Andrew Bogut has completed his buyout from the Philadelphia 76ers, per a report from Shans Charania from The Vertical. Bogut, who some believe is headed to the Cleveland Cavaliers, is believed to be deciding between the Cavs, Boston Celtics, Houston Rockets and San Antonio Spurs, per USA Today. Both Boston and Houston can offer him a salary above the veteran minimum.

If the Cavs do sign Bogut, they will have to clear a roster spot with Deron Williams set to fill the one still open. In all likelihood, that would mean Jordan McRae or DeAndre Liggins would likely be cut. Cleveland could also elect to let Derrick Williams go in order to sign Bogut before Wednesday’s deadline for playoff eligibility. The Cavs, though, have played Williams more than either McRae or Williams lately and he has a more obvious role on the team than either player at the moment.
This situation probably will develop quickly, so expect some sort of decision some time on Tuesday.
