Bogut quits Kings and future up in air
The NBL has lost another big name star for the time being after Andrew Bogut announced he wouldn't be signing on with the Sydney Kings or any professional team in the near future.
Bogut made it clear it was not a retirement announcement but has decided against playing in the near future.
“I have decided not to sign with the Sydney Kings, or any professional sporting team for that matter for the time being,” Bogut said on his Twitter account.
“With everything going on in the world the future does not look too clear, most notably in regards to sporting leagues worldwide.
“This by no means is a retirement note, but simply saying any concrete decisions are too hard to be made at this point in time.”
Bogut explained the timing behind his decision was to enable the Kings to move forward with their free agency plans.
“The reason I have decided to do this now is to give the Sydney Kings enough notice to act accordingly with free agency being around the corner,”
Bogut said the next step would be solely focusing on spending more time with his family.
