Sources: Monta Ellis for Lopez Not Likely
(Monta) Ellis, (David) Lee and (Stephen) Curry are all hearing their names among trade rumors as the March 15 deadline approaches. The Warriors have been active in talks about Ellis, looking for a star in return or considering deals that would package the scoring dynamo with Andris Biedrins’ bad contract.
Warriors sources said there is little to the buzz about dealing Ellis for New Jersey center Brook Lopez. They’re still convincing themselves that they’re in the running for Orlando center Dwight Howard, who has made it abundantly clear that he doesn’t want to play in the Bay Area.
