Andrew Bogut Signs Contract With Warriors for Rest of 2019 Season

Andrew Bogut will be back in the Bay in no time. 

The Warriors announced they signed Bogut to a contract on Wednesday afternoon, bringing back the Australian-born center who left the team after the 2015-16 season.

The terms of the deal were not disclosed, but Shams Charania of the Athletic reported that Bogut is expected to sign a one-year, minimum deal for the rest of the 2019 season.

Bogut played for the Sydney Kings of the National Basketball League this season in his native Australia. The center was named MVP of the league after averaging 11.4 points and 11.6 rebounds per game in 30 games.

The 34-year-old will fill the Warriors' 15th roster spot. He last played in the NBA in 2018 when averaged 1.6 points and 3.4 rebounds per game for the Lakers. But for four seasons, he was a central cog on the Warriors. 

Manning the middle of the paint, Bogut averaged 6.3 points, 8.3 rebounds and 1.7 blocks per game in Golden State. Though it's expected he'll play in short spurts, the big man could be the exact enforcer the Warriors need to three-peat.
