Monta Ellis to Choose Team - Charlotte Among Them

You know what, Ellis probably won't come to the Bobcats, but nobody knows for sure. The fast that the Bobcats have already landed a big name FA and another one is considering us, really leads me to believe the tides are turning and players might ACTUALLY want to come be a hornet/bobcat.

Rick Bonnell: Regarding ESPN connecting Bobcats and Monta Ellis: Doesn't seem like anything very serious, from what I hear. Twitter @rick_bonnell

Ellis once said he didn't see how he and Steph Curry could thrive in same backcourt. How would that be different paired with Kemba Walker?

Finally, Charlotte, which already has made a big free-agent signing in acquiring Al Jefferson, is waiting on word from their shooting guard, Gerald Henderson. If they are able to retain Henderson, they'll move on from Ellis. If not, the Bobcats may try to move some players in order to create room to sign Ellis.

 

Waiting to hear what exactly?  Hendo isn't supposed to be able to be contacted by any other teams until the moratorium period has ended.  What is he supposed to know that our front office doesn't already?  Not sure about this...

Really?  I think he is solid defending PGs but he looked over-matched every time I saw him defending bigger SGs

 

Well I'm sure part of it was that he had Larry Sanders protecting the paint. mySynergy has Ellis as one of the better team defenders, but struggled a bit one on one (probably mostly because of his PG size). He closed out on shooters pretty well, defended guys coming off screens well, and shut down PnR ballhandlers. I would still say that Henderson is the better overall defensive player (mostly because he is bigger), and Henderson is definitely a more efficient offensive player (although he doesn't have even close to the same track record of volume scoring).

No to the small backcourt idea. It hasn't work since Isiah Thomas and Joe Dumars.
