Washington, Oct 26: The Golden State Warriors announced that they had extended the contract with Australian centre Andrew Bogut.
“OFFICIAL: The Warriors have signed center Andrew Bogut to a multi-year contract extension,” tweeted the NBA club Friday, one day after the pre-season ended, reports Xinhua.
The three-year deal is reported to be worth $36 million, with incentives that could raise its value to $42 million, according to USA Today.
That would require the 28-year-old top overall pick in 2005 NBA draft to play at least 65 games in each of the three seasons covered and reach certain performance levels, the newspaper said.
