"3. Take it or leave it: Monta Ellis.
Abbott: Leave it. Walking proof that a high points-per-game total does not equal high productivity. Also, and I realize I'm digging in the archives for this, but: Explain that moped injury to me again?
Harper: Leave it? I keep wanting to think if you found a way to pair Monta and Dwight Howard, Ellis would find a way to be really incredible for a team. He can't be the best guy on the floor but can be the best scorer, if that makes sense. If Monta is the best guy on the team, I'll leave it every time.
Huq: Take it, depending on the circumstances. Are there mopeds coming back in the deal, and do we have a point guard? Ellis is one of the most explosive scorers in the league but also one of the game's most erratic players. I want him, but only if I already have a 1 I can trust to keep things under control.
Schmidt: Leave it. There is no way he can be as good as his scoring numbers indicate, and that's going to create an issue on a good team. In a perfect world, he's essentially the Lou Williams on a contender. After scoring 20-plus and getting almost 40 minutes a night all these years, that probably will take too much getting used to for him.
Wade: Leave it. Monta can flat score, and that is a great asset. But I think the Warriors will want more than he's worth. If a deal took only picks, expiring deals and some youth with upside, sure. But with new owners, Mark Jackson talking playoffs and Steph Curry in tow, they're in a position where I wouldn't know what to offer.
