After using their 11th overall pick on sharp-shooting Klay Thompson and trading for quality guard Brandon Rush before the season started, the Golden State Warriors signaled to the rest of the NBA that Monta Ellis can be had.
But what teams took notice?
Ellis will come at a high price, but after a weak 2-5 start to the shortened 2011-2012 season, the Warriors could be coaxed to move the energetic guard if the price was right.
Why only six teams, you ask? Because I'm not going to allow society's infatuation with the numbers zero and five dictate how many teams might be interested in a shooting guard. That's silly.
