Milwaukee Bucks: 3 Reasons Monta Ellis Will Mesh with Brandon Jennings

Is Monta a one-man show?

The Milwaukee Bucks traded for guard Monta Ellis back in March. Some may say that he and guard Brandon Jennings did not mesh last season, and they will not mesh this season. But there are a few reasons to believe that the two talented guards will mesh in the 2012-13 season.

When Milwaukee traded for Ellis, the team parted ways with center Andrew Bogut. While this was a difficult move because of how good Bogut is when he plays, his health issues were just too numerous to keep him. In return, the Bucks received a dynamic 2-guard that can score from outside and on the pick-and-roll.

It quickly became clear, though, that Milwaukee had acquired a similar player to their point guard Brandon Jennings. Both can score, drive, handle the ball and have monster games.

Unfortunately, Ellis is also plagued by turnovers, poor shooting percentages, has a small frame for defending and he needs the ball to score.

These two players may be too similar to coexist, but there are a few reasons to believe this relationship can work.
