Andrew Bogut chooses NBA Cavaliers: Agent

Andrew Bogut has joined the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Bogut's agent, David Bauman of ISE, told The Associated Press on Tuesday night the veteran centre plans to sign with the Cavaliers as soon as he clears waivers.

Bauman anticipates Bogut will join the defending NBA champions by this weekend.

Bogut was traded at the deadline from Dallas to Philadelphia in a deal that brought Nerlens Noel to the Mavericks.

He and the 76ers agreed to part ways so Bogut could join a contender, and he had several teams lining up to add the defensive-minded centre.

Bauman says the decision was "a lot harder than Bogut anticipated."

Bogut has already informed Cleveland, Boston, San Antonio and Houston of his decision.
