It’s official. Andrew Bogut, an ageing one-kneed volcel who believes autism exists to trigger the libs, is headed back the NBA.

After rampant speculation over the past few days, any remaining doubt was put to bed after the Golden State Warriors announced they’d signed Bogut in what’s believed to be a one-year minimum deal.

The unlikely NBA return comes on the heels of an MVP season in the NBL with the Sydney Kings, who fell just short of a Grand Final appearance after being summarily swept by Melbourne United in the semi-finals.

Bogut’s return to the NBA was subject to the Kings’ season being over, and required a letter of clearance from both the Kings organisation and NBL management. After those were obtained, the Warriors were free to sign Bogut today.

There was speculation that the Philadelphia 76ers were also interested in obtaining Bogut’s six fouls per game, however the extremely tall Breitbart subscriber ultimately chose to return to the side he played for between 2012 and 2016, and the side where he won his only NBA Championship in 2015. The Warriors ultimately offloaded Bogut to Dallas in order to free up the cap space required to sign Kevin Durant.

Warriors officials are hoping Bogut’s defensive presence can sure up an ailing off-ball Warriors side that is faltering defensively, currently ranked 16th in the league. It also adds depth to a chart that lacks in the true centre department, and is lagging while DeMarcus Cousins searches for form after returning from a niggling achilles injury.

Bogut is expected to travel with the Warriors on their upcoming four-game road trip next week, beginning in Houston on Thursday Australian time.

As for his now-Warriors teammates, Draymond Green seems at least partially enthused.

So there you go. Andrew Bogut, Australia’s physically largest brain pills fan, is heading back to the NBA.
