Andrew Bogut didn’t shy away from voicing his opinion on the Grizzlies money saving trade with Rudy Gay last week. In an interview with David Aldridge, Bogut called the move ‘scary’ and says he knows Lionel Hollins, who he used to play for, must be very ‘pissed’.
According to NBA.com:
Wow. There’s a can of worms opened on that one. I hate to judge another franchise, but basically, you know, I guess money’s come before winning, essentially. And that’s scary. That’s scary. Real scary. I guess they thought saving some money and maybe taking a couple more losses is something they’d like to do. I can’t believe, I know Lionel [Hollins, the Grizzlies' head coach] personally as well, because I was with him in Milwaukee. I know that right now he really can’t say much about it, but he’d be pissed, when you trade away one of your best players, and you’ve made a run the last two years, and you keep that group together, you’ve got a chance to do something special. And you trade a vocal piece of your team, it makes no sense to me.
