Monson: Andrew Bogut, Warriors trying to dig out of a rut

Ex-Ute is back on the floor, but much work needs to be done.

Bogut said he’s lived and learned.

Now, he seems to be settling in at Golden State, although calling him comfortable would be a stretch. He knows he’s landed on a team that has some potential, but he also has found as much anxiety as peace in that bit of fortune. After spending his pro career in competitively mediocre situations, making the most of this chance is a priority.

"We’re young, and we have a good nucleus," he said. "But we still have a lot of work to do. The talent and personnel is there. We’ll just get better and better."

Bogut also said he loves coming back to Utah, where he has fond memories of his college days. He follows the Utes from a distance, and is aware of their recent struggles. He added that he wouldn’t mind playing for the Jazz in the latter part of his NBA career.

"I feel like this is a place where it all started for me," he said. "My journey to the NBA started through Utah. Salt Lake City … it feels like it was a part of my childhood. I came here as an 18-year-old kid. It’s always going to have a special place in my heart."
