Report: Mavericks agree to trade for Warriors’ Andrew Bogut
The Mavericks and Warriors have agreed to a deal that will send center Andrew Bogut and his $11 million cap hit to Dallas to make room for Kevin Durant in Golden State, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein.
The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski first reported that the two sides were close to an agreement.
Durant agreed to sign a two-year, $54.3 million contract with the Warriors on Monday, leaving the team with several moves to make. They reportedly will renounce forward Harrison Barnes, who is expected to join the Mavericks, making him an unrestricted free agent. Festus Ezeli, a 26-year-old center, will also be renounced according to ESPN’s Marc Spears.
Bogut, 31, played 70 games last year for the Warriors and averaged 5.4 points and 7.0 rebounds in 20.7 minutes per contest. He went down with a knee injury in Game 5 of the NBA Finals and had to miss the rest of the series.
