Why turn his money into two times the scratch for zero production? If you just cut him, you would have $15 million more in cap space right now while still solving the Curry-Ellis problem.
Bogut is a top Center and that's something the team has not had in over thirty years. He was traded for while injured, but that's the only way the team would have gotten him. The chances of Bogut coming back and contributing real well are higher than him not.
You can't just cut a player like Monta, you have to trade him. The trade was as good as it could have been in that situation. The team got to lose games, thus getting Barnes in the draft instead of having to give the draft pick to Utah and Klay got to start and get alot of minutes, showing he is a good starting SG. It worked well in almost every way.
