View Full Version : Magic looking to trade for Monta Ellis.

03-01-2012, 12:58 AM
"Earlier on Wednesday, Chris Broussard said that the Warriors would be willing to swap Monta Ellis for Brook Lopez, either in a three-team trade that sent Dwight Howard to New Jersey or straight up after the Nets signed Howard as a free agent.

Now, Broussard reports that the Magic are trying to acquire Ellis to play with Howard, but that Golden State might not be interested.

Golden State is willing to listen to the Magic about a potential trade for its shooting guard, but there is little on Orlando's roster that appeals to the Warriors, according to sources.

Thus, the sides are not close to having the parameters of a deal in place. Instead, Orlando will begin looking for other clubs to get involved in a three-or four-team deal that would satisfy the Warriors and bring Ellis to Orlando.

Further, Sam Amick tweets that Warriors owner Joe Lacob wouldn't want to help the Magic keep Howard, who Lacob dreams of acquiring himself."


Thoughts? We've now heard reports of the Magic going after Monta Ellis and Steve Nash. It looks like they're making 1 last effort to upgrading the team to try and convince Dwight to stay.

Poor Magic. I applaud their desperation with two weeks left to the trade deadline, but I just don't see Howard going anywhere via trade. ORL is just grasping at straws now.

And FYI OP, there is a thread about this already in the forum. You should check first before posting. Mods please merge this thread to the current ORL Ellis trade thread.
