Is the dynasty over?

Andrew Bogut said that he is open to returning to the NBA later this season if the right opportunity shows up.
Bogut played in Australia last year and then joined the Warriors for the end of the regular season and the playoffs. "An opportunity to try and win a championship will be the main thing in the NBA. But I wouldn't go back to the NBA just to play in the NBA, it's more about trying to win a title and somewhere where I feel comfortable for the family”, said the veteran big. The buyout market and potential injuries will determine a lot, but it seems unlikely that we see Bogut return to the NBA any time soon.

Patty Mills went off in the fourth quarter and finished with 30 points as Australia beat USA 98-94.
Although it was only an exhibition, it was still a huge moment for Mills and the Australian team in front of a huge crowd as they handed the US team their first loss since 2006. Mills was serenaded with MVP chants as Joe Ingles also played well with 15 points on 6-of-12 shooting with four rebounds and seven assists while Andrew Bogut came off the bench for 16 points, nine rebounds and four assists in 20 minutes, shooting 7-of-8 from the field.

Andrew Bogut will draw the start on Friday for the Warriors in place of an injured Kevin Durant, who is expected to miss Games 6 and 7 due to a right calf strain.
Bogut may be starting but he won’t be able to pile on that much stats given the way both teams have opted to go “ultra-small” in spots during this series. He’s going to be a warm body to face up against Clint Capela and defend against the pick and roll tonight.

Andrew Bogut plans on returning to the Sydney Kings of the NBL for the 2019-20 season, regardless of what happens the rest of the way during the NBA playoffs.
Bogut agreed to a two-year pact with the Kings last April and he intends to honor that agreement and return to his native Australia, even though other NBA teams may be interested in his services. “The be all and end all is that I gave my word to the Kings,” Bogut said, via the NBL. “Someone outside of the Warriors could offer me a deal that would be pretty lucrative and a decent one-year deal. But I’m sold and locked in on coming to the Sydney Kings again to try and better what we did last season.” Bogut’s time in Australia has made wonders as he lost the extra weight and looks to be in tremendous shape for his age while averaging 4.7 points, 8.0 boards, 2.7 dimes and 1.0 blocked shots in 14.7 minutes against the Clippers. The Warriors will continue to rely on him and Kevon Looney with DeMarcus Cousins expected to remain sidelined throughout the playoffs.

Andrew Bogut revealed that he would return to play in Australia next season after his playoff run with the Warriors.
Bogut's return to Golden State was never expected to be a long reunion. He wasn't on the fantasy radar for drafts next season and now he won't even be an option. He will still play a large role for Golden State in these playoffs in the wake of DeMarcus Cousins' injury.

Andrew Bogut led the Warriors in rebounding in Game 3 with 14 boards to go with eight points on 4-of-5 shooting with five dimes, a steal and a block on Thursday.
Bogut looked sharp from the jump and if he can continue to play like this, their title odds will barely take a hit. DeMarcus Cousins (quad) is most likely out for the remainder of the playoffs, but the Warriors starters are well in tune with Bogut and there's so much talent on this team that all he has to do is stay within his role and do the dirty work which is something he's used to.

Andrew Bogut will be the Warriors starting center moving forward.
The news of Bogut becoming the starting center moving forward shouldn't come as a surprise as he started in Demarcus' absence during the end of the regular season. Despite being announced as the starter, Bogut will not play the majority of minutes. Kevon Looney and Draymond Green will eat up most of the minutes at center with a smattering of Jordan Bell.

Andrew Bogut started for the Warriors in Wednesday's season finale but failed to score in 18 minutes, adding just six boards, one assist, one steal and two blocks.
Bogut was able to make his return to the NBA after the Warriors called him back late in the season. He was added for depth at center and did not really make much of a fantasy impact in the 10 games he managed to play for them in 2018-19. He ends the season with per-game value outside of the top-300 and for obvious reasons, value outside the top-400 in total value. It's hard to think that Bogut will find a taker next season, so this might be his true fantasy NBA swan song.

Andrew Bogut (rest) will miss Tuesday's game against the Pelicans.
Bogut's minutes have been sporadic, so the only impact here is a handful of minutes spread among the Warriors other centers.

Andrew Bogut started for DeMarcus Cousins (rest) on Friday night and posted six points, seven rebounds and a block in 21 minutes of action.
Bogut has jumped from the Australian league into the fill-in starter spot, though he's not much of a fantasy target unless you need rebounds in a 20-team league. Jordan Bell had six points and a block in 12 minutes and Kevon Looney had four points in 10 minutes. When Cousins returns none of these guys will matter — not like they really changed that perception tonight.

Andrew Bogut will get the start for DeMarcus Cousins on Friday vs. the Cavs.
It’s the second game of a back-to-back set so Cousins will get the night off. Bogut, while starting, probably won’t play that much considering their opponent is the Cavs.
