Bogut was waiting to see if Bryce signed back up.
Plumlee-Bogut-Cotton-Norton-Steindl starting line up?
<Please note this is firmly tongue in cheek!>
I genuinely think it would be a very smart decision for him to sign in Perth to play behind Plumlee and it would be the perfect situation to get him primed for Tokyo. Helps him get fit and healthy, preserves his body, gets to train against a quality genuine 7 footer, plus throw in the chance to compete for a ring. No way it actually happens, but it's fun to dream of lol.Can't have two mammoths on the floor at the same time, so how about Bogut plays as Plumlee's backup. Limited minutes, high impact, keeps him in touch while preserving his body for Tokyo. Everyone wins. Lock it in.
Kings had Tate, Ware and Taylor last year plus Louzhada as a Next Star and Lisch who is naturalised. And Bogut on a fat contract...If Cotton gets his citizenship that'll free up an import spot for Perth. They could technically be running around with 3 imports next season still.
There was a story immediately after the finals (it came via Lachy Reid, so there must be at least a little merit to it) that Plumlee basically said to the club "If you want me, I'm yours."Hopefully the taste of winning another title is enough for Plumlee to want to come back.
Will be better after having more time to adjust to the league as well
They probably back ended it a sh*t load. Ware was rumoured to be on $700k+ and the highest paid import last season. So Cotton could be on over $700k+.Lachie saying it's the biggest NBL deal ever (Cotton), how can this be true with the 50% pay cuts this season?
Yeah but that doesn't leave much money to fill out the rest of roster years 2 and 3 without paying mega luxury tax (I think that's how it works in the NBL, I know there's a soft cap)They probably back ended it a sh*t load. Ware was rumoured to be on $700k+ and the highest paid import last season. So cotton Could be on over $700k+. I'm completely making up these numbers, but he could be on something like a 3 year / $2.2mil deal and earning only $200k in the first year (avoid the huge pay cut) and then a million for each of the next 2 years.
