Andrew Bogut is leaving the Bay Area. The Golden State Warriors agreed to ship the veteran center to the Dallas Mavericks in order to help clear the cap space needed to sign Kevin Durant on Monday. Bogut was shipped to Texas, taking just over $1 million in salary off the Warriors' ledger for the 2016-17 season. It's not yet clear what the Warriors will pick up in return for the former No. 1 overall pick or if any other compensation will be headed to Dallas for the team's willingness to absorb this contract. Since the Mavericks are currently well under the league's salary cap, they will not have to send back a matching salary in return.
