After watching the Dallas series it's very evident that the Mavs aren't going to win anything without a legit low post scorer. I was thinking about who they could go after and went to the ESPN Trade Machine with this trade that was successful.
Caron Butler and Ramon Sessions
I think this trade work for all the parties involved. The Wolves are going to need to dump Love or Jefferson in the offseason, and getting Ellis back would be ideal for a team that is lacking a great scorer at the guard spot. Ellis proved he can play well off the ball this year and he would be a good fit next to Flynn. There would be absolutely no Defense at the guard spot for the Wolves but at this point they just need good players and Ellis fits the bill.
The Mavs get one of the premier low post scorers and rebounders in the league. Big Al is coming off surgery so this past season wasn't a true measuring stick for what he can do. With Dirk on the outside I believe Al would get back to averaging a double/double.
The Warriors probably get the worst of this deal but Butler and Sessions both fit into their system and Butler would also give them a decent defensive effort every night.
Thoughts?? Better Trade Ideas??
dont think the wolves would want ellis... and i dont think the warriors would want caron butler and sessions for him...
Ok, I respect your opinion but could you please explain why they wouldn't be interested? I think in the NBA today it's not always about what you wan't but what you can realistically get. I think Ellis would be the highest level of player the Wolves could get back for Jefferson, especially after coming off this horrible season. Butler seemingly is always getting dealt but the Mavs won't trade Beaubois and that would be the only other realistic player they could trade to the Warriors.
My own issue would be do you play Caron Butler at the 2 or 3. Also GSW seem to not want to give up Ellis they could have gotten Mayo and Thabeet for Ellis
forget the warriors, just do jefferson for butler and maybe jj barea ( i want beaubois to get more pt anyways)
