NBA news: Andrew Bogut’s tibia completely healing just in time for season

Andrew Bogut didn’t have the best season in 2016-17. His stint with the Dallas Mavericks was as unsuccessful as one could expect, and a consequent trade to the Philadelphia 76ers wasn’t much more than just a screen into a very short stint with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

But the 7-foot center still remains eager to what’s ahead and is now on the road back to the hardwood with his tibia CT scan showing complete healing, along with a radiology report that shows his leg is “solidly united” after suffering a fracture 58 seconds into his debut with the Cavs, agent David Bauman told Turner Sports’ David Aldridge.

Bogut can still be a serviceable center in the league due to his defensive awareness and his unselfish play at the offensive side of the ball. The Aussie center was recently linked to the Boston Celtics, Utah Jazz, Milwaukee Bucks, and San Antonio Spurs — all teams that have fellow Australian national team players in their roster.

The 32-year-old’s future in the league will be based primarily in his ability to keep healthy and produce in what’s likely to be a limited time on the court. As a 7-footer, he’s likely to be able to find opportunities with teams looking for size and rim protection off the bench.
