Warriors' Steve Kerr welcomes idea of Andrew Bogut returning to NBA

Warriors' Steve Kerr welcomes idea of Andrew Bogut returning to NBA

The love Warriors fans showed for Andrew Bogut over the years was mutual, to say the least. 

So, could a reunion be in the future? Well ... another reunion? Maybe. Both parties involved are open to the idea. 

According to The Daily Telegraph, it's crossed their minds. 

“If something happens where I am healthy and feeling good at the end of the next NBL year, and they call again and want to do it, I’m all ears,” Bogut said in April.

“We loved having Bogues at the Warriors last year,” Kerr recently said. 

“I think it was really good for him to play in Sydney. Part of that was just being home."

After spending four seasons with the Warriors from 2012-16 -- and helping win an NBA championship in 2015 -- Bogut was brought back to the team in March and signed a contract for the remainder of the season after being out of the NBA since Jan. 2018. He was playing for the Sydney Kings of the National Basketball League where he was named MVP, averaging 11.4 points per game in 30 games. 

If Bogut's return to Golden State is a possibility, it would need to take a similar form of the mid-season acquisition as it did last season. As Warriors Reddit mentions, minimum contracts pro-rate through the season, so cap space is a factor.

“But yeah, (Bogues returning to the NBA) is something that I’d be into again," Kerr added.

Bogut is still doing great things. He recently led the Australian Boomers to a 98-94 victory over Team USA in the lead-up to the FIBA World Cup. This was the team's first-ever win over Team USA and Bogut played a key role, finishing with 16 points and nine rebounds.

Kerr, who is serving as the USA Basketball Men's National Team assistant coach, continued to gush over Bogut despite USA taking the loss.

“It is great to see moments like that for people that you care about and want to see succeed," Kerr said.

Andre Iguodala, Andrew Bogut jokingly strike deal with Sydney Kings

Andre Iguodala, Andrew Bogut jokingly strike deal with Sydney Kings

From the Bay Area to ... Sydney, Australia? 

That's what Andrew Bogut jokingly suggested to Andre Iguodala on Monday now that the two both are former Warriors. Iguodala could be up for the challenge, too. 

But there's a catch. 

Iguodala, an avid golf fan, only will leave the NBA for the NBL if Bogut can guarantee him a golf membership. It looks like this is a done deal, though. 

OK, back to reality. 

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Sunday night that the Warriors traded Iguodala, the 2015 NBA Finals MVP, to the Grizzlies. The move comes as a way to afford All-Star guard D'Angelo Russell, whom the team acquired from the Nets in a sign-and-trade with a four-year, $117 million contract for the former No. 2 overall draft pick. 

Iguodala might not be in Memphis for long, though. The veteran reportedly will be bought out by the Grizzlies and could join LeBron James and the Lakers.

The entire NBA is changing before our eyes. Iguodala has been on the move once in the past few days, and could be again.

A move to Sydney, however, won't happen.

Andrew Bogut jokes Andre Iguodala should ditch Grizzlies for Australia

Andre Iguodala no longer plays for the Warriors, who traded the 2015 NBA Finals MVP to the Grizzlies on Sunday night, a league source told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Andrew Bogut caught wind of the news because he tweeted a suggestion Iguodala's way:

You're probably already aware that Iguodala is big in the tech world and has made a lot of money from his investments. Additionally, the 35-year-old's new book -- "The Sixth Man" -- hit bookstores last week, and he's been promoting it on various platforms.

As for the first word of Bogut's tweet, Warriors fans won't want to see this happen.

The Grizzlies are in full rebuild mode, and it will be interesting to see if Iguodala -- who will make just below $17.2 million next season -- gives up several million in a buyout to be able to sign with a contender.

You probably never thought you would read that sentence, right?
