Andrew Bogut suffered a season-ending tibia injury as a member of the Cavs.

Veteran center Andrew Bogut has agreed to a one-year-deal with the Lakers, according to The Vertical's Shams Charania and TNT Sports' David Aldridge. 

Bogut, 32, has struggled to stay healthy in recent seasons, playing just 27 games in 2015-16 before fracturing his left tibia one minute into his mid-season debut with the Cavaliers. Before that, his defensive grit helped the Warriors claim the 2014-15 championship, their first in 40 years. 

The first pick in the 2005 Draft, Bogut has averaged 10 points and 8.9 rebounds in 671 career games with four teams. 

Per NBA.com's David Aldridge, Bogut chose the Lakers over the Timberwolves, the Celtics and the Cavaliers.
