I thought I'd bring this up because Thabeet was sent to the D-League. For those of you who wanted this trade done, hopefully it makes you feel better that the Warriors chose to pass. Essentially since this is almost a Mayo for Ellis trade straight up, with one big potential guy D-Leaguer. Mayo is good, but he no Monta for sure, and I think we had our fair share of Patrick Obryants already.
A lot have people scoffed at the Warriors for passing on this trade. I wouldn't have done it but the more I saw Mayo play in the recent weeks the more it became intriguing. He looks like a solid player. He can get to the hole, has a decent shot, plays defense, and has a good build next for someone to play aside Curry. Still though, I said no. And this is coming from a person who has said since the beginning of the season that Monta needs to bounce. I've always wanted to trade him (only if given enough in return, possible all star or immediate needs filled etc)
We should give the Monta and Stephen experiment at least a whole season. I read in an article, in which I can't seem to find, that this deal will most likely still be in available in the off season. Has anyone heard the same, that the Grizz will still be offering these players?
Does anyone think Curry and Ellis will pan out? Would anyone still look forward to a possible Ellis for Mayo and Thabeet trade? I would say no and no. And no to John Wall too cause the kid has too much hype - I wouldn't want my guard and #1 pick shooting 35% the last 5 games like he is now. I'd hate to be a GM for the Warriors this off season.
