Hobbled by an ankle injury throughout the 2012-2013 regular-season, Bogut stepped up his play in a dozen postseason games averaging 10.9 rebounds, 7.2 points, 1.8 assists, and 1.5 blocks in 27.3 minutes per contest.
Now healthy, Bogut turns 29 next month and the former No. 1 overall pick in the 2005 draft will make $14 million this season.
He's looked good in four preseason games averaging 10 rebounds, six points, two assists, and one block per 23 minutes.
And despite being a bargaining chip for the front office during their summer pursuit of free agent center Dwight Howard, Bogut likes playing for the Warriors and understands the business aspect of the NBA.
Bogut spoke to NBA.com about a possible deal:
... I do want to be here. But under the right circumstances obviously."
He's looking at a three-year extension or commanding more money on the free agent market following this season.
