The Cleveland Cavaliers are close to adding frontcourt depth for the rest of the regular season and playoffs.
Veteran center Andrew Bogut is committed to joining the Cavaliers, The Vertical reported Tuesday. He would be the second acquisition for the Cavs this week, joining point guard Deron Williams, who signed with the team on Monday after he was waived by the Dallas Mavericks.
The Cavs now have to wait for Bogut, who was released Monday by the Philadelphia 76ers, to clear waivers before they sign him.
The 12th-year pro was dealt to the 76ers last week from the Mavericks in a deal that included young center Nerlens Noel going to Dallas. Bogut never played a game with the 76ers before he was waived.
The 32-year-old started his career with the Milwaukee Bucks and was there seven seasons before he went to Golden State in 2012. He was part of the Warriors championship team in 2014-15.
Last summer, the Warriors traded him to the Mavericks to open cap space to allow them to sign free agent Kevin Durant.
In 26 games with the Mavericks this season, Bogut averaged 3.0 points and 8.3 rebounds. The 7-footer has career averages of 10.0 points, 8.9 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 670 regular-season games.
