RUMOR: Monta Ellis wants out of Golden State and Warriors looking to trade him

Did you really think it was over with the Stephen Jackson trade?

Of course not. The Dubs Drama continues with Monta Ellis, the "mastermind" behind Moped Gate!

GSoM friend Tim Kawakami (even while on vacation!) has details and more in Ellis/Warriors situation set to hit full boil at Thursday meeting: Trade inevitable?

Anyone know where this ride is going?


We'll update this as more unfolds. Jump for links from the archives.

Multiple NBA sources have confirmed that Monta Ellis' status with the Warriors could be determined Thursday, when his agent is scheduled to meet with team management in Oakland.

 

Several sources indicate that Ellis' agent, Jeff Fried, already has discussed the possibility of the Warrriors giving Fried and Ellis permission to talk to other teams to quicken the pace of trade talks.
...

(UPDATED:) Multiple sources say that, apparently at Don Nelson's urging, the Warriors have been calling teams and offering to trade Ellis in recent days.

It is likely that their efforts will only intensify, barring some 11th-hour peace treaty. Ellis has four years and $44M owed to him after this season, but several sources say that he will be less difficult to trade than Stephen Jackson was.

And it seems inevitable that Ellis will be traded, presuming that Nelson remains in power, and every source I've talked to believes that Nelson will remain in power.
