In what can only be described as an incredibly classy move, Bogut sent a congratulatory message to Sanders via his personal Twitter account.
Best of luck @l8show_thegoat Will be watching.

Sanders, a five-year NBA veteran, last played for the Milwaukee Bucks two seasons ago. The 6-foot-11 rim protector holds career averages of 6.5 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 1.8 blocks in 19.8 minutes per game. The 28-year-old’s best statistical year came during the 2012-13 season when he tallied 9.8 points, 9.5 rebounds, 1.2 assists, and 2.8 blocks in 27.3 minutes per contest.
Sanders, who stepped away from the game of basketball for two years due to a bout with depression and anxiety, saw Bogut’s tweet and decided to reply with two simple words: “Big bro”.
