After sending a representative to Australia to watch Andrew Bogut, the Golden State Warriors have decided to sign the veteran center, according to Anthony Slater of The Athletic.
Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports broke the news of the Warriors’ Bogut decision.
Bogut, 34, played four seasons with the Warriors and was a member of the championship team in 2014-15. He signed with the Cleveland Cavaliers the next season but didn’t last a minute before suffering a season-ending leg injury.
He spent this season with the Sydney Kings in Australia and was named MVP of that country’s National Basketball League.
The Philadelphia 76ers and Boston Celtics, were also interested in Bogut, Haynes reported. Bogut appeared in 23 games with the Los Angeles Lakers last season, when he averaged 1.6 points and 3.4 rebounds.
The two-time defending champion Warriors (44-19) host the Celtics on Tuesday night.
