View Full Version : Free Agent Idea - Monta Ellis???

07-14-2008, 12:43 PM
First of all, this is my first thread that I've started so im sure its not where it needs to be. So with that out of the way I'd like to throw this out there.
Monta Ellis from what I can tell is a Free Agent and a name that kinda flies under the radar a little bit. Here is his numbers from last year. He could be a Great third scoring option!!

2007-08 Statistics
PPG 20.2
RPG 5.00
APG 3.9
EFF + 20.51

I would love to see this guy in a Rockets uniform. Does anyone know what kind of money he is looking for? Maybe MLE kind of money? If we signed Monta Ellis, that would make Brooks expendable. Knowing that, we could definitely package Brooks/Battier/Head in a trade with Sacramento for Artest. What do yall think? That would make our starting 5 as follows, and a SCARY starting 5 that would be. Solid scoring at all positions not to mention the Defense would stay up to Rockets expectations.

Starting 5
Ellis - pg
Tmac - sg
Scola - pf
Artest - sf
Yao - c

I believe he is looking for something bigger than MLE, probably 8-10Mil.
