Bucks are shopping Brandon Jennings by the way.


he would be solid off the bench, question is will he accept it

^ No Ellis doesn't fit this team. We need an athletic wing player that's atleast 6'7.

You crazy? Ellis can play the 1 or the 2. He is one of the best at the basket finishers in the game, we only have one other player that can do that. He can shoot and drive. Think of him as the Jamal Crawford for this team.

No lakers actually need someone who can actually hit open 3's, meeks cant hit open 3's, ellis can. I remember ellis dropping 48points on okc and drawing and 1's against ibaka. Lakers need someone like him.


Monta Ellis, the guy who is shooting 29% from three and is a career 32% shooter?

Ellis is good, but not at shooting.

Meeks is in a slump, he was at 40% before his recent games. People need to stop acting like he is a horrible shooter, he's not

Meeks is doing fine.

Rather have a longer guy who can help out on D and a backup pg.

Yeah, Ellis is not known for being a good 3 point shooter at all.

He would be a great scorer for the second unit, but if we're getting only Ellis we don't really solve any of our glaring problems.

Ellis could start or play off the bench. Meeks could still play.

Do I want Ellis? Yes

Are there a handful of players I'd rather have before him? Yes

He's not first on my list.

We are in the bottom five in the league in bench scoring. We have one guy on our team that can get to the rim and finish on a daily basis. How would he not "solve any of our glaring problems" Ellis is EXACTLY what this team needs.

Name me another guy on that list that averages 20 points 6 assists 4 rebounds and 2 steals or better, and is a realistic player that we can get for Pau. Go ahead take your time.

I know, our bench sucks.

But if we ONLY get Ellis, we're still going to have the same problems on defense which is what is really killing us. Ellis isn't going to help us shoot 3's or play great D. I like Ellis, but if it's a 1 for 1 swap I don't like it.

I think he's fine. What's a bigger issue, backup pg or backup sg? Backup sf or backup sg? We have other needs. I would love to have Ellis, but there are players at other positions who would help us much more.

Please sir would you name me a few that we could actually get for Pau. Because I've seen some people say some stupid shiz that they would take for Pau.

If you're looking for a shooter Mbah Moute wouldn't be your guy. Good defender though

You want a player based on a stat line?

Ellis would be nice, but he's not EXACTLY what this team needs. Kevin Love is a better fit, Iggy is a better fit, Rudy Gay is a better fit.

Is Ellis more realistic? Probably. But don't say he's exactly what this team needs because he's not. Perimeter defense would still be a problem and outside shooting would still be a problem.
