Rumor: Warriors Willing to Move Monta Ellis for Bobcats' #8 Pick if Yi's Available's Chad Ford just wrapped up a pre-draft chat that raked in over 11,000 questions. That's more questions than we have about GDubya's decisions during his tenure as President of the U S of A! Anyhow, this should be of interest to Warriors fans and the hundreds of proponents of The Yi Movement:

Todd, Charlotte: Any Bobcats rumblings?  

Chad Ford: I think they'll trade the pick. Heard that Golden State would be willing to move Monta Ellis to here if Yi was still on the board. That would be a good deal for Charlotte. Philly would like to get in. So would the Lakers. Sounds like they'll sell to the highest bidder. If they keep the pick: Brandan Wright.

When the Bobcats are on the clock expect something interesting. Higgy- don't forget your folks!

Also from Ford's chat:

John (Bay Area): How likely is a Yi Jianlian trade to the Warriors? He would be a perfect fit, but I just don't see it happening.  

Chad Ford: They are trying. He would be a perfect fit. David Stern needs to intervene. If he doesn't, Colorado State's Jason Smith, is a very similar player to Yi.

Come on Commissioner Stern! Show your folks in the Bay some love.

Definitely check out Ford's entire chat. It's better than the 2007 NBA Finals! (not that means much)

Are the Bobcats making the right decision if they move their pick as rumored?

99% of rumors never happen, but 99% of them are fun to talk about!
