Default Re: Bucks/Warriors trade: Monta Ellis, Udoh, Kwame for Bogut, S-Jax

Curry/Sjax/Wright/Lee/Bogut is easily an above average starting 5 when healthy

Bucks have struggled with scoring, and although a Jennings/Ellis backcourt raises eyebrows being undersized and high-usage, i think it'll work out alright for the short-term. Ellis has a very manageable contract for a guy that puts up those numbers, and if they do trade Jennings, he's a good guy to fall back on. Udoh is a nice project to work on, and totally a Scott Skiles kind of player. Kwame will be a good fill-in for the season and is coming off the books anyway.

with a bench of

will make the playoffs

I think our starting five will look more like this...

Jennings/Ellis/Mbah a Moute/Ilyasova/Gooden

Defino and Dunleavy will provide a scoring punch off the bench when Ellis/Jennings need a breather.

Kwame is out for most of the season, I believe. My guess is he'll never suit up as a Buck which is fine with me.

I have no idea what to expect. This could take us as high as the 6 seed....or we could end up missing the playoffs. It's too early to tell.
