It’s not much, but it’s progress.

According to Matt Logue of The Daily Telegraph, Bogut has moved back to the USA, and begun working out in readiness for a new deal.

Four NBA teams were mentioned as still having interest in signing the Boomers big man, with no team names being disclosed.

Bogut’s latest medical scans on his leg were shared with the various teams, as discussions progress on a new NBA contract. This new deal is unlikely to be a multi-year deal, as teams trend towards shorter commitments. This is especially true for Bogut, who is approaching his twilight as a basketball veteran, and is viewed as being prone to injuries.

The centre last played for the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2016/17 NBA season, but suffered a leg fracture in his debut game, and was waived subsequently. Prior to the injury, Bogut had averaged 3.0 points, 8.4 rebounds and 1.9 assists with the Dallas Mavericks.

He has since made progress on his rehab, and aims to return to the NBA for a few more years. Bogut has also previously mentioned that Tokyo 2020 would be an ideal milestone for his Boomers journey.

It's all about Banner 18. And our Aussies in the NBA. And selfless passes. And hard cuts. And defense. Andddd this is where I stop before I get too carried away. Really, it's all about this beautiful sport we know and love as basketball.
