Ellis wants out!!

Monta Ellis left the team to attend to a family matter, but sources tell Marcus Thompson that it is in part a protest.

Ellis didn't stick around for the team photo, which was taken last Friday before the Warriors' home game against Charlotte. Also, according to the sources, he left with an amount of luggage that suggested he wasn't coming back soon.

According to sources, Ellis has talked about wanting to be traded during moments of frustration on the court.

There's a guy I'd look into acquiring. Combo guard, likes to push the ball. I'm not a fan of his contract and he's a bit of a tweener, but he's a player.

ughhhh, the guy just signed a huge deal in the offseason, pretty much blows up his ankle for 8 months, and plays 15 games this year and is demanding a trade?

this is whats wrong with the league IMO.
i dont care how good the guy is, i dont want him here. he's now getting labled as a team killer in my books.

and if he wants out of GState, theres no way he wants iN TO.

AND the fact that he straight up lied about ever being in the motorcycle accident that blew up his ankle in the first place. Agreed, seems like a prima donna to me.

I disagree, Beans and Ellis are very solid players.

I also like Wright and Randolph.

he did it last year with BDiddy, Buki, and SJAx.
i dont see a difference really.

maybe the real deal is that BDiddy carried that team and Ellis road his coat tails.
and now that Bdiddy is gone, Ellis cant do squat.

Why don't you just become a Warriors fan?

Then you can have all the guys you so desperately covet on your team.

I dunnno.

Toronto made game seven of the second round going the prima donna route.

Our nice guy route is producing a nightly tribute to the "Vagina Monologues" which quite frankly, didn't need an imitator.

I say take a chance on him, he has too much talent to go to waste.
But he has to play under the right coach

When have I ever desperately coveted these particular player.

Ellis would be great on this team as he is young and is exponentially better than any wing we currently have.

And Insider, it is alot easier to share with players who share back.

Crawford and Maggette are now part of the team and both are notorious ball hogs.

SJax needs to get his but he does pass the ball, BDiddy always averages 7 or 8 assists per.

the arguement i have with this is that BDiddy played the same position as Ellis.
and now, Ellis is the main PG on that team. you'd think that if he would at least be getting some more assists this season.... yet he's only avg 3 (1 less from last season).
moreover, playing alongside Maggette and crawford ('notorious ballhogs'), he's getting 15+ FGA per game. which is even more shots per game than he avg'd last season.

sorry snooch, your theory doesnt work.
the inly excuse is that he's still rusty from his time off and his ankle isnt 100%.

Perhaps I've got the worng impression, but you've made about ten trade proposals all involving them and then just listed even more players on their squad that you like.

While he is young, what happens if that ankle never heals fully and at most he averages 13ppg without the explosiveness he used to have? Then you're paying the guy 11 mil a year for the next 5 seasons for 13ppg - and as an undersized 2.
