Bogut backs NBL trade

Mercury (Hobart) - - SPORT -

SYD­NEY Kings star An­drew Bogut would love to see the NBL in­tro­duce a trade win­dow in the com­ing sea­sons.

Bogut has seen the ben­e­fit of a trans­fer win­dow dur­ing his dec­o­rated NBA ca­reer and be­lieves the NBL could ben­e­fit from a sim­i­lar sys­tem.

“I don’t think the NBL is in a po­si­tion to have any trades at the mo­ment, just be­cause it is pretty hard for a bloke mak­ing $70,000 a year to move but I’d like to see some­thing down the track,” Bogut said. “For ex­am­ple, you could make two trades a sea­son be­fore round 10.

“Any­thing that can give the league more me­dia, PR and fan in­ter­ac­tion, es­pe­cially when games aren’t on, is a good thing. That is where the NBA hits the nail on the head.”
