DALLAS -- Andrew Bogut is headed to the Dallas Mavericks from Golden State thanks to the Warriors successful pursuit of Kevin Durant.A person with knowledge of the deal said Monday that the Mavericks have agreed to acquire Bogut with the Warriors trying to clear salary cap space so they can add the four-time scoring champion Durant to the Splash Brothers duo of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.Other details of the trade are still being worked out, the person told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal hasnt been finalized and cant be official until league business resumes Thursday.The person also said the Mavericks are set to sign Harrison Barnes, who will become an unrestricted free agent after Golden State renounces his rights to clear enough cap room to sign Durant.The Mavericks had informed Barnes they would him extend him an offer sheet as a restricted free agent, but now the sides have agreed to a maximum contract and Dallas will sign Barnes to a four-year, $94 million deal as early Thursday when contracts can be finalized.I just want to thank the entire Warriors organization, my teammates & coaches for the amazing 4 years Ive had there, Barnes tweeted.The Mavericks missed out on their top two targets in free agency for the fifth straight year when Memphis guard Mike Conley and Miami center Hassan Whiteside stayed with their current teams.But Dallas added three starters in two days, including bringing back point guard Deron Williams for a second season with his hometown team. The Mavericks also virtually assured the return of Dirk Nowitzki for a 19th season.Bogut will get $11 million in the final year of his deal, and Williams has agreed to a one-year, $10 million contract. Those moves will give the Mavericks more flexibility next summer with expected strong classes in free agency and the draft.The Mavericks should be competitive in the meantime after things looked bleak following the first day of free agency. The lineup is similar to last season, when Dallas was the sixth seed in the Western Conference with a 42-40 record, and lost to Durant and Oklahoma City in five games in the first round.Bogut, a 7-footer who averaged 5.4 points, 7.0 rebounds and 1.6 blocks per game last season, is expected to be healthy after sustaining bone bruises around his left knee in Game 5 of Golden States seven-game loss to Cleveland in the NBA Finals.While hes not the same player who averaged a double-double for three straight seasons earlier in his career, the 11-year veteran is a stronger presence at the rim than Zaza Pachulia. Pachulia started for Dallas last season after DeAndre Jordan committed to the Mavericks, changed his mind and stayed with the Los Angeles Clippers.Barnes has lacked consistency but will bring a 3-point threat similar to that of Parsons. The question is how efficient he will be without Curry and Thompson getting most of the focus from defenses.Wesley Matthews is going into his second season as Dallas shooting guard, with an expected improvement in his career-low 39 percent shooting because he came back sooner than expected after tearing his Achilles tendon late in his final season with Portland.Nowitzki hasnt agreed to a deal, but thats likely a formality that might not be complete until after other signings.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Well, this isnt the way anyone wanted to see Tony Stewart end his career. The driver went into NASCARs playoffs with a roar and is on the verge of exiting with a whimper.Stewart is in the bottom four of the Chase standings and will be eliminated Sunday at Dover International Speedway if he doesnt pull off some sort of miracle before the field is trimmed from 16 to 12 drivers. Hes retiring at the end of this season, and all his fans wanted to see a solid run toward a fourth NASCAR title.Instead, he opened the playoffs with a 16th-place finish at Chicago and he was 23rd on Sunday at New Hampshire. Chris Buescher is the only driver below him in the standings, and Stewart might just need to win at Dover to advance to the second round.Kevin Harvick, who won at New Hampshire to earn an automatic berth into the second round, isnt counting out his teammate. With Harvick secure and Kurt Busch 11th in the standings, Stewart-Haas Racing can put an emphasis on Stewarts performance at Dover.He can go to any racetrack and perform. He can go to any racetrack and win, Harvick said. Hes Tony Stewart. I wouldnt bet against him. Well do everything we can to help him get to the point where he needs to be to try to move on.This is hardly the position anyone thought Stewart would be in a month ago, when his fiery side began to emerge as the Chase approached. He wrecked Brian Scott at Darlington, wrecked Ryan Newman at Richmond and seemed to be in no mood to play around over the final 10 races of his NASCAR career.But hes not performing on the track, not at the level to race for a championship, at least, and thats got to change Sunday or he will close his career watching the playoffs go on without him. Stewart has not finished higher than 16th in the last six races, and his average finish is 26.3 over that span.He has three career wins at Dover, the last during his 2013 march to the title. But his average finish of 14.1 wont get it done.Who else could be eliminated on Sunday? A list:CHRIS BUESCHERIf you filled out a Chase bracket, you almost certainly had Buescher eliminated in the first round. He barely made the Chase, needing to cling to 30th in the standings to be eligible, and his Front Row Motorsports team just isnt equipped to competee with the big dogs.dddddddddddd Buescher was 28th at Chicago, 30th at New Hampshire and is last in the 16-driver Chase field.If it rains on Sunday, and he uses strategy to stay out and inherit the lead before the race is canceled, then hes got a shot at avoiding elimination. That is, after all, how he won Pocono to get into the Chase.JAMIE MCMURRAYHe is 14th in the standings, and thats a bit of a surprise because the Chip Ganassi Racing cars had been strong headed into the Chase. McMurray was eliminated in the first round last year, and believed his team had learned enough to make it through this opening three-race stretch. But theres no room at all for error in the Chase, and a 19th-place finish at New Hampshire simply isnt good enough.Ganassi teammate Kyle Larson, who many thought would go deep into the playoffs, isnt secure, either. Hes 12th in the standings -- only five points ahead of the elimination spot.AUSTIN DILLONHe is tied with McMurray in the standings and trails Larson by five points for the transfer spot. Not because hes been bad in the Chase, but because hes been mediocre through the first two races.Dillon was 14th in the opener, 16th at New Hampshire and doesnt have a top-10 finish in six weeks. His New Hampshire race was a struggle, but Dillon felt his Richard Childress Racing team persevered and has hope for Dover.I never gave in, never gave up, our team never gave up, he said. We go to Dover and weve given ourselves a shot. Weve just got to go run good there.EVERYONE BESIDES HARVICK AND MARTIN TRUEX JRA win gets a driver an automatic berth to the second round, and Harvick and Truex have each punched those tickets.But the standings are so close throughout the rest of the field that a mechanical problem, a crash or simply ailed strategy could end the Chase for any driver. Only six points separate fifth-place Joey Logano from 11th-place Kurt Busch and no one is feeling all that safe. Chase Elliott is ninth in points and finished third at Chicago, but hes hardly breathing easy.When asked what he expects from Dover, he was blunt: I feel like its an upcoming race and we need to do a better job.
