76ers Iguodala for Ellis?

Sources: Andre Iguodala, Monta Ellis deal being discussed - ESPN

Quote:
The Golden State Warriors and Philadelphia 76ers have discussed a trade that would send the Warriors' leading scorer, Monta Ellis, to the 76ers for Andre Iguodala, according to league sources, including one with direct knowledge of Golden State's thinking.

Didn't they turn down an offer of Mayo and picks last season?

Iggy is much more than Mayo.
GSW will have defense now.
And Philly will get the scoring.
Both teams improve a little, mainly by getting rid of redundancy (Curry/Ellis and Turner/Iguodala)

He's not worth 10Mil more then Mayo imo.

GSW hired Malone as a defensive assistant so they need some good defender for his concept to work

GSW gets the better player... but Philly needed to make a move to balance their team. It''s a move that helps both, but I like it more for GSW.

I don't really care if Iggy was #2 in the league in triple doubles or a better defender. I'd hate GSW loosing Ellis, he's like their franchise and an extremely fun to watch player.

Monta Ellis Salary - Warriors: $11.0M 2011 | $11.0M 2012 | $11.0M 2013 | $11.0M 2014 (P)

Andre Iguodala Salary - 76ers: $12.3M 2011 | $13.5M 2012 | $14.7M 2013 | $15.9M 2014 (P)

I like to read individual posts objectively... seemed like a great post!

jokes.

Iggy is awesome.... he's definitely underrated on this forum, which is odd because finding capable and willing defenders on the Raptors is achieving the unimaginable.

If this goes through, I wonder if Holiday or Turner become expendable. Lou Williams is the obvious answer, but I'm not interested in him.

Holiday is actually one of the only PGs that could make Ellis at the 2, his natural position, work because Holiday is capable of guarding 2s. Holiday is also pretty good off the ball which is necessary playing with a guy like Ellis.

Ellis is a fanastic scorer, and although he has his flaws, hes still a top 2 guard in the NBA.

The one thing I do wonder on the 6ers side is their plan with Turner as others have said, because this just cements his spot on the bench for years to come unless they can somehow fit him in at SF.

Both teams still have a long ways to go obviously though. The Warriors free up Curry and basically give him the reigns to become a top level PG in the NBA. But theyre still in desperate need of bigman help. They seriously need someone to guard the basket and David Lees defensive deficiencies.
