The Milwaukee Bucks may sign center Andrew Bogut to a new long-term contract as early as July.
The third-year pro from Australia has one year left on his rookie contract, when he’s scheduled to make $6.3 million, but the Bucks have indicated they’d like a long-term deal.
Bogut says his agent is pushing for a new contract this summer to protect his earning power, should he get hurt while playing for the Australian national team in the Summer Olympics.
The seven-foot Bogut has stepped up his play this season. He has 31 double-doubles, with 14 points and nine rebounds per game.
Bogut has also improved on defense and he has shown his durability, missing only two contests this season.
The Bucks will play at Miami tonight (Monday) after beating Cleveland by 10 at home on Saturday night.
