Veteran center Andrew Bogut has agreed to a one-year-deal with the Lakers, according to the Vertical.

The 32-year-old's agent David Bauman has told American media Bogut has signed a $US2.3 million veteran-minimum contract with the Lakers.

Bogut spent part of last season with the Dallas Mavericks after the Golden State Warriors traded him in a cap clearing move.

Having not played since March, Bogut has been rehabilitating his injured leg in his hometown of Melbourne.

It's likely Bogut will provide back up to centre Brook Lopez and he joins highly touted No.2 draft pick Lonzo Ball as among their recruits. He's not a fantasy target after averaging 3.0 points, 8.4 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.0 blocks last season. Sep.

When confirmed, the Lakers will become Bogut's fifth National Basketball Association side after he was initially drafted by the Milwaukie Bucks with the first selection in the 2005 Draft.

Bogut played with the Milwaukee Bucks for the first seven seasons of his career and the Golden State Warriors for the next four before an injury-shortened 2016-17 campaign.
