Report: Bogut to join Cavaliers

ESPN reported that center Andrew Bogut has decided to join the Cavaliers after he clears waivers Wednesday

CLEVELAND -- It looks as though the Cavs are going to be able to have their cake and eat it too.

Cavs GM David Griffin was hoping to add a point guard and a big man at the NBA trade deadline. After not making any trades, Griffin was able to add former NBA all-star Deron Williams after he was bought out by the Mavericks. 

Now, ESPN's Marc Stein reported that 7-0 center Andrew Bogut has decided to join the Cavs after being bought out by the 76ers, if he is scheduled to clear waivers on Wednesday. He could join the Cavs this weekend.

In his 12-year career, Bogut is averaging 10 points a game and 8.9 rebounds.

Bogut faced the Cavs in the previous two NBA Finals with the Golden State Warriors, but was released when the Warriors signed Kevin Durant in the off-season. 

If the Cavs sign Bogut, they will have to release a player to make room for him on the roster.
