Is it just me, or does a trade involving Monta Ellis and Andre Iguodala as the principles make a lot of sense?

Golden State gets a swingman with size that can defend (I don't see the Curry/Ellis backcourt working from a defensive standpoint any time soon), Philly gets an explosive guard that can score.

It something that I have put out there before. I don't think many fans realize how good Ellis and that a swap is a pretty even exchange talent wise.

I totally get it from GS's standpoint.  It's an upgrade (talent wise, IMO) and gives space foe Curry to develop.  Plus, a SLU of Curry-Iggy-??-Lee-Biedrins can compete for a playoff spot.

Philly, I don't get it.  They already have Holiday and Turner as a young backcourt, and you have Louis Williams backing up both guard spots.  If Philly moves Iggy, I think it will be for a big or cap space.

i've seen some trades for iggy to gs and people shoot it down saying gs says no. honestly, a trio of curry, iggy, and lee is a pretty solid young core to have. that would be a huge turn around in rebuilding.

My problem is that Turner is going to have a lot of usage and so is Holliday.  How effective would Ellis be not having the ball much at all?
