BRNC and spec:
Yeah, I don't care for the prospect of Ellis being here, I guess I just like the idea of him on the cheap as an asset as early as this upcoming season's trade deadline...but considering the lack of interest he's getting on the open market, I'm probably wrong in thinking this way.
Whoever we get has to understand this is Kemba's team, and Junior already knows this which is a definite positive, and yeah, I can see Ellis not too hip to the situation. Maybe Ellis figures out that his inefficient style of play and attitude/perception around the league have cost him moolah and he's on his best behavior with us trying to change perceptions, increasing his value? Wishful thinking, I know.
I guess whatever move is best so we have open options at the 2 next season is what I want. Conversely, I don't want Junior on the QO for fear he breaks out and bolts or demands more than we were willing to offer this off-season. Yuck. I don't know. The Jefferson signing was just weird, this is one is a toughie.
