The 7 foot Aussie will likely be coming off the bench as backup center for Brook Lopez who also signed with the Lakers during the offseason.
Bogut was the No.1 overall draft pick of 2005, however has battled injuries during his career, but when healthy has proven himself as one of the best defensive big men and rim protectors in the league.
