Blazers named in M. Ellis rumor

"And though a league source said Ellis has drawn sign-and-trade interest from the Heat, Cavs and Blazers, nothing is likely to materialize. Any scenario would require approval from the Warriors, who are intent on keeping Ellis and Biedrins."

I think he's a hell of a player, and would fit the 'combo guard with B. Roy' model for the roster.  He's a real scoring guard, super quick.  We'd presumably give Raef plus assets (SRod, Bayless + X, where X could be one of the usuals).  What would it take for you to pull the trigger on such a deal?  (About 8 nanoseconds?)  

If the extra X were Webs or Travis, we'd need some SF help back, don't you think?  Or would we be happy spreading the time at three around to Rudy?  Imagine an Ellis, Roy, Rudy, LA, GO lineup, that would move.

Not too many players that would make me think of dealing with the current roster, at least not this year -- Ellis is one of them.
