The truth is, Ellis isn't going to bring back a star player. Not many teams are looking for a 6'3 shooting guard. The Warriors need a lot of things in order to win and one of those things is depth. Role players in another one. They don't have have a defender and a strong enough bench. This trade would remedy both issues.
Send Monta Ellis, Charlie Bell and Dorell Wright to the Bucks for Ersan Ilyasova, Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, Drew Gooden and Beno Udrih. I think the Bucks wouldn't mind getting the most out of Stephen Jackson and they could do that by bringing in a player he's familiar with in Ellis. Jennings, Ellis, Jackson, Sanders and Bogut could make a nice line up in the East.
At 24 years old, he still hasn't reached his ceiling. A versatile big that is 6'9 and can play both forward positions. He can handle and pass the ball. He's also a tough player that will play hard-nosed defense.
Luc Richard Mbah a Moute
A rising defensive star in the league that wants to guard opposing team's star SGs and SFs. He reminds me of a Bruce Bowen type player which is exactly what this team needs.
A local product that will come in and rebound the ball at a good rate. Adds some toughness to the front court as well.
A more than capable back up to Stephen Curry and will insure that Steph won't have to play 40 minutes a game. The scoring will still come from Curry, Lee and now Thompson.
Warriors Line up:
PG Stephen Curry - Beno Udrih - Jeremy Lin
SG Klay Thompson - Reggie Williams
SF Luc Mbah a Moute - Erson Ilyasova
PF David Lee - Drew Gooden - Lou Amundson
C Ekpe Udoh - Andris Biedrins - Jeremy Tyler

That team wont win. Too many unproven players, there isn't an answer for Monta's points. Udoh isn't a 5 and will never be at 6'9". Monta isn't going anywhere for the same reason you are conceding to grab projects and role players for him - we aren't going to get a star back for him.

I agree, both points...
Not worth a new thread, since it's the same proposal - merged.

quality over quantity. trading Ellis for scrubs would be going backwards.
