Two points caught my eye: * "This is not the first time he's [Stephen Jackson] asked for a trade, and the Warriors seem to be unwilling to entertain the idea, but if they wanted to trade him there are plenty of teams who would be interested. He'd be an excellent fit in Dallas, but the Mavs would almost certainly have to send Josh Howard to Oakland to make that work and it might be a lateral move." * "Sources close to the situation in Oakland told HOOPSWORLD recently that there's little chance the Warriors move Ellis, and even less of a chance that they work a deal with Dallas. That being said, they drafted a starting point guard and traded Jamal Crawford in a deal that brought back two reserves in Acie Law and Speedy Claxton. How long will Ellis actually be a Warrior? Odds are, not very long." If you can handle the Mav-ness check out Mavs Moneyball.
