First off i am very hesitant to post this just for the backlash i would recieve just for insinuating it could happen. so let the record show that i am not for or against this happening but, the trades the pacers have made in the past sometimes make you scratch your head anyway.
Incoming owner Joe Lacob did interviews on radio and TV on Tuesday and revealed some of his thoughts on the Warriors.
According to Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News, Lacob said he will be very active on the basketball side of the organization. Lacob added that he liked the trade for David Lee and his $80 million contract. Futher, Lacob indicated he's not sure Don Nelson should coach the team this upcoming season, and that the club's salaries won't exceed the luxury-tax threshold.
Kawakami wrote the following about potential trades: "Lacob sounded a lot more excited about Lee and Stephen Curry than he did about Monta Ellis and Andris Biedrins. Nothing wrong with that. I wouldn't presume that these guys will definitely be traded. But it's also something everybody in the league will be watching."
Monta Ellis love him or hate him, he is a very good player especially since he was drafted 40th in 05 same as our boy lance. Golden states owners last year also were rumored to having ellis on the block. You can bet they want him gone soon for the reason that they aren't in love with him longterm next to curry. curry needs to get shot of his own. ellis while he shoots a high percentage he takes alot of shots. He averaged 25.5 5.3apg 4.0rpg shooting .449 for the year and averaging 22 shots per game.
With golden state wanting ellis gone he could be rather cheap considering they really just want to cap relief so they can continue to rebuild and would probably take draft picks and a young talent. they wouldnt want ford most likely but they may not mind since his contracts is up at the end of the season. there pgs would be curry ford and lin. you got your best player a veteran and a rookie which is how most nba rosters look at pg. this would be our only offer though since they aren't taking murphy or duleavy back but, would be funny if they did.
ellis's contract is 11mil per year for the next four years.
Once again i am not for this or against this. i know job would like him but, he could prove very bad for our young development.
just want to get peoples opinon on what they think of monta and what other teams you think he would be good with?
maybe he can go to new jersey and they can send us devin and we send golden state ford. new jersey get a very good talent in ellis we get our pg and golden state gets alot of money off their books.
there has been talks of us being the third team in a pual trade so why not an ellis trade.
