Let's all assume that the main position the Warriors are going to select this upcoming draft is a Point Guard. That being said, there are many PG's in this years draft with their own limit of talent and skill set. I am not going to rank them in order because you'll never know who's better than who until they play in an NBA game.
So the Warriors have their guards too,
CJ Watson most likely won't be starting PG next year for the Warriors, but definitely capable for another team.
That leaves Monta Ellis, who doesn't care what guard position he plays, as long as it's a guard. So assume he's officially a point guard period. He would have to compete against other PG's in the league such as; Deron Williams, Chris Paul, Tony Parker, Derrick Rose, Gilbert Arenas, etc.
We havn't seen Monta play Point a whole season yet, but how valuable is Monta Ellis really, that's the question.
Back to the draft, point guards being drafted this year vary in talent and skill. Let's compare them to our point guard: Monta Ellis. Not only by telent and skill, but leadership and what they can do for a Team instantly with a strong impact.
Mainly, is there any Point Guard in the draft that the Warriors CAN draft( Probably not Rubio) that can be better than Monta?
(You fill in the blank with >, or <, or =.)
-This is just estimating before you've seen these PGs play in an NBA season, but Monta hasn't really played as a Point Guard in an NBA season too has he? So it's fair to compare them now.
Ricky Rubio ____ Monta Ellis
Johnny Flynn ____ "
Jeff Teague ____ "
Brandon Jennings ____ "
Patty Mills ____"
Jrue Holiday ____"
*Add your own if you'd like. Even if it's players like Andre Miller, Derrick Rose etc.
Out of these draft prospects who would; in a couple of years, MOST LIKELY to have a bigger impact than Monta Ellis as Point Guard for their team? I know Monta isn't a draft prospect but I'll put him as a choice... If one thinks Monta Ellis can/ is better
