Andrew Bogut is entering the final season of his contract with the Warriors and is feeling 100 percent healthy for the first time in over two years.
How healthy Bogut can remain and how much he impacts the Warriors’ expected playoff run will go a long way in determining whether or not he’s back with the team next season — or even if he makes it to the end of this one.
An expiring contract like Bogut’s — which is on the books for $14 million this year — is a tempting asset for teams out of serious playoff contention that would like to clear salary cap space for the following season to pursue some high-priced free agents. The Warriors will have options before the trade deadline passes but if Bogut proves productive it’s likely they’d keep him for the duration.
Whatever transpires with Bogut’s contract it’s not something he’s focused on. It’s the first time in his career that Bogut will play in a contract year but he believes the situation will take care of itself.
