In the uncertainty of the coronavirus pandemic, Andrew Bogut stranded his game.
Bogut tweeted on Monday that when the NBL free agency begins operations on July 1, he will not re-sign with the Sydney Kings or join any other team.
He emphasized that his announcement was not a retirement notice.
“I decided not to sign with the Sydney Kings or any professional sports team for the time being,” Bogu wrote.
“This is by no means a retirement record, but only that it is currently difficult to make any specific decisions.
“The reason I decided to do this now is to give the Sydney Kings enough notice to take appropriate action when free agency is coming.”
The 35-year-old said that he was spending more time with his family during the lock-up period, and he would not consider anything else now.
Bogut did not rule out the possibility of returning to the Kings or other NBL teams, but Sydney will not be able to rely on his return, so he will have to find an alternative starting center.
