Andrew Bogut Unlikely To Remain In Dallas?

JANUARY 5, 11:07am: Speaking today to reporters, including Eddie Sefko of The Dallas Morning News (Twitter link), Bogut said that he hasn’t requested a trade, but he also hasn’t begged the Mavs to keep him. The veteran center does have personal reasons for wanting to stay in Dallas, per Earl K. Sneed of Mavs.com (Twitter link).

It’s worth noting that Bogut was given the opportunity to pick his destination when the Warriors traded him last summer, and reportedly chose Dallas over Houston and Philadelphia. Of course, at that time, he expected the Mavs to be a contending team this season.

JANUARY 4, 9:36pm: After an offseason trade from the Warriors last summer, Australian center Andrew Bogut is likely to leave Dallas. The veteran Mavs big man spoke over the phone with Australia’s Sky Sports Radio:

“Thankfully I’m a free agent here so I only have a couple of months more here and then will most likely move on. I don’t see myself hanging around with everything that’s gone on. It will be an interesting six months ahead.”

In 18 healthy games with the Mavericks this season, Bogut has averaged a career low 3.3 points per game. In December, the 32-year-old missed three weeks with a right knee injury.

Relegated to the bench ever since Dirk Nowitzki returned to the lineup, a move that ESPN says he initiated, Bogut has seen his role shrink dramatically. He’s scored just two points in the three games since he returned to action on December 27.

Considering the big man’s expiring contract, it’s well within reason that he gets moved prior to the trade deadline in February and his contributions as a defensive presence in the paint will make him that much more appealing to club’s looking to stock up for the final stretch of the regular season.

I’ve got a valuable contract … having four months left on my contract I’m a valuable commodity to be moved,” he said in the same interview.

Last October, Carson LaCava of Fansided’s Mavs Moneyball speculated that Bogut’s tenure in Dallas wouldn’t last long. In the 17 seasons since Nowitzki was drafted, LaCava writes, Dallas has started nine different centers for at least half a season.

    Celtics get Bogut
    Mavs get Amir Johnson & 2018 lottery protected 1st round pick

    Houston? Nope, too expensive.

    Portland? Same deal as Celtics but for Harkless.

    • Don’t the Celtics need kind of a Wing scorer? Amir Johnson is a pretty decent shot blocker and rim protector at power forward. Might be tough to give him up.

        They can still use a better defensive rim protector but I’m not sure NIGHT is much of a better piece. I’d rather stick with Johnson

          They’ve been looking for a legit 5 defender for a few years. Mavs are in rebuild mode, they’ll need picks and/or young talent. But I don’t think they’re looking for a package for 4 or 5 players just to make salaries match.

          If not Amir, then Jerebko + Olynyk or Smart (only 2 salaries that work) and they’re probably not giving up Brown for half a season of Bogut.

          So Jerebko + Olynyk + a lottery protected pick.

        But the Mavs are in “win now” mode, Dallas does not play for lottery balls…..

        In reality this team is not going to make the playoffs and if they were smart they would get as much talent in exchange for contracts that will not be coming back.

    Bogut for Terry Rozier would be fun…

      On second thought, Rozier might be a bit much, especially after including others to match Bogut’s salary.

      Demetrius Jackson could be useful to the Mavs going forward?

      Andrew Bogut for Demetrius Jackson, RJ Hunter, Jonas Jerebko and James Young.

      I think that matches for salary purposes. All the contracts expire this summer, except for Demetrius Jackson.

        So I don’t think RJ Hunter is on the Celtics.

        Also, 1 for 4, that means the Mavs have to waive 3 players. Mavs have 4 young guys making under 1M but I don’t know their team well enough to say they are going to waive any of them. James Young is an instant waive though, he’s terrible.

          Your right about Hunter. I’m sure they have another small contract to throw in their just to make salaries match. I would expect the Mavs to waive all of them except for Demetrius Jackson.

          You can switch out Hunter and include either Jordan Mickey or Gerald Green.

          It all comes down to Demetrius Jackson for six months of Andrew Bogut…

    He doesn’t want to be a part of a rebuilding, losing team. Simple as that.

    Trade him to the 76ers for draft picks. They really need a big man.

      That’d be awesome!

      Bogut and MAVS17 for Nerlens Noel, Nik Stauskas, PHI19 & PHI20.

        Pretty sure Reflect was being sarcastic… but why would the Mavs give up a top lottery pick and equally why would the Sixers give up Noel and two first round picks for nothing. Those picks could be used to facilitate trades for actual players for the team if they’re ready to compete in 2019 and 2020.

          He was certainly being sarcastic. Yet its not the most farfetched deal in the wrold.

          Mavs whole in the middle is bigger than all outside. Nerlens Noel is the top center in free agency and there’s none on his level in the 2017 draft. Cuban went hard after DeAndre Jordan, a similar player to Noel (albeit better of course).

          The Mavs would also get two late first round picks. [“Late”, because the Sixers would be a juggernaut by then with Ben Simmons, PHI17, Mavs17, LA17 & Embiid, plus Saric, Covington, and free agents]

          The Sixers get a top five pick out of the deal in a spectacular draft for guards and wings. By contrast, the Mavericks have much less need for guards and wings because of Deron Williams (UFA – but native of Dallas, Tx), Justin Anderson, Wes Matthews and Harrison Barnes.

          Again, I’m just spitballing.

          The Mavs could certainly just draft Dennis Smith or Lonzo Ball and groom them behind Deron Williams. Yet, I don’t know where or how they’re going to get a “five”.

          Should they take Harry Giles and just pray his knees hold up? Maybe.

    You are all terrible at trade offers. Bogut to the Celtics for a second rounder seems fair

    • Celtics need to offer players in a deal to make the salaries work. There is something called a salary cap.
