Monta Ellis Re-signed
The Warriors have re-signed guard, Monta Ellis to a mulit-year deal. Though the exact details, it is rumored to be for 6 years and $66M with the 6th year being a team option and I believe there is a player option on the 5th. $11M a year is a lot of money to dish out to a guy that is positionless. His ball handling, passing and decision skills as a point guard are big question marks. His size and defense are big question marks as a shooting guard. This was a mistake for the Warriors, but I guess only time will tell, but you heard it here first. Either Ellis stinks it up or he'll demand a trade in 2 years. I would of much rather have them extend a 5 year $65M to a player like Josh Smith who can probably play some power forward for Nellie. Williams, Jackson, Maggette, Smith, and Biedrins? Looks much better than Ellis, Jackson, Maggette, Harrington and Biedrins.
