Former No. 1 pick Bogut signs with Australian pro team

Andrew Bogut never found a team to pick him up for the NBA playoffs and now it appears his career is headed back to Australia.

Waived by the Los Angeles Lakers in January, the former No. 1 overall pick has signed with the Sydney Kings, the team announced on social media on Sunday.

The Kings say they will have a press conference Monday morning to officially announce the deal.

The Kings finished their NBL season in February with an 11-17 record.

The 7-footer from Australia was picked No. 1 by the Milwaukee Bucks in 2005, spending his first seven years in the league there before signing with the Warriors, eventually serving as the starting center on their 2015 championship team.

In 694 career games with five teams, Bogut averaged 9.8 points and 8.7 rebounds.

The 33-year-old Bogut, who joined the Lakers in the offseason, played in 24 games (five starts), averaging 1.5 points and 3.3 rebounds in 9.0 minutes per contest.
