Lakers reportedly release Andrew Bogut
For the second consecutive season, Andrew Bogut is going to be given the chance to go from the wilderness to a championship contender.
Yahoo Sports’s Shams Charania reported Saturday that the Los Angeles Lakers will release Bogut, freeing him up to go to a better team.
Sources: The Los Angeles Lakers are releasing center Andrew Bogut. With Lakers at 11-27, this allows sides to part ways and Bogut to pivot toward signing with a playoff team.

Bogut has been a fringe contributor to the Lakers, starting just five games and averaging only nine minutes per contest. He will hope that, wherever he lands, the tenure there goes better than it did when this happened last year.
