Early years

Bogut was born to Croatian immigrants in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. As a 15-year-old, he was cut from the Victoria junior state representative team.

He went on to lead the Australian team that won the 2003 FIBA Junior World Championships, and was named the tournament MVP.

Bogut's sophomore season in the league was cut short after spraining his left foot and being put on the injured reserve for the final 15 games. He had previously fought off any injury to play in 153 consecutive games.[1] He showed improvement in his second year in the league as he averaged 12.3 points and 8.8 rebounds per game. [2] Bogut is considered one of the best passing centers in the league, having averaged 3.0 a game in the 2006-07 season. His per 48 minute average of 4.2 was better than a number of point-guards, naturally expected to distribute the ball.

The move would cost him $25,000.[3] The finger. ... The Toronto Raptors are a professional basketball team based in Toronto, Ontario. ...
