Andrew Bogut

  1. Danny Ainge: Not worth tanking for Andrew Wiggins

    Oct 4, 2013, 1:25 PM EDT

    0515_wiggins_0

    Every active No. 1 pick, with the exception of Tim Duncan, who has been in the NBA at least six seasons – Greg Oden, Andrea Bargnani, Andrew Bogut, Dwight Howard, LeBron James, Kwame Brown, Kenyon Martin and Elton Brand –  has changed teams by age 28. It’s an era where teams must kowtow to top…

  2. Report: Stephen Curry leaving Nike for Under Armour endorsement deal

    Sep 27, 2013, 12:43 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Phoenix Suns

    Under Armour has been trying to break bigger into the NBA market for a while and they lined up some nice stars — Brandon Jennings, DeAndre Jordan — who fans know but who have never really broken into the big time. That has changed. Stephen Curry is leaving Nike for a new Under Armour deal,…

  3. Thursday And-1 Links: Jeremy Lamb as a young jeans model

    Sep 26, 2013, 8:23 PM EDT

    Jeremy Lamb

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. • This is a few months old, but did you know Thunder reserve Jeremy…

  4. Andre Iguodala thinks his skill set is underappreciated

    Sep 20, 2013, 1:27 PM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    In the bottom line definition of how much a player is worth to a team, Andre Iguodala is a $12.9 million a year player. However, there is no one definitive way to judge a player’s worth — not money, not points per game, not PER, not All-Star appearances, not rings. None of it alone defines…

  5. Andrew Bogut not worried about contract extension with Warriors

    Sep 14, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Andrew Bogut

    Andrew Bogut is entering the final season of his contract with the Warriors, and is feeling 100 percent healthy for the first time in over two years. How healthy Bogut can remain and how much he impacts the Warriors’ expected playoff run will go a long way in determining whether or not he’s back with…

  6. Warriors’ Andrew Bogut says he is “100 percent” healthy

    Sep 13, 2013, 7:15 PM EDT

    Andrew Bogut

    It’s going to be an interesting season in Golden State — there are expectations now. No sneaking up on anyone. They have a budding superstar in Stephen Curry, they went out and got a No. 2 guy and perimeter defender in Andre Iguodala, they have an All-Star in David Lee and good role players like…

  7. Golden State’s arena sign of things to come

    Sep 12, 2013, 4:53 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors - Game Six

    The suddenly-relevant Warriors have made big strides.  Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Andrew Bogut, & Co. have turned the Bay Area into a basketball hotbed – you could practically feel the crackle of energy in the air as they upset Denver in last year’s playoffs. The sky’s the limit for this team, and local investors are…

  8. Nobody is happier Iguodala is in Golden State than Klay Thompson

    Sep 12, 2013, 1:17 PM EDT

    Klay Thompson

    Klay Thompson is a pure shooter. He is out there to knock down jumpers, and while he can do a few other things on the court he gets paid to be one of the better sharpshooters in the league (although second best on his team). He’s not a lockdown defender. He works on that end,…

  9. Harrison Barnes is cool with coming off Warriors’ bench

    Sep 11, 2013, 10:09 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v San Antonio Spurs - Game Five

    Harrison Barnes started every game as a rookie for the Golden State Warriors last season. More importantly, he was on the court when the Warriors were finishing tight games last season. He found his footing and by the playoffs was a key contributor (16.1 points a game in the postseason) to a team that finally…

  10. Brandon Jennings says Pistons ‘should own the glass’ next season

    Sep 10, 2013, 10:01 PM EDT

    Brandon Jennings, Joe Dumars

    The Pistons have a lot of new pieces to fit together once training camp opens at the end of the month, but that’s going to be part of the fun. Detroit added Brandon Jennings and Josh Smith to an already talented group of young players, and put a new head coach in place in Maurice…

  11. Gary Payton picks Golden State to win Western Conference

    Sep 3, 2013, 3:59 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    Golden State is going to be a trendy pick for some this season. They have the shooting in Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, they have added Andre Iguodala to help them in transition and with perimeter defense, they have a double-double machine in David Lee coming back, they bring Harrison Barnes off the bench. Optimism…

  12. New Kings coach wants Cousins to be an improved passer

    Sep 2, 2013, 3:00 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    New Kings coach Mike Malone says of his offense what every coach says about their offense in the off-season — he wants to run. He wants to defend and be up tempo in transition. That may be true, but it’s pretty much like everyone running for president in the last 30 years saying they want…

  13. Warriors think they have a healthy Andrew Bogut this season

    Aug 30, 2013, 1:02 PM EDT

    Andrew Bogut

    Last season, Andrew Bogut missed 50 games. The season before that 54. The season before that 17. It’s been a long time since we’ve really seen a healthy Bogut for an extended period. But we also saw in the playoffs last season what a healthy Bogut means to Golden State — he is their defensive…

  14. Joe Dumars hopes Josh Smith-Greg Monroe-Andre Drummond frontcourt can take cues from Hawks and Grizzlies

    Aug 7, 2013, 6:12 PM EDT

    Josh Smith, Andre Drummond

    Which team has the best starting frontcourt in the NBA? Depending on how you value the top player compared to the depth of the trio, there are several contenders including: Nets (Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Brook Lopez) Bulls (Luol Deng, Carlos Boozer, Joakim Noah) Nuggets (Danilo Gallinari, Kenneth Faried, JaVale McGee) Warriors (Andre Iguodala, David…

  15. David Lee says Warriors not trying to trade him

    Aug 7, 2013, 12:34 PM EDT

    David Lee

    The Golden State Warriors have some salary challenges coming up in the next couple years. They are at a comfortable $66 million this season (over the cap but under the tax line) and next season Andrew Bogut comes off the books (at least at $14 million a year). However, Stephen Curry, David Lee and Andre…

  16. Ten NBA must-watch games this season

    Aug 6, 2013, 7:24 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    The NBA schedule is out and it’s a little like Christmas Day (unless you’re a beat reporter, then it’s explain to your wife how much you’ll be gone day, which is a lot less fun). Today is the day you can really start to taste the matchups that are coming. There are more good storylines…

  17. NBA post free agency Power Rankings: Who is closing in on Miami?

    Jul 29, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers' Paul and Griffin wait for play to resume as the Clippers trail the San Antonio Spurs during the second half of an NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    This summer saw Dwight Howard find a new home, the Clippers and Pacers add depth, and a few other teams making bold moves to get better (or, in some cases, worse intentionally). So how did all this impact the PBT Power Rankings? Glad you asked. Here is where things stand this summer (the number in…

  18. With Iguodala in fold, Harrison Barnes says he’s willing to come off bench

    Jul 23, 2013, 3:28 PM EDT

    Harrison Barnes

    Golden State made a good move getting Andre Iguodala — his perimeter defense is needed on that roster and his play in transition will suit what the Warriors do well. But it left a Harrison Barnes question. Iguodala will be the starter at the three (with Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, David Lee and Andrew Bogut),…

  19. Reports: Jermaine O’Neal, Toney Douglas to sign with Golden State

    Jul 9, 2013, 3:09 PM EDT

    Jermaine O'Neal

    Golden State looks formidable: Stephen Curry at the point, Klay Thompson at the two, Andre Iguodala and David Lee are your forwards. Andrew Bogut is the starting center and his health (and defense) could be the lynchpin for how far this Warriors team can go. However, they need depth — and they may have found…

  20. Report: Warriors to sign Marreese Speights to three-year deal

    Jul 8, 2013, 8:04 PM EDT

    Marreese Speights, Festus Ezeli

    The Warriors depleted their bench while upgrading their top six, which is a pretty good tradeoff. In the playoffs, where Golden State is and should now be focused, rotations shrink and a team’s best players matter more. But it doesn’t hurt to have depth, and this should help bolster the Warriors’ bench. Marc J. Spears…

  21. Report: Mavericks told they are out of Dwight Howard running

    Jul 5, 2013, 5:38 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    And then there were three… The Atlanta Hawks really never stood a chance to get Dwight Howard in free agency (he was only going home if Chris Paul went with him, and that chance died). Now the Dallas Mavericks have been told they are out of the race, something first reported by to Marc Stein…

  22. Warriors are reportedly trying to dump contracts to create enough cap space to sign Dwight Howard

    Jul 4, 2013, 7:37 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Dwight Howard reaches for a rebound next to Golden State Warriors Festus Ezeli during their NBA basketball game in Oakland

    When the report surfaced that the Golden State Warriors had made “a real impression” on Dwight Howard during their free agent meeting with the prized big man earlier this week, and had a legitimate chance of landing him, it honestly seemed laughable at best. The reason, of course, was that given the Warriors’ salary cap…

  23. Warriors in mix. Lakers pitch better than expected. Dwight race wide open.

    Jul 3, 2013, 3:48 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Los Angeles Lakers

    The Lakers meeting with Dwight Howard turned into the kind of clear the air honest talk about system and effort the team should have had in December, but in the end everybody felt better and on the same page. After his Golden State meeting Dwight Howard can see himself and see himself winning in the…

  24. It’s midnight, let the Dwight Howard madness begin

    Jul 1, 2013, 12:01 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Lakers

    Like a Disney fairy tale, when the clock struck midnight Dwight Howard has gotten what he always wanted, what he has earned the right to by playing out his contract: He is a free agent. As of this moment. For the next 48 hours — starting with the Rockets just after the official start of…

  25. Spurs backup guard Patty Mills out for Finals after foot surgery… who will waive the towels now?

    Jun 16, 2013, 7:11 PM EDT

    Spurs' Mills celebrates during play against the Heat during Game 3 of their NBA Finals basketball playoff in San Antonio

    This really doesn’t impact the Spurs on the court in the Finals, but it will sadden the basketball fans of Australia. Spurs reserve guard Patty Mills — best known in this series for his enthusiastic towel waving —  is out for the remainder of the postseason after having surgery on his foot, the team announced…
