Andrew Bogut’s agent was caught off-guard by Warriors’ interest
Andrew Bogut made a surprise return to the NBA with the Golden State Warriors earlier this month. It was so surprising, in fact, that even his agent was caught off-guard.
Bogut relayed a funny story in which the Warriors’ interest in bringing him back to the NBA developed so quickly, his agent didn’t even realize he was talking to them until Bogut informed him.
“Funny enough, my agent didn’t even know,” Bogut said, via Ethan Strauss of The Athletic. “I told my agent, ‘Hey I’m talking to the Warriors,’ and he was like, ‘What the f—? Do they know I’m your agent? Why don’t they call me?'”
There were hints of interest early in the month, but it certainly sounds like Bogut only had eyes for the Warriors when he realized he could play in the NBA again. It also sounds like it came together very, very quickly — so quickly that his agent was initially caught flat-footed.
