Milwaukee’s main man Monta!

Can the Milwaukee Bucks expect 
to hold on to Monta Ellis long-term?
The Milwaukee Bucks traded former franchise center Andrew Bogut and disgruntled (what’s new?) veteran shooting guard Stephen Jackson to the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday night. In return, they get explosive scorer Monta Ellis as their centerpiece player, not to mention forward Ekpe Udoh and mediocre center Kwame Brown (really Milwaukee?) in the deal.

The Bucks finally parted ways with the oft-injured Bogut, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2005 while also moving an unhappy Jackson, but one question begs to be asked here Bucks fans. How long do you think Ellis will want to stay in mostly freezing Milwaukee after living in sunny California? Not long I suspect. Oh, and now it is the Bucks that will have a full-time ‘small’ backcourt with Ellis and starting point guard Brandon ‘Young Money’ Jennings
