Keith Ramon Bogans (born May 12, 1980) is an American professional basketball swingman with the Boston Celtics of the National Basketball Association (NBA).

High school and college

Bogans attended DeMatha Catholic High School in Hyattsville, Maryland, and was a First-Team All American in his senior year. He was coached by Morgan Wootten, leading DeMatha to a 34–1 record and a number three national ranking in 1999. He was recruited by the University of Kentucky, and was a four-year starter for the Wildcats under coach Tubby Smith. In his senior year at UK, he led the 2002–2003 Wildcats to a 16–0 sweep of the Southeastern Conference and the SEC Tournament title, finishing with an Elite Eight run in the NCAA Tournament. He was an All-American as a college senior when he averaged 15.7 points, 3.8 rebounds, 2.7 assists, and 1.2 steals. He was also 80-for-209 from three point range. After his sophomore season in which he averaged 17 points and 4.6 rebounds it looked like he may be a future first rounder. His illustrious collegiate career ended as he limped off the court at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome, after playing the game on a severely sprained ankle. The Wildcats ended up losing to Dwyane Wade's Marquette squad in the Elite 8.

NBA career

Orlando Magic

Houston Rockets

On February 9, 2006, Bogans was traded to the Rockets for Lonny Baxter. Interestingly, Chuck Hayes and Gerald Fitch, Bogans' former teammates at the University of Kentucky, along with himself, were all at one point members of the Rockets (although Fitch never actually played as he was released).

Second stint with Orlando

Bogans re-signed with the Magic in July 2006 as a free-agent.1

On November 22, 2008, Bogans, starting his first game2 of 2008–09 season, broke his thumb on his non-shooting hand in a game against the Houston Rockets.3 He was expected to miss 4–6 weeks.3 However, he had the cast on his thumb removed on December 34 and 5 returned two days later on December 5 against the Oklahoma City Thunder, scoring 9 points in 26 minutes.67

Milwaukee Bucks

San Antonio Spurs

Though his statistics were considered modest for a starter, coach Tom Thibodeau praised Bogans' defense, saying "If he's guarding you, you know he's guarding you. He's going to make you work. He's a physical player." Bogans said about his offense that people "need to understand that's not why I'm here. I'm on the floor with Luol (Deng), Derrick (Rose), Carlos (Boozer)... there aren't a lot of shots for me and [reserve center] Kurt (Thomas)."13

On March 15, 2011, Bogans scored a season-high 17 points in a win against the Washington Wizards to help the Bulls secure the top-seed of the Eastern Conference.14

The Bulls decided to hold out as long as they could regarding their decision on Bogans' contract, because they were waiting to see how the rest of the market for shooting guards was.17 On December 16, 2011, Bogans was waived by the Bulls.18
