NBA Trade Rumors: Why Monta Ellis Should Ask for New Home in NBA
One Recent NBA Trade Rumor Has Surfaced And It's About Time
When Monta Ellis came out of high school he decided to enter the NBA draft. Many thought that he needed to attend college to polish his game. He was overlooked in the draft until the Golden State Warriors took him with the 40th pick in the 2005 draft. What a steal he has turned out to be for the Warriors.
He has had some injury problems to start his career, but in the last two seasons he has player 144 games while averaging close to 25 points. Right now, Ellis' value has never been higher. In a league full of scorers, he is one of the best at putting the ball in the bucket. Teams need a player of his caliber, and that is why Monta Ellis has asked for a trade.
Yes, you heard me right. Ellis has asked Golden State to trade him and it is for the best. While new coach Marc Jackson insists that Ellis is in the teams future plans it might not be a good move on the Warriors part to keep him. Ellis is obviously unhappy with the situation in Golden State and wants to be moved to a winning team that he may push over the edge. The Warriors could ask for a king's ransom for Ellis and they just might get it.
That is why the deal has to be done. Ellis would thrive in a winning system and could provide a team, like Chicago, with a much needed combo guard and slasher. Meanwhile the Warriors would most likely get good developmental players and draft picks back. When was the last time a trade benefited both the team and the player?
While Warrior fans may be upset, there is no denying that the time to ship Ellis is now.
