Reports: Warriors teammates Andrew Bogut, Harrison Barnes both heading to Dallas

Andrew Bogut

The Golden State Warriors are working out the details of a trade that would send Andrew Bogut to the Dallas Mavericks, according to multiple reports.


The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski first reported that the two teams were close to an agreement Monday afternoon, shortly after Kevin Durant announced his decision to sign with the Warriors.

Moving Bogut will take $11 million off the books for Golden State, clearing cap space for Durant’s reported two-year, $54 million deal.

In addition to dealing Bogut, the Warriors reportedly will renounce forward Harrison Barnes, making him an unrestricted free agent. According to ESPN’s Mark Stein, Barnes has already verbally agreed to a four-year, $95 million deal with Dallas.

Both moves cannot be made official until the league’s moratorium period ends Thursday.  

The Mavs will now likely turn their attention to re-signing Dirk Nowitzki, who recently became a free agent after declining his player option. Nowitzki has said that he would like to remain in Dallas but has not yet committed, as he could go elsewhere to chase a ring as his career winds down. However, the moves with Bogut and Barnes could be enough to lure the veteran star back to the Mavs.
