The big man signed a three-year, $50 million deal in 2015 in what looked like a good move for Milwaukee, but has yet to pan out over the last couple of years. Monroe is in the second year of that deal with a player option for next season at $17.8 million that he will most assuredly pick up.
With Jabari Parker out for the season once again and Milwaukee sitting outside of the playoffs, could they pay the price of a future first for someone to take Monroe off their books? Would Dallas do that?
In this situation, Dallas would probably send a package around Bogut and another player for the price of a year and a half of Monroe and a future first round pick. If the Bucks would give up next year’s pick, that would be huge in the deal.
