Andrew Bogut has officially signed with the Cleveland Cavaliers according to an official press release.

The announcement comes one day after the Cavaliers signed Deron Williams. After not making any trades, Griffin was able to add three-time all-star Deron Williams after he was bought out by the Mavericks.

Williams has found a home in Cleveland and has played significant minutes since signing with the team on February 9.

Bogut spent seven seasons with the Bucks.

Now in his 12th National Basketball Association season, Bogut has averaged 10.0 points, 8.9 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.6 blocks over 29.1 minutes of play in 670 career games, 651 of which he has started during his time with the Milwaukee Bucks, Golden State Warriors and Mavericks.

Bogut spent the past four seasons with the Golden State Warriors, who could be on a collision course to play the Cavs for the third straight year. On Friday night, the team will face the Atlanta Hawks, followed by Saturday night matchup with the Heat.

"I just want to stress how close it was, because Brad and Danny did a hell of a job with this thing", Bauman told Himmelsbach via the Boston Globe.

Most teams are lucky to get two players drafted that highly on the same squad and the Cavs roster would definitely qualify as an embarrassment of riches at this point. "When (Kyle) Korver first got here, we turned down a lot of shots, we didn't do the things we were accustomed to doing because we were trying to get him integrated, make him feel comfortable".

It's likely that Jefferson, Frye and the younger Williams will constantly shift roles in the second unit beside Bogut as they can all play power forward.
