Bogut the business man
AFTER 13 seasons in the NBA, Andrew Bogut returns home to Australia, singing a two year deal with Sydney kings in the NBL.
The NBL or the Kings won’t disclose the figures around Bogut’s deal, but it’s estimated to be worth around $1million.
More importantly, Bogut’s vision for life after Basketball will see him take a 10 per cent ownership of the Kings after his two-year playing deal is done and with the option to buy more.
Kings owner Harvey Lister has revealed Bogut’s Sydney deal includes the prospect of being involved in a host of business opportunities through AEG Ogden’s holding company called Sydney Arena Sports Investments.
These post-basketball ventures could include ownership of other sporting franchises, hosting or owning eSports video game competitions or teams.
