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.

When it comes to the game of Utah Jazz superstar guard Donovan Mitchell, there isn’t much not to like. But Mitchell wants to ramp up his play on the defensive side of the ball.

In fact, Mitchell wants to become an elite defender.

“For me, the biggest thing is just to get back to my roots. The biggest thing is to elevate my defense, to get back to what got me drafted,” Mitchell said, according to The Salt Lake Tribune’s Andy Larsen.

“I think that’s one thing I’ve prided myself on, and I think (USA head coach Gregg Popovich) has really put that in my head as well.”

If Mitchell, who is an elite offensive weapon, can improve defensively, the Jazz will be an even bigger threat in a stacked Western Conference next season.
