take a minute to think about what Monta Ellis might look like next to rondo. Scary right. Way too fast. Now put a pretty fast (and hopefully still getting faster) PF named KG next to him. No one would be able to keep up.
Ok so the trade is Ray for Monta Ellis and Turiaf and it works moneywise but i think it also works logically for both teams. We do need something different and even though Ray is doing exactly what we got him to do, thats not what we need at the moment. We need a sg who is able to play point and able to create his own shot. Ellis is one of the best at that. I think that this trade would lead us into the playoffs with a team that, especially offensively, cannot be stopped.
