Monta Ellis to Portland?

Hey as we make our rounds through the league looking for the next PG for our beloved Blazers, what about Monta Ellis? In 2007-08 he averaged 20.2 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 3.9 assists per game, and a solid perimeter defender in the league.

While he is still very young at 21 years of age he has 3 years of NBA experience and has played 30+ minutes per game the last 2 seasons. So he comes with some solid experience but young enough to be coached by Nate and his staff.

He is a restricted free agent this summer and Golden State will have several other players that may need to be resigned before Monta. Perhaps a trade evolving Channing Frye (a mobile big man who can shoot) would fit into Don Nelson's system?

Perhaps you think he's too much of a scorer? I think he's young enough to realize the potential of what this Blazer team could be to put his scoring needs aside.  I think that this may be my best point of this post; won’t other players want to be part of the Blazers as it appears that this team is on the cusp of something very special?
