What are the bond angles for something that is t-shaped?

Less than 90 degrees or less than 180 degrees depending on which three atoms you look at.

one bond angle is also slightly less than 120 degrees

The bond angles for the atoms will only be slightly less than 90 degrees and slightly less than 180 degrees, not 120 as we do not count the angles between lone electron pairs.
