Lacob: Monta Ellis not moving

Published: June 28, 2011


Monta EllisThere’s been a fair amount of talk this offseason about the Golden State Warriors trading Monta Ellis, a fella who averaged 24.1 points, 5.6 assists, and 3.5 rebounds per game last season.

Warriors CEO and majority owner Joe Lacob told the San Jose Mercury News, though, that the team is not trying to trade Ellis. "We really value him and we want him here," Lacob told the paper. "I think he’s a tremendous player and a unique asset. And it would take a helluva deal that really made sense for the organization as a whole in order for us to trade Monta Ellis. We’re not looking to do that."

Lacob also confirmed that the Houston Rockets and other teams have made offers for 7-0 center Andris Biedrins this offseason. "We don’t feel compelled to necessarily deal him," Lacob told the Mercury News. "He is a guy that was a double-double guy in this league a few years ago. Obviously not playing to that level as of late. I think (new coach) Mark (Jackson) would love a chance to get to work with him. I think we’re going to work with him all summer, if we can."
