Because it looks like he could be on his way out, if GSW finally makes up their mind about him. We've heard this song and dance about him before...they're fielding offers...they back out...they're gonna trade him...he's staying put.
But after last night's draft...it looks like life without "The real life Michael Scofield" (look up the character if you don't get the reference) could be coming soon to the bay area.
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]The T'wolves did not offer Kevin Love for Pau Gasol, as reported; it was Michael Beasley & a No. 2. Lakers asked for Love and proposed Lamar Odom. Despite denials from GM Mitch Kupchak, L.A. presented several teams about Odom, including the Warriors (Shannon Brown was a throw-in) for Monta Ellis.
A few days ago, it appeared as if the Warriors had decided to keep Ellis despite some very attractive propositions. However, late yesterday, they were back to giving serious thought to moving him if the pitch blew them away.
Word has it Ellis' agent, Jeff Fried, who did not return my call, informed management his client wants to be dealt.
The only thing is, based on that offer alone, we'd need to elicit a third team.
But we have to try....don't we? This dude is. a. BEAST. And he can play the point at a high level (put on full display when Curry was out of the lineup last season and Reggie played the 2 position.)
Donnie...Glen....James....Jesus...anyone? Please, get this man.
