Report: Cavs not interested in Andrew Bogut reunion
Despite a relative lack size in their frontcourt this season, the Cleveland Cavaliers do not plan to bring back a familiar (and available) seven-footer.
ESPN’s Dave McMenamin reported Saturday that the Cavs have no interest in a reunion with Andrew Bogut, who was officially released by the Los Angeles Lakers this weekend. McMenamin notes that Cleveland’s roster is already full.
The Cavs have no interest in Andrew Bogut, a league source told ESPN. For one, they already have 15 players on their roster. His Cleveland career will remain at 58 seconds played. https://t.co/sIbnvqEVEM

The 33-year-old Bogut averaged 1.5 points and 3.3 rebounds in 9.0 minutes per game across 24 appearances for the Lakers this season. As hinted above, he was briefly a member of the Cavs last season but suffered a broken leg just 58 seconds into his Cleveland debut and never played another game for them.
A veteran depth piece like Bogut shouldn’t have too much trouble finding a new home on another playoff contender. But as for the Cavs, it seems that they have their sights set a bit higher when it comes to the center position.
