Multiple NBA sources: Monta Ellis is frustrated with the team's inability to fulfill promises to build a contending roster

Warriors star Monta Ellis on trade talk: “I probably could go to Orlando or Chicago and get a championship. But if they don’t move me, what can I do? Hopefully – if they don’t move me – they get somebody in here so we can win and I don’t have to go through this every year.”

Talked w/ Monta today. During convo, I said he had 2 yrs left after this year. He quickly corrected me: "One year left"

I would trade Granger for Ellis straight up, he is a playmaker (career high 6 ast a game), and he can seriously create off the dribble, and most of all, hes faced Rose and dominated him in some matchups.

I don't mean to be "that guy" but couldn't this be lumped into the rumors thread?

I'd certainly like to have Ellis, but can you get him without giving up a core player? I'm not sure Collison+Hansbrough+First Round Pick gets it done. But if Orlando is somehow in the running despite having a lot of unattractive assets, maybe we can pull it off.

The problem is that the Warriors are overvaluing Monta.....he's been on the block for awhile now...but the Warriors aren't getting the offers that they want.

This isn't any rumor just quotes from M. Ellis and some other Warriors. Very unhappy in GS. Interesting. http://www.hoopsworld.com/2012-nba-trade-deadline-diary

The wheels appear to be coming off the machine in Oakland, where a number of Golden State Warriors players took some time after shootaround to talk about how much they would like to be on another team.

“I probably could go to Orlando or Chicago and get a championship,” Ellis said. “But if they don’t move me, what can I do? Hopefully — if they don’t move me — they get somebody in here so we can win and I don’t have to go through this every year.”

Tim Kawakami tweets that Andris Biedrins and Dorell Wright intimated they would also be fine with a trade.

Perhaps the Monta Ellis to Orlando talks might get started up again, given Ellis’ clear desire to get out of town

Ellis is going to the Bucks for Bogut (https://twitter.com/#%21/WojYahooNBA/status/179725446101999616) and some other stuff

WTH? Come on, brother. If that's all it takes, the Pacers could easily top that. EASILY! Dang.
