Here is a trade idea that I haven't really seen discussed on GSOM: The Warriors trade Monta Ellis for Andrew Bogut. Realistically, the Bucks wouldn't do this straight up, unless they "had a love jones for Monta Ellis." So I also propose giving them the expiring Vladimir Radmanovic and Brandan Wright contracts and taking back on Corey Maggette's undesirable deal. This would add incentive from the Bucks' point of view, as they already have the 18 million dollar expiring contract of Michael Redd. They would be able to "make a splash this summer."
After swindling the Bucks, we would be short on guards, so I also propose a deal with the Jazz: Lou Amundson for Raja Bell straight up. This would give the Jazz a better 4th big to play than Francisco Elson and would give us a veteran who can play good perimeter D and hit threes. The Jazz would still have enough guards: Deron Williams, Ronnie Price, Earl Watson, and CJ Miles.

The Warriors rotation would look like:
Looks like an improvement to me. Any thoughts?
(Even if you don't like the trade, I hope this post was worthwile for the NBA 2k11 joke)
