how would a sign and trade for ellis work? didn't MIL already sign mayo... why would they want to s&T for hendo? or would we trade hendo just to make room for ellis, fuck

Oh well. Sure would have been nice if there was an ultra athletic, sweet shooting SG available when we were drafting to replace Hendo with...
I'm thinking they want to S&T Hendo for a draft pick (protected 1st) and have room to sign Ellis.
They will S&T Hendo for a draft pick (2nd) and a serviceable replacement.
The only way I send Hendo leaving is if Monta Ellis commits to coming here. And if Monta comes here, this place will erupt, because the tanking will officially be out the window.
Ultimately I expect Hendo to sign a contract for 3 years $15-17M contract, just under $6M a year...I just don't see Monta coming here to play alongside Kemba. I also wouldn't be surprised to see Hendo sign the QO and be gone next year.
Personally, I don't see Henderson as much less than Mayo. And if OJ can get $8 million per on a 3 year deal, then Hendo should get at least 6.5 or 7. I'd prefer Henderson to Ellis anyways; I hate Ellis' style and personality. And I still see us with a top 6 pick with Hendo, not so with Ellis.
*Just read through the rest of the thread and if it's true that we can't agree terms with Hendo then I just hope we don't panic. Taylor starting at the 2, with Sessions seeing 15ish mins there and a young SG with some promise (+ Gordon if absolutely necessary) is far better than overpaying for Ellis or his like. I'd rather see us do nothing than sign the wrong guy for too much $/too many years.
