One of the more interesting rumors floating around today is the possibility that Monta Ellis - a Warriors restricted free agent - could land in Miami to play alongside Dwyane Wade, Michael Beasley, and Shawn Marion. Ellis is an incredible talent, perhaps destined to be an All-Star, and may well command more than the Warriors are ultimately willing to match. The Heat are also trying to take care of Ricky Davis, and it's hard to see them getting both deals done. But between the two Ellis would be cheaper . . .and he has a lot more up side. If the Heat can out-bid the Warriors for Ellis' services it may put Davis on the open market, where he should draw plenty of attention.

doesnt this seem really really backwards...

but doesnt it sound wierd... how they mention Davis would cost us more and Davis would be a hot object on the market... its those things that make me highly doubt the whole article...

i agree... and ellis isnt a great shooter. if we find the cap space somewhere Id rather go after smith or okafor or someone like that...

Ellis shot 53.1% from the field last year...You must be refering to his 3 point game...and ya, that article is insane.

^^^Ellis' mid range game is automatic...I rarely saw him shoot 3's but when he did it was money...

tony parker shoots over 50% too, but its mostly on layups... As a shooter Ellis isnt great... but he is dynamic...

But again, We will be in the same situtation with the rose thing! We would have 2 backcourt guys that are athletic but cant shoot the 3s.

Ellis has a great mid range game, I don't know what your talking about.

I'm not saying we should get Ellis, I never have...I'm just saying...

Practice makes perfect and Wades been working on his long range shot...Ellis isn't horrible either, he'll improve...

ya very good midrange shooter! just not great range is all... but my opinion has changed since hearing about brand. Id take ellis in a heartbeat.

I agree...He's more of a shooter than a distributor, and thats why you won't find any posts of mine advocating that he is the answer at point. Not that he isn't a great player, because he is. I'd just rather a pass first point who can hit the three...

he opted out and since he wants to come to miami as we already know... so im excited... just speculation but i wouldnt think he would opt out unless he knew something about a certain S/T to miami...

Hmmm...You think? Makes sense...

So then Beasley would be moved to small forward? I guess if LA is going to lose Maggette, then why not bring in Marion and his fat expiring contract...

ya... i am thinking this... why on earth would he opt out unless he was planning on going to miami. form what i have heard Philly could only offer him 14 mil (not enough) and he wont want to go to memphis... so he must have a solid commitment from somebody that a S/T will happen and my money is on Pat Riley...

Although I don't think Ellis will be a good fit, I'll be very happy if he comes to Miami. He's my top 10 favorite.
