Andrew Bogut Agrees to Join Lakers

Veteran Aussie Baller Andrew Bogut Just Signed With The LA Lakers

The big man has agreed to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers, according to multiple reports.

Bogut, 32, has been a free agent since parting with the Cleveland Cavaliers in March, when he sustained a broken leg on his debut for the club.

Andrew Bogut, a former No. 1 overall draft pick, has established himself as an elite rim protector and frontcourt playmaker through his 12 years in the National Basketball Association.

Bogut was eventually traded to Golden State in return for Monta Ellis, and proved to be an integral part of the Warriors' 2015 championship.

The Lakers are in the middle of rebuilding their roster around this year's number two overall draft pick Lonzo Ball. The partial guarantee on the contract, though, effectively protects the Lakers against any potential injuries the center may suffer in training camp or preseason.

Bogut's addition also presents the Lakers with a veteran backup for Brook Lopez, one who provides solid rim protection and defensive rebounding.

Bogut already has an existing relationship with head coach Luke Walton, who served as an assistant during his time with the Golden State Warriors.

Bogut will most likely serve as a valuable rotation piece for the Lakers, capable of playing some great interior defense, but the days of Bogut scoring close to 16 points a night are long gone.

The injury to Bogut seemed to foreshadow the next few years; an injury-shortened his 2016-17 campaign and the Warriors chose to trade him to the Dallas Mavericks before the 2016-17 season.
