On Friday morning, Warriors GM Bob Myers shed light on the process of reuniting with Bogut during an appearance on 95.7 The Game. “Andrew, because he’s loyal and because it was partly his team in Australia, was saying, ‘Look, I’m not gonna leave now. I can’t do that to my teammates and my organization. But if you’re still interested when my season is over…’ And Bogut didn’t bail on his team. He waited until they were out of the playoffs. He said, ‘Worst case, early March I’m done. If you’re still interested, let me know.’ So that’s how that thing started. And it was quiet because so many things can change. If a wing had gotten hurt, maybe we would have had to go wing.”
“The best part of the story is that Andrew wanted to come back,” Myers explained. “In this business. there’s so much opportunity for people to not get along. Relationships are often broken and not repaired. And so to sustain a relationship with a guy that we actually had to trade … he could have not come back. If he had any negative feelings about us, he’s just gonna say, ‘Hey, I’m flattered. I’m not coming.’ Or not even picked up the phone.”
The Warriors also expect Bogut to be a big help on defense. Initially, Bogut looked rusty in that area. Spurs forward LaMarcus Aldridge opened the game draining a 3 over Bogut. Then, Spurs forward DeMar DeRozan sank a jumper over him. San Antonio tried to target Bogut nearly the same way other teams have done to Cousins. After admittedly catching his wind in the first quarter, Bogut soon became a defensive asset once again. The most notable example: Bogut and Green conversed with each other frequently on rotations.
