Andrew Bogut is balling out in Australia
Last season, 7-foot big man Andrew Bogut spent four months with the Los Angeles Lakers before he was waived by the team mid-way through the campaign. As it turns out, the 33-year-old still has a lot of game left in him as he has been straight out balling in his native of Australia.
In a recent clip making its rounds in social media, Andrew Bogut is seen showing off his handles prior to driving through the lane to power home an emphatic dunk. Following the incredible play, he even stared down his defender for good measure.

After 13 colorful years in the NBA, Bogut now plays for the Sydney Kings in the Australian National Basketball League. He is obviously no longer the player he once was, but is still making quite an impact in the league.
The former Utah Utes standout is averaging an impressive 10.7-point, 11.2-rebound double-double, and is even doling out 5.0 assists per ballgame. Known as a formidable rim protector, Bogut is also currently leading the league in blocks with 3.2 swats per contest.
Bogut was the first overall pick in the 2005 NBA draft when the Milwaukee Bucks decided to gamble on the highly-promising big man. After seven years with the franchise, the Bucks traded him to the Golden State Warriors in 2012 in a blockbuster deal that involved Monta Ellis. Bogut was a vital part of the 2015 championship-winning Warriors side that defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The former All-Defensive team member boasts career averages of 9.8 points on 53.5 percent shooting, 8.7 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 0.6 steals, and 1.6 blocks in 28.4 MPG.
