That's when the split first came to light. It was believed the deal involved 4 million plus Gardner. The board then declared it was 2 million cash plus Gardner valued at 2 million for a 4 million deal. Monk was outraged as were their fans. (They probably could have got Gardner on a free if they'd held their nerve).
I'm sure the sale of Che Adams must be close with Monk being told he'll see nothing of the money for new players, as the cause of the new rift.
