To me it would make much more sense to not make a trade and move the roster around.
A roster with Curry and Ellis starting, with Williams and Thompson compeating for backup mins doesn't excit me.
But, with some creativity and moving some pieces around, this roster would excit me:
PG: Ellis, Curry, Lin
SG: Thompson, Williams, Jenkins, Bell
SF: Wright, FA PICK
PF: Lee, Udoh, Amoundson
C: Beans, Tyler, FA PICK
You solve your back court size, problem, even though curry and ellis will probably still see time on the court together, specially 4th quarter. Some people question having Curry coming off the bench, but as much as he is toutted for being our future PG, because of his subpar defense and qiuckness, I think he is better served coming in off the bench as a 6th man.
and if Lee can ever develope a post up game (or maybe tyler down the line can), then you could have at times a lineup like:
Curry, Ellis, Thompson, Wright, Lee
that would be an awesome offensive lineup for when you need to score in a hurry.
And when you need defense:
Ellis, Wright, FA (Battier or Prince), Udoh, Beans or FA(Dalembert).
That is a playoff team.... and a young one with room to get better.
