Very realistic Monta Ellis trade

http://games.espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=yk7fdum

I guess the link is not working. It is Kirk Hinrich and Luoi Deng for Monta Ellis and Corey Maggette

 

Kirk Hinrich is an excellent defender, very tough, and has the ability to be a 15 ppg scorer. He is a total combo guard, who can guard players as small as Chris Paul and as large as Paul Pierce. Chicago has been looking to trade him since Derrick Rose was drafted because of his bad contract.

Deng is good fit in golden state because of his slashing ability. His size at 6'9, 225 allows him to be a very good defender, especially on the perimeter. He is often praised for his work ethic and is an excellent rebounder. His contract is nearly identical to Montas

Chicago may be compelled to do this trade for several reasons. Derrick Rose is one of the few players in the NBA that is big enough to guard the two, despite being a point guard, an ideal situation for Monta. In addition, Monta is a very similar player defensively to Ben Gordon, so Chicago would not be afraid to add a bad defender at the shooting guard position. Finally, Monta not only brings 20 ppg potential, but also creates one of the quickest back courts in the NBA.

Corey Maggette is simply an upgrade at 6th man over Kirk Hinrich. He is a more complete offensive player, as the ability to score in the post (something Chicago hasn't been able to do since the days of Artis Gilmore) and can get to the foul line.

If the Warriors could pull this trade off, we could finally see some defense on the team, even if Nellie tries to prevent it. But in all honesty, the Warriors, no matter who they acquire, will not see real improvement until Nellie is gone, and even more realistically until Cohan sells the team.
