Andrew Bogut was the first Australian player to be drafted number one overall in the NBA Draft.
After a successful college career at the University of Utah (where he won most major national individual awards, earning Player of the Year honors from the Associated Press and ESPN.com, plus the Naismith and Wooden Awards), Bogut was named to the All-Rookie First Team and finished third in votes for the NBA Rookie of the Year Award in his first year in NBA.
Bogut's sophomore season was cut short after spraining his left foot and being put on injured reserve for the final 15 games. The often controversial and outspoken big man from Endeavour Hills was named to the 2009–10 All-NBA Third Team following this breakout season and became the first Australian to earn All-NBA honours.
