Even though we haven't even hit February yet, the trade rumors are starting to swirl. From A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com:
While the Celtics have maintained repeatedly that they have no intentions of moving any of their core guys between now and the Feb. 18 trading deadline -- and I believe 'em on this one -- multiple league sources confirmed today that the Golden State Warriors are giving some thought to putting together a trade package that would involve Monta Ellis going to Boston in exchange for Allen.
For such a deal to work, the Warriors would have to include at least one additional salary. The most likely player to be included would be Vladamir Radmonovic, who has a player option after this season but isn't expected to exercise it.
Danny Ainge, Boston's president of basketball operations, has talked to a number of teams about a number of players recently.
But it doesn't appear that this is a deal he has given any serious thought to considering.
