Andrew Bogut agrees to one-year deal with Lakers

Andrew Bogut has agreed upon a one-year, $2.3 million deal with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Per NBA.com's David Aldridge, Bogut chose the Lakers over the Timberwolves, the Celtics and the Cavaliers. He saw action previous year for the Dallas Mavericks and Cleveland Cavaliers. Bogut has since recovered from it, and will be available once the Lakers' training camp starts.

The 32-year-old is coming off a disrupted season after breaking his leg just minutes into his first game for the Cleveland Cavaliers in March.

The 32-year old has averaged 10 points, 8.9 rebounds and 1.6 blocks per match over his 12-year National Basketball Association career and won a title in 2015 when part of the Warriors.

Bogut had earlier reached a buyout agreement with the Philadelphia 76ers then had several contenders vying for his talents - a 7-foot rim-protector with play-making abilities. Bogut faces minor competition in the centre position with the side's roster also sporting Brook Lopez, but his veteran presence will likely be seen as a big asset on a roster that skews extremely young.
