Andrew Bogut To Retire Early?

Will Andrew Bogut retire early as a result of the coronavirus? That is the question some are asking this week.

Speaking to the media recently, Bogut acknowledge that he had planned to retire following the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. With those games now being moved to 2021, he is unclear as to what his next move will be.

“I haven’t done any basketball since the season ended and it feels good waking up, getting out of bed and not feeling like I’m walking on glass,” Bogut said.

“It’s (my career) all been thrown into a washing machine essentially … but there’s a decision to be made probably by mid-May.”

So where will he go from here?

“We’ve been tantalizingly close and the squad we’re going to have is arguably going to be the best squad in the history of the Boomers, on paper at least,” Bogut continued.

“To be part of that, selfishly, is something I really want to do, but the body is what it comes down to.

“I can get up for a basketball game any day of the week, but it’s hard to get up for five, six days of training a week and lifting weights.”

Will Bogut ultimately retire?
