The signing will be announced at a news conference Friday night.
After fighting injuries over the past few years, Bogut was traded to the Warriors in March 2012 and has become an integral part of a core the organization believes can eventually push for championship contention.
Bogut's agent, David Bauman, traveled to the Bay Area on Thursday to complete the negotiations with Warriors general manager Bob Myers.
The Warriors didn't want to risk the consequences of a healthy, productive 2013-14 season making Bogut the most attractive free-agent center on the market next summer. The Warriors have several key players – including Bogut, guard Stephen Curry and forward Andre Iguodala – locked into long-term deals now
