Monta Ellis happy to stay in Golden State for now!!
After a furious offseason of dealing and signings in the NBA, there have been many rumors of guard Monta Ellis from Golden State being shopped around to many teams. Now it looks like he will be starting the new season with the Warriors for now.
Ellis is one of the best guards in the NBA, last season he averaged career high in points per game with 25.5, 4 rebounds, 5.3 assists, 2.2 steals and averaged 6 free throw attempts a game. He only played in 64 games cause of injury, but he really broke out last season and showed everyone his true talents playing along side Stephen Curry. Ellis came out before and even said he didnt think it would workout with him and Curry playing along side each other but it worked out well on the court but no victories to show. Warriors struggled last season with a record of 26 wins and 56 losses.
Ellis was quoted as saying “I’m happy where I am, It’s like when I talked to Stephen Curry this summer. The only thing we can do now is play basketball. I thought we did a great job last season, but we didn’t get the wins. The Warriors management got us a lot of new pieces including All-Star forward David Lee from the New York Knicks. Hopefully, we can stick them together and plug up the holes that we’ve been missing.”
Overall expect the Golden State Warriors to struggle again other then Curry,Ellis and Lee this team isnt deep at all and there bench isn’t solid either. If I was Ellis, I would demand a trade out of Golden State cause honestly there still far away from competing especially in a stacked Western Conference. Also if I was a GM of a team out there in the NBA desperately needing a good two way guard who is allready really good and has the potential to be amazing, and also have the pieces to move to get him I would do it in a heartbeat.
This guy has amazing talents he is great offensively, quick first step, can break down the defense, good ball handler and distributor. Defensively he is one of the top guys in the league in steals allways. If I was a team looking for a solid two guard this is your guy to go after he has all the tools to be a great guard in the NBA and he is only 25 years old. Lets see what the Warriors management does if they trade him or not.
