Jazz Joe Ingles Recruiting Andrew Bogut For 2017-2018

The Utah Jazz have a reputation for being very open to signing international talent regardless if they are foreign players or American players returning from a stint overseas.

So it should come as no surprise that one of their own foreign players is trying to recruit his fellow countryman to join the team.

Australian forward Joe Ingles is interested in the Utah Jazz signing free agent big man Andrew Bogut, according to the Australian Associated Press.

“I would love for him to come over to Utah” Ingles said.

“He’s got a connection there already and if they want to take him I’ll happily have him.”

Bogut, 32, has battled injuries in recent years and his stint with the Cleveland Cavaliers lasted under a minute due to fracturing his tibia after colliding with another player.

Despite the injury, Bogut expects to make a full recovery.

“I don’t feel like this injury will hurt me long-term, because the bone will heal stronger than it was before” Bogut said per Steve Aschburner of NBA.com.

Adding Bogut to the mix makes a lot of sense for the Jazz who are still recovering from the departure of Gordon Hayward.

“I play with a lot of close friends and the support I’ve gotten since I arrived, not just the community, but from my teammates, has been huge,” Mitchell said following the win, via Desert News’ Eric Woodyard. “Me being able to do what I do, on a daily basis, is not the norm. In this league, a second-year guy, even a first-year guy last year, and my teammates have had my back with every mistake and everything I’ve done well.

“When you have that support system in your locker room every day, it makes it easier when you start out the game with two straight turnovers.”

Utah Jazz forward Joe Ingles has been impressively durable and currently holds the longest active streak of consecutive games played, a testament to his training.

With 281 straight games played, Ingles recently discussed what it takes to accomplish the feat, crediting his fitness routine and lifestyle for his durability.

“We do a lot so we spend probably like an hour before every practice and game on the table getting treatment,” Ingles said, according to the Desert News’ Eric Woodyard.

“We spend probably about the same, 30 minutes to an hour after the game, to be reasonably healthy when we can. But yeah, especially for me, doing the treatment before and after the game is why I’m able to be out there every night.”
