The Warriors gave Andrew Bogut a choice between the Rockets and Mavericks, and Bogut decided to go to Dallas.
The 76ers also inquired about Bogut, but the Dubs never seriously entertained those offers, as they wanted to send Bogut to a playoff contender out of respect. Bogut could see a small boost in value playing in Rick Carlisle's system, but his lengthy injury history makes him a risky target in any setting. For what it's worth, Carlisle proclaimed Bogut is a "top-five" defensive center in the league, and suggested he'll have a role in Dallas' offense, primarily as a passer and roll man. Jul 15 - 1:26 PM

Andrew Bogut has been included on Team Australia's roster for the Olympics.

The Australian coach will give Bogut until the night before games begin to recover from the bone bruise around his left knee, but even that may not be enough time for the big man to prove his health. The Mavericks may prefer Bogut simply sit out to ensure he's fully healthy entering training camp, but it's hard to imagine the big man sitting if he's able and cleared to play for his country.

The Mavericks have officially finalized their trade to acquire Andrew Bogut.

Thursday's news makes Monday's news official and the Mavericks will now absorb the $12.7 million of the last year of Bogut's contract. Bogut will have a bigger role with than he had with Golden State, but his injury history limits him to a late-round target in fantasy drafts.
Jul 7 - 1:07 PM

The Mavericks have acquired Andrew Bogut in a trade from the Warriors, and they will absorb him into available cap space.

Bogut will earn $12.7 million in the final year of his contract, and Dallas will renounce contracts to clear space for him. Deron Williams recently agreed to a one-year deal and Dallas continues to pursue a two-pronged strategy, propping up their playoff chances in the short-term while clearing space for the FA bonanza of 2017. Bogut will have a more prominent role in Dallas, but given his age and injury history he's just a late-round target for shot-blocking, rebounds and FG percentage.

After agreeing to terms with Kevin Durant, the Warriors are now expected to trade Andrew Bogut.

Golden State needs to move salary in order to accommodate Durant's arrival, and Bogut will likely be the first casualty of the cause. According to USA Today's Sam Amick, there have already been three teams that have called the Warriors to express interest in Bogut's services, and ESPN's Marc Stein reports that the Mavericks have "emerged as a strong potential trade destination" for the big man. We'll find out where his new home will be soon enough.

Andrew Bogut (left knee) could still play in the Olympics according to Australian manager Bruce Kaider.

"He is back in Melbourne doing his rehab and he will be there [at the camp] next week,’’ Kaider said. "Everything is going well, he is working around the clock doing everything he can to get himself right. From my understanding from him it’s probably a month before he can get an indication of where he is at." Bogut injured the knee on June 13 and was given a timetable of 6-8 weeks, but it's a good sign that he even has a chance of playing in the games. Bogut has been mentioned in some trade rumors and will likely be moved if the Warriors are able to sign Kevin Durant.

The Warriors drafting Damian Jones with the 30th pick could have been "an indication of the team's frustration" with Andrew Bogut, according to Monte Pool of CSN Bay Area.

This isn't too surprising to hear with the Warriors possibly looking to make changes. If they want to sign Kevin Durant, they would have to let Festus Ezeli and Harrison Barnes walk in free agency while they would have to trade Andrew Bogut or Andre Iguodala. According to the report, Bogut is more likely to be traded.

Andrew Bogut's left knee injury will not require surgery, according to Warriors GM Bob Myers.

This was the expectation when the Warriors updated Bogut's status a week ago, but it's nice to have it confirmed by the team's GM. Bogut suffered bone bruises to his tibia and femur, and he's expected to miss 6-8 weeks, making it very likely that he'll be sidelined when Australia competes in the Rio Olympics.
Jun 22 - 8:34 PM

Andrew Bogut (knee) was seen without crutches or a brace on Thursday.

Bogut will still miss the rest of the NBA Finals, and he's already acknowledged that it's "very unlikely" he'll suit up for Australia at the 2016 Olympic Games, but it's good news to see that he's able to walk unassisted. With Bogut no longer available, Draymond Green will see the biggest fantasy boost, while Warriors will also mix in a combination of Festus Ezeli, Marreese Speights, and Anderson Varejao.

An MRI revealed bone bruises to Andrew Bogut's proximal tibia and distal femur in his left knee, and his timetable to return has been set at 6-8 weeks.

That obviously rules Bogut out for the remainder of the Finals, and it will also likely force him to opt out of the 2016 Olympics Games, although he'll have plenty of time to recover for the 2016-17 season. With Bogut no longer a part of the equation for Golden State, the Dubs will likely go with a healthy heaping of small ball lineups with Draymond Green getting all the run he can handle. Festus Ezeli, Marreese Speights and Anderson Varejao will also have the opportunity for some extended minutes.

Andrew Bogut reportedly will not require surgery to repair his injured left knee, although he's unlikely to play in the remaining two games of the NBA Finals.

Bogut's recovery timetable has reportedly been set at 6-8 weeks, so it's safe to say that he will not be available to return during the Finals. The Dubs still have not revealed Bogut's MRI results, but given that surgery is not expected to be required, it sounds like he's avoided a more serious injury. The Warriors will likely roll out a ton of small ball lineups sans Bogut, and Festus Ezeli will also have the opportunity for some extended minutes.

According to sources of ESPN, the Warriors are still reviewing Andrew Bogut's (knee) medical data.

Marc Stein of ESPN also added that we can expect an official update from the team on Wednesday. We already know that Bogut traveled with the Warriors to Cleveland, but the team hasn't provided an update on his playing status just yet. Expect to see a lot of small ball with Draymond Green at the five in Game 6 if Bogut is unable to play.
Jun 14 - 10:36 PM

Warriors' GM Bob Myers said that Andrew Bogut (knee) will make the trip to Cleveland for Game 6.

Myers added that the team is still awaiting the results of Bogut's MRI, but with how much pain Bogut was in after hyperextending his knee during Game 5, it would be surprising to see him able to suit up on Thursday. If Bogut is indeed unavailable for Game 6, it'll likely be Festus Ezeli picking up the majority of his minutes, with guys like Anderson Varejao, Marreese Speights and James Michael McAdoo all doing their part to help fill the void. Draymond Green will get all the run he can handle.

The Warriors are moving the MRI on Andrew Bogut (left knee sprain) to Tuesday.

It was originally scheduled for Monday night, but the team will push it back. It could be due to so much swelling or it could be another factor. Bogut's knee was hyperextended and he was writhing in pain, so it could be a season-ending injury with ligament damage. The Warriors missed him on defense, but they also missed him on their high screens on offense. If he's out, Festus Ezeli would likely step up the most while getting Draymond Green back is huge.

Andrew Bogut (left knee sprain) will not return on Monday.

He has an MRI scheduled for Monday night to check on the severity of his knee. The injury looked scary in the third quarter with Bogut unable to put weight on his left leg. There's a very strong possibility Bogut is out for the season. The Warriors are missing him badly to protect the paint. There will be more minutes for Festus Ezeli, James Michael McAdoo and Anderson Varejao. Harrison Barnes has played some center, as well.
