Despite all his injuries the last few years, there are a good number of teams that would like to acquire the center and he might like a new situation.
Gery Woelfel of The Journal Times writes: "There are whispers Bogut wouldn't mind a change of scenery, having become frustrated about the team's lack of progress and his strained relationship with Bucks head coach Scott Skiles. ... Some Bucks claim the Bogut-Skiles relationship was especially acrimonious last season when they seldom communicated with each other."
Bogut has two more years on his contract and he's set to earn $13 million in 2012-13 and $14 million in 2013-14.
The Bucks are desperate to move Stephen Jackson and they'd insist any team wanting Bogut must take the swingman, too.
The Bucks wouldn't even consider trading Bogut if he wasn't hurt the last two years, but his inability to stay healthy may have changed their thinking.
id take a risk on bogut.... even if it meant taking back stephen jackson... monta +andris for bogut + jackson?????
How about Bogut and Jackson for Brown, Udoh, Klay and Dorel. We might have to take 1 more back to make the numbers work, but I think this would be more likely suitable to Milwaukee with expiring and Udoh and Klay being the pieces they could use to rebuild. Where Monta wouldn't be a rebuild piece, and the contracts of Beans and Monat are too big. $60 million for the next 3 years for both....
I just think that Milwaukee wouldn't do it... I don't know if I would trade Udoh and Klay for a hurt Bogut though. And what do you do with Capt. Jack?
