SYDNEY — Former Warriors center Andrew Bogut made a short but strong debut for the Sydney Kings in a preseason game in Australia’s National Basketball League.
Bogut, who went to two straight NBA Finals with Golden State, winning one title, played 15 minutes in a 77-57 win over Japan’s national team Friday. He scored four points, grabbed six rebounds and had a game-high six assists.
Sydney limited Japan to 19 points in the first half, then allowed 38 in the second when Bogut was on the bench.
“I was always just trying to ease into it,” Bogut, 33, said. “I haven’t played a game since January. When I played with the Lakers, I wasn’t getting a lot of minutes.
