We can debate all day about who else is involved. Ultimately the trade is Wes Mathews and Gerrald Wallace for Monta Ellis
and someone else. The Warriors
want to move Ellis. They were interested in Wes Mathews last year. They have been rumored all season to be looking to make a move. Mark Jackson believes this team can make a playoff push.
- We can't finish games. We need a true closer
- We have no consistent scorers or anyone who can get to the rim/free throw line
Ellis is a true 2 guard (SG). He fills exactly what we need.
I'm expecting a few of you to say, "GO ATER STEPH CURRY INSTEAD." Don't get me wrong, I love Curry. But we would still have no true closer and Curry has a tendacy to disappear on the court at times, unlike Ellis. Curry also only gets $3M a season. He would be a lot harder to get. We would probablly have to take back a bad contract like A. Biedrins. Not worth it.
Get Ellis. Sell the Warriors on G-Wall being a leader and Wesley replacing Ellis. This is the move to make. There are NO other realistic closers/proven scorers on the market. Make THE TRADE.
