    I always liked Bogut and his playing time at Center more so than Lopez. In many ways, Bogut was the anti-Lopez because he brought defense, hard screens, better passer.

    His passing made our half court offense flow much better than the garbage that we’ve been seeing.

    If anything, I would have preferred if we waived Lopez and kept Bogut....

    He was a true professional here, if there was anything we got from him I hope it was the screen setting.

    Example of what happens when the body fails you.

    We've seen this before unfortunately.

    But on a brighter side, we're freeing up a roster spot because a big move is coming.

    Good luck. He played like a true pro here, nothing to complain about, really.

    Damn, I like Bogut. I definitely preferred him over Slowpez. Sorry to hear this news actually.

    We did Bogut a favor by providing him an opportunity to prove he's worth signing for a Playoff team. I wouldn't be surprised if cutting him was always the plan since we had so many young bigs as it was. Now we'll see slightly more Zubac/Bryant and probably more small-ball with Nance/Kuzma/Randle. We might see more Lopez (which we need).

    Good for Bogut. Good luck out there buddy and thanks for airing out a bit of the dirty laundry in the locker room before you left.

    Sad to let him go. His D was good, passing, etc...Can we start Zu instead of Slowbro?
