08:09 AM ET 10.07 | Milwaukee Bucks center Andrew Bogut will not play for the Sydney Kings -- or any Australian team, reportedly due to insurance issues. Bogut had hoped to play for the Sydney team in the Australian national league (NBL). Two other teams -- Adelaide and Gold Coast -- also had expressed interest in signing Bogut. Bauman said Bogut needed coverage for the $39.5 million and three years remaining on the 7-foot center's contract with the Bucks. "If Andrew goes back with a broken leg or a broken ankle, the Bucks might say, 'Cancel the contract,'" Bauman said in a phone interview Thursday. "This is something players get, but the Bucks still might be in a position, given a new CBA (collective bargaining agreement), to terminate the deal. There was no way to resolve that type of issue. It was too much of a risk."

Word is Bogut will never be the same. He completely shattered that elbow. I guess only time will tell, but I am actually sure that this lockout for Bogut is perfect timing. He can just keep up the physical therapy, the training, and not miss any more games.
