OAKLAND — Before signing center Andrew Bogut to a contract extension Friday, the Golden State Warriors waived three training camp invitees and extended the contracts of three regulars.
The Warriors waived guard Seth Curry, center Dewayne Dedmon and forward Joe Alexander. They also exercised the fourth-year contract option on shooting guard Klay Thompson and the third-year contract options on forward Harrison Barnes and center Festus Ezeli for the 2014-15 season, as expected.
"If you quote the quote The Godfather, 'We were settling all our family business,'" Warriors general manager Bob Myers said at the news conference announcing Bogut's contract extension.
A person with knowledge of Bogut's deal told The Associated Press it was for three years and $36 million and could be worth up to about $42 million with incentives. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the terms had not been publicly disclosed. Bogut's contract was set to expire after this season.
The roster is at 14 players, one fewer than the maximum allowed. The Warriors could still sign another player before Wednesday night's regular-season opener against the Los Angeles Lakers.
