painful injury which left the dislodged bone on the verge of puncturing to his lungs. When asked by Downtown hosts Tommy Greer and Liam Santamaria, both ex-NBL players, about his thoughts on Smith, Bogut kept his response short and sweet. “He is just a wanker, pretty much,” Bogut said.
