Australian centre Andrew Bogut is set to join the Cleveland Cavaliers and Cavs star LeBron James is exciting about the prospect of playing with the Golden State championship winner.

Bogut is well known for his aggression and his defending around the ring and James says he will add some important attributes to the team.

“He likes to compete,” James said.

“He will do whatever it takes to help his team win so I respect that.”

However, James said that Bogut, and fellow new recruit Deron Williams will not change the structure of the defending champions.

“It doesn’t (change the team),” James said.

“Our process is the same.

“How can we get better every day and put ourselves in a position so we can compete for a championship?

“It’s the same storyline.

"(It adds) depth and we need it,” he added.

Bogut is expected to officially sign with the club this weekend.
