There was speculation that the Philadelphia 76ers were also interested in obtaining Bogut's six fouls per game, however the extremely tall Breitbart subscriber ultimately chose to return to the side he played for between 2012 and 2016, and the side where he won his only NBA Championship in 2015.
Bogut became Australia's first number one National Basketball Association draft pick when Milwaukee selected him in 2005 and spent his first seven seasons with the Bucks before joining the Warriors where he was a starting big man for their championship run in 2015.
With a month to go in the regular season before the play-offs start the Warriors are favourites to win their fourth title in five years.
Golden State has had an open roster spot all season and with Damian Jones lost for the season with a torn left pectoral muscle made a decision to add more depth at center.
Golden State has struggled defensively, losing in embarrassing fashion at home to Boston 128-95 on Tuesday night, so Bogut's 7-foot presence in the paint could be timely.
Originally selected by Milwaukee with the first overall pick in the 2005 NBA Draft, Bogut was named to the NBA All-Rookie First Team in 2006 and was an All-NBA Third Team selection in 2009-10. "Whatever role that means, he's ready to accept and take on the challenge and we're excited to have him".
Bogut, whose NBL season ended Sunday in the league's semifinals, has received clearance from the Sydney Kings and is working on securing a US work visa.
"I kept in touch with a lot of guys there - Draymond, Steph, Klay, throughout leaving there", Bogut continued. He knows how we do things around here. He knows our system.
"He isn't really going to play much but when he gets in there, he will know what to do".
