Warriors, Bogut Begin Negotiations
Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

SHANGHAI, China – The Warriors and Andrew Bogut have opened negotiations on a contract extension designed to keep him off the free-agent market in July, he told NBA.com, with Bogut willing to make major concessions to stay but also looking for payback from management for pursuing Dwight Howard last offseason. Bogut said team officials started conversations with agent David Bauman last week, before the Warriors left Oakland for exhibition games in Beijing and Shanghai against the Lakers. Bogut expects talks to heat up once Golden State returns to the United States following the Friday night contest, and that the issue will come to some resolution by early in the regular season: Either he will have a new deal soon or he will become a free agent because neither side wants the discussions dragging long into 2013-14.
