"I still have a special place in my heart for Milwaukee," Bogut said. "I went through adolescence to late teenage years to growing into a man in Milwaukee so it'll always have a special place in my heart. I believe I still have a lot of fans there.

I'm excited to go there and see people that I spent my first eight years of my career with." San Jose Mercury-News

Rod Thorn, NBA President, Basketball Operations, issued the following statement today regarding the ejection of Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin with 10:43 remaining in the fourth quarter of the Golden State Warriors' 105-103 win over the Clippers on Dec. 25, at Oracle Arena: "After a league review of the Clippers-Warriors game, we have come to the conclusion that Blake Griffin should not have been ejected from the game. A common foul should have been called on Griffin for initially attempting to dislodge the Warriors' Andrew Bogut and a technical foul should have been assessed to Bogut for grabbing Griffin by the shirt and wrestling with him."

Hence, if you have any doubt as to a healthy Bogut's importance on this particular trip, consider the words of forward Marreese Speights. Speights played a season and a half with Memphis in 2011 and 2012, and said when the Warriors came to town, the objective was always simple. "The main focus was out-bullying them, and making sure you hit 'em a couple times," said Speights, now a Warrior. "That was the mind-set every time they played against us." San Jose Mercury-News

A total of three players were ejected from Portland’s 113-101 road victory over Golden State on Saturday in the aftermath of a third quarter scrum. There was quite a bit going on in this on-court altercation, which carried toward the courtside seats near the Warriors bench before it was eventually broken up by the referees and coaches from both sides. Bogut eventually swung his right forearm and elbow to clear Freeland off of his body, which prompted a number of Blazers to come to Freeland’s defense. SI.com

A third-quarter fracas broke out late in the third quarter of the Portland Trail Blazers' game at the Golden State Warriors on Saturday night, leading to the ejection of Wesley Matthews and Mo Williams. Golden State's Draymond Green also was ejected, and technical fouls were assessed to LaMarcus Aldridge, Joel Freeland and the Warriors' Andrew Bogut. Matthews was assessed a technical as well, but the ejection came because it was his second technical of the game. Williams received a straight ejection. The pushing and shoving came after Bogut threw an elbow to the jaw of Freeland as they were battling in the paint with 3:42 to play in the third quarter. Oregonian

Andrej Lemanis says NBA superstar Andrew Bogut remains "100 per cent committed" to the national side despite being at long odds to play in next year's FIBA World Cup in Spain. After overcoming a horrible run of injuries, Bogut - who just signed a new $36 million, three-year deal with the Golden State Warriors - says he is "up in the air" about representing Australia between now and the 2016 Olympics. "I'm not too sure right now (about the World Cup)," Bogut told the Basketball Australia website. "The body is still a concern for me and I know how much I got out of this last off-season because of the rest and regime I put together. "My immediate goal with the national team is to definitely play in 2016 (Olympics) and anything in between is up in the air right now." FOXSports.com

Joe Lacob: With Bogut, you have to look back and say, yes, he has been injury-prone. There is a big risk here that we're going to be signed up for four years on a guy who may not play as much as we'd like. But you have to look at free agency next summer. There's not a lot. We would be fighting, like we were two years ago, looking for a center. We like Festus Ezeli, but we believe in being good and big and having depth. We had to take a chance. We decided he plays the exact type of basketball that we want to base our team around. So, let's take a chance. Hey, you're not going to win on all these things. But he fits very, very well with what we're trying to build. CSNBayArea.com

DeAndre Jordan and Andrew Bogut got into a shoving match and had to be separated after receiving double technical fouls. Chris Paul stared down Klay Thompson on multiple occasions after plays. And Blake Griffin even got into it with Warriors coach Mark Jackson after bumping him on the sidelines one time too many. "He was taking it out and he bumped me twice," Jackson said. "I wasn't going to let it happen a third time." Griffin laughed about the incident, saying, "Before the game coach said we have to find a body and box out, and I just mistook him. It was my fault. "It was nothing, really. He thought it was more than I thought it was." ESPN.com

As has been reported, Bogut’s guaranteed base salaries descend from year to year in order to give the Warriors’ some flexibility in the later years–to fill in the numbers, MT-2 and I believe the deal starts at about $12.9M in 2014-15, drops to about $12M in 2015-16 and finishes at about $11.1M in 2016-17.
