The Los Angeles Lakers made a roster move on Saturday. They have released veteran center Andrew Bogut.

The Lakers are not going anywhere this season, as they are going to fail to make the playoffs once again with their 11-27 record to start the season. This move now allows him to sign with a playoff team.

Bogut signed with the Lakers on September 19th, 2017. He signed a one-year, $2.3 million with the team.

The 33-year-old played in 24 games, including five starts, with the Lakers. He averaged 1.5 points and 3.3 rebounds in nine minutes per game.

The Lakers now have 16 players under contract, including two two-way players. They can add another player to reach the maximum 15 players on the roster.

The Australian will be looking to play for his sixth NBA team. Besides the Lakers, he’s also played for the Milwaukee Bucks, Golden State Warriors, Dallas Mavericks, and the Cleveland Cavaliers. He was in the same boat last year, as he signed a one-year deal with the Mavericks, before being traded to the Philadelphia 76ers and then bought out. He would eventually sign with the Cavaliers for the stretch run.
