Bogut to get on with job

NT News - - SPORT -

HE is over all the pre-sea­son hype, now prize NBL re­cruit Andrew Bogut just wants to play.

De­spite a mi­nor in­jury scare when he had a knee iced af­ter tak­ing a knock at train­ing on Thurs­day, Bogut has been cleared to suit up for Syd­ney in their sea­son opener at home to Ade­laide to­day.

Bogut’s much-her­alded re­turn to Aus­tralia is set to at­tract even more eye­balls to the resur­gent com­pe­ti­tion.

“We al­ways spoke at the out­set when we first ac­quired the league about how good it would be for a player like Andrew Bogut to one day con­sider it an ap­pro­pri­ate end­ing to their ca­reer to come back to the NBL,” com­pe­ti­tion chief ex­ec­u­tive Jeremy Loeliger said.
