Lakers land free agent Andrew Bogut

According to Shams Charania of The Vertical, Bogut has signed a one-year veteran's minimum deal with the Los Angeles Lakers.

The 7-foot tall Bogut underwent rehabilitation during the National Basketball Association offseason to recover from a fractured leg he suffered as a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The 213cm centre has rehabbing from his injury in Melbourne since he went down with the injury in March.

The veteran first entered the league as the No. 1 overall pick in the 2005 NBA Draft by the Milwaukee Bucks, where he spent the first seven seasons of his career. Bogut was the starting center for the Golden State Warriors from 2012 to 2016.

It's finally done. News broke last week, that Andrew Bogut would be signing a new deal soon. Though she added the Lakers are "obviously. planning on him being a big part of the team", it's notable that such an established, solid center would agree to anything less than a fully-guaranteed contract.
