Default trade bogut?

hey i was wondering why bogut hasnt bin traded yet. a 1st round draft pick sophmore center should not be averaging only 11 points and 7 boards and gets close to zero blocks...like what is that.

It's way too early to give up on Bogut. He's not bad, he's doing OK

ok is not what u expect from the number one pic. lets see the year before him who was the 1. pic..dwight wasnt it??
who averaged 12 points 10 boards and a block or two.
before him was bron who averaged 20-5-5
then before him was yao who averaged 13 points 9 boards and 2 blocks...
then bogut comes along and scores 9 and 7 with barely a block??! i love bogut im a freaking australian but when u are the number 1 draft pic ur supposed 2 step your game up.

The problem isn't just Bogut, I mean he would probably play a lot differently on another team. I think part of the issue is with C.Vill. gone; he doesn't have as much support down low, I mean there aren't really any other big guys left on the Bucks who can play 30+ minutes. Let's wait until the All-Star Break to see how Bogut's numbers are doing.

I actually like Bogut. He is a PERFECT fit for the Bucks. They are full of three point shooters, and since Bogut is a decent rebound and a prolific passer, he can distribute the ball the the shooter well since he always tires to hit the offensive glass. Also a good pick and roll player.

Also don't forget that the other mentioned players were given pretty much free reign over their teams. They were used straight away. Bogut doesn't get enough touches on offense at the moment......

Well put. I also think that it's way too early to give up on Bogut. The more confident, aggressive, and tougher he becomes, the better player he will become. He's looked better (quicker) in the last couple of games: LA, GS, and last night against Portland. I don't personally think that he will ever score 20+ on avg. for a season, but Milly doesn't need him to. He should distribute from the post and run pick and rolls. Can anybody think of a better passing center than Bogut now...imagine what he could do next year? Or maybe by the end of this year? Injuries and terrible defense have hampered this team the most, not Bogut.

I will admit....I'm a little concerned. He hasn't shown the consistent fire that he had last year. Bogut WILL get better, he's adapting to a new role. That being said, and I'll play the Devil's advocate here, what if we went after a high profile center, god forbid we're bad enough to land Oden, and move Bogut back to the 4? With Bogut's +12' shot and passing ability....couldn't, and maybe wouldn't he be better suited there (despite his past?) (Maybe if we had a coach and GM with some cashews) Let's just say that were to all happen. Could we find a suitor for Simmons? Then move CV to the 3? that would be a nice, and BIG 3-5.

Isn't Bogut kind of soft? He's only average 7.7 rebounds? I don't know, there really isn't a cure for softness unless he just is in the learning process and will up his rebounds in the next couple years. Why don't you wait until it's his contract year and trade him if he still is soft? He also might be more physically fit in the next couple years, this could help him out. He weighs 245lbs right now. In two years he could weigh 260lbs and be killing everybody on the block. He has a sweet touch too doesn't he? I wouldn't trade him yet guys. He has enough potential to keep around. Free throw percentages look bad, but better than most centers. Doesn't appear to be a hard hard worker...tell me a little bit more about the negatives and positives of this guy before you just ask a question.

maybe they should let him take more shots and get the ball more often...

when dwight howard was taking 8 shots per game he too was averaging about 12 points per game... and if he wasnt at the high post all the time i am sure he would pull down more boards...

i am not 100% sure but i think when Bogut was playing U18 for Australia he averaged 25 pts and 15 brds a game in the World Championships... obviously he can play but this system is not working for him so far!

The league lacks really good centers. We are lucky that we have a more than a decent one. Anyways I don't predict him to be a superstar. Prolly a above average solid player.

move him down to the PF position and start Skinner at Center... this will hide Bogut's flawls...

Kinda soon to be talking about trading Bogut. he has terrible coaching for one and he;s better fit at power forward.

Bogut is going to be great, but he needs a partner down low.
