I was on Chad Ford's live chat this morning when he was answering questions. Not surprising at all that someone asked about the Monta situation:
Chad - rumor has it that Monta Ellis is unhappy. The only way to appease him was to promise NOT to draft a point guard. If Jordan Hill is gone - who will GS take or will they trade the pick to the Clips for BD?Chad Ford
I've heard a few rumblings that direction, but c'mon ... are they really letting Monta Ellis draft for them ... please. The Warriors will take whoever they think helps the team the most. I do think Nellie thinks Ellis can play some point, but it won't stop them from taking a guy like Stephen Curry, for example, who can be a combo guy too. D
I totally agree. Nellie will not let him make their draft decision. I also really doubt they'd take back Baron Davis and his ridiculous contract. I'd be really surprised if they don't take a PG, but I'm not holding my breath.
