    Why would Dallas take Golden State off the hook for the luxury tax by taking Bogut's 12 million dollar contract?

    Bogut is certainly not worth 12 million. He's injured a lot and when he did play he only played about 13 minutes a game.

    Why wouldn't the rest of the league let Golden State suffer the economic consequences of acquiring Durant?

    There had to be some money or something exchanged under the table for Dallas to bail Golden State out of a financial bind.

    It happened before, the Utah Jazz were the suckers then with Iguodala. This Warriors team has been helped a great deal.

    Bogut is an improvement for the Mavs, our competitors in that 7th seed chase.

    Mavs are just trying to stay in the playoffs for 2 more years until Dirk retires. After Dirk retires they will rebuild for probably another 4 or so years, in 6 years the Warriors will be old and gone. Good/smart move for the Mavs.

    Rockets were among the teams to have interest in Bogut. Was Morey colluding, too?

    The real controversy here is... now that they've added Bogut & Barnes, and we have Anderson & Gordon - who's better, the ****ty Warriors or the ****ty Pelicans? :p

    Simply this.

    Bogut presents the unique combo of 1 yr at a large-ish salary and legit talent at the center position. Dallas has already committed to two 4 yr deals that will eat a big chunk of their cap going forward. This move allows them to meet the salary floor this year, and remain a viable player in next summer's sweepstakes.

    The Mavericks didn't help the Warriors avoid luxury tax. Much worse, they made it possible for them to sign Kevin Durant. The Warriors had to trade Bogut to create enough cap space to sign Durant in the first place, so if every team blackballed them it could have been prevented. But there is always a team our there willing to gamble on it.

    Nothing is guaranteed in this league. Winning 73 games doesn't mean a championship. Warriors are still 1 injury away from being beatable.

    Andrew Bogut is a very good defensive player and passer out of the post.

    Honestly he would be a massive upgrade for the Rockets. He would fit what the Rockets want to do very well.

    Unfortuantely, with the new cap figures, and bloated values, Bogut would have gotten the 12 mill. Its a new market. All the prices are jacked up...literally.

    I would've taken Bogut on that contract. He's a smart defensive player that can rebound. His contract is a bargain nowadays, the Warriors are only willing to dump him for nothing so they can land Durant. If not the Mavs, other teams would've taken him.

    There was an era when trade "values" ,i.e. salaries, had to match... approximately. I guess this is still in place when trading player for player. Trading for a draft pick is a way out, I guess. Perhaps there should be a scale based on the contract. In other words, a contract like Bogut's would demand a first round pick...

    We shoulda jumped on that train....
    a 1 yr expiring contract... we coulda paired him with Clint and they coulda split time...
    A decent size expiring contract we coulda used for a salary matching trade... as it stands now, most any sizable contract we have to ship is multi year...

    Yeh, we shoulda been all over this...

    Why didn't the rockets try to get him. He is probably better than Capella.
