Multiple Sources Reporting Orlando and Golden State Discussing Trade Involving Monta Ellis

Monta Ellis

Multiple sources have the Golden State Warriors and the Orlando Magic discussing a trade that would send Warriors guard Monta Ellis to Orlando. Both Jarrod Rudolph of RealGM and Chris Broussard of ESPN are reporting these discussions, and both point out that these are discussions and nothing is imminent. This deal would be to try to appease Dwight Howard and it should be noted that he is not involved in these trade discussions.

As Broussard points out, Howard has wanted Ellis in Orlando for quite some time. According to their sources, the Magic don’t have the necessary pieces to fulfill the Warriors needs so they will look for a third and fourth team to make the deal work.

It should be noted that I think highly of Rudolph at RealGM and consider him a great source. It’s not like he’s Ping over at Local 6, so these rumors shouldn’t be taken with a grain of salt. I had a chance to meet Ping in person on Wednesday night, and I got the same feeling that everyone suspects — that he’ll run with any story possible.

Ellis is currently averaging 22.2 points per game.
