Bogut recently came over from Australia.
Just a few weeks ago, Andrew Bogut was playing basketball in Sydney Australia for the NBL. Now, Bogut is about to make his debut with the Golden State Warriors. It's a pretty big change of pace but considering Bogut's NBA resume, it's not all that surprising. Bogut was picked up by the Warriors as he was seen as a player that could add some much needed defensive prowess to the squad. According to Sporting News, Bogut was originally supposed to make his debut later in the week, but it looks like he'll be inserted into the lineup much earlier because DeMarcus Cousins is having problems with his foot.
"I'm going to play him," Kerr told the Mercury News. "He's not playing 35 (minutes), but more than five."
When Bogut was first acquired by the team, Kerr explained to reporters that it won't take long for the big man to get adjusted to the squad.
"It just helps dramatically that we've been here before. We're basically running the same stuff that we ran when he was here," Kerr said. "He knows half of our team. As far as him fitting in, there's zero adjustment period. He's a brilliant basketball player in terms of his mind and his feel."
The Warriors are currently first in the Western Conference with a record of 47-21.
