The viral case of Josh Giddey’s involvement with a reported minor has prompted fellow Australian and former NBA player Andrew Bogut, to shed more light on the issue during his Rogue Bogues podcast.

Andrew Bogut revealed that the incident took place more than a year ago. However, he admitted the challenge of providing precise details about the case until the full story becomes clearer. According to Andrew, the Oklahoma City Thunder had been aware of the relationship for a considerable period of time.

Andrew is questioning whether the NBA has the authority to take action against Josh, given that there are currently no charges filed. It has been revealed that the parents of the reported minor have no intention of pressing charges against Giddey, as she had misled him about her age. Although Andrew’s statements are intriguing, fans are still determined to uncover the truth of the case.

Lately, Josh Giddey has shown impressive performance on the court this season for the Thunder, averaging 12.1 points, 5.8 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 0.8 steals, and 0.6 blocks per game.
