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.
Wolves made major pitch for Bogutl; had playing time/role available behind KAT. Celtics, Cavs also were in mix, but Bogut liked LA vibe.— David Aldridge (@daldridgetnt) September 19, 2017
