The NBA offseason has been full of changes for many teams and players. This offseason featured numerous NBA all-stars shifting teams, new rules added for 2017, and a new schedule for the upcoming season. As of the moment, teams are finalizing their roster and adding the missing puzzle pieces because training camps are set to begin next week. Here are a few new updates on the NBA free agency scene:

Celtics interested in Bogut

The Boston Celtics are one of the teams this offseason that changed their roster significantly. In two months, they added NBA All-Stars Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving while letting go of Avery Bradley, Jae Crowder, and Isaiah Thomas.

As training camps are very close and the Celtics are looking to finalize their roster by adding a final piece in Andrew Bogut.

Adam Himmelsbach of Boston Global reported that the Boston Celtics are looking to pursue Andrew Bogut this offseason. Bogut recently played for the Dallas Mavericks, and then the Cleveland Cavaliers signed him, but he broke his leg in his debut game with the Cavaliers. Before the Cleveland Cavaliers signed Bogut, it was reported that Boston was also pursuing him, but Bogut instead opted to sign with the Cavaliers. Bogut has announced that he is healthy and ready to suit for training camp if ever an NBA team would acquire him.

Bogut was drafted with the first overall pick in the 2005 NBA Draft by the Milwaukee Bucks.

This made him the first ever Australian player to be drafted with the first pick in NBA history. He had a great first few season in the NBA but was hampered by injuries later in his career. This offseason he enters his 13th NBA season and hopes to be a relevant role player for any team that would sign him.

Bogut has career averages of ten points, 1.6 blocks, 0.6 steals, 2.3 assists, and 8.9 rebounds while shooting 53.4 percent from the field, 12 percent from beyond the arc, and 55.6 percent from the charity stripe.

Brandon Knight finished with ACL surgery

A few weeks ago this offseason it was reported that Brandon Knight tore his ACL during a pickup game, no RealGM staff report has reported that Brandon Knight a couple of days ago underwent a successful ACL surgery.

This will result in him missing the entirety of the 2017-2018 NBA regular season. This will be a big blow to the Phoenix Suns as Brandon Knight is one of their main scoring and offensive threat. This will likely also add more scoring burden on the young Devin Booker next season.
