The clearance process, with the Sydney Kings of Australia’s National Basketball League, is slates to take about 48 hours.

After practice on Monday, head coach Steve Kerr confirmed that the Warriors have been dialoguing with Bogut and his camp.

“I’ll just cut right to the chase and tell you that we have been talking with Bogut and his representatives," Kerr said. "Nothing is official and there’s things that have to happen and we can’t really comment on it until it’s official.”

Bogut, 34, last played in the NBA during the 2017-18 season, suiting up in 23 games for the Lakers. While Bogut's addition would fill the Warriors' roster with 15 players, there's still a chance that more moves will be made before the club sets its 15-man group for the players. Two-wing player Damion Lee has pushed his way into the playoff conversation with his strong showing on the offensive end.
