It's the offseason, which means everyone has their own brilliant plan for turning around the Bucks. And while I'm not normally big on dreaming up trade scenarios, the question of what to do with the Brandon Jennings / Monta Ellis backcourt is one that has many of us thinking long and hard. In this case, it inspired Dave Deckard and I to do a piece over at Blazers Edge debating a possible deal swapping Monta Ellis for the #11 pick and former Marquette star Wes Matthews.
On a recent podcast Steve and I discussed why we see Jennings as the more useful building block, but that still leaves open the question of what to do with Ellis (and his likely expiring contract) and how to reconcile any move with the Bucks' obvious priority of winning in the short term. In other words, many of us might love to swap Ellis for a lottery pick, but first you need a) a team willing to swap its pick for Ellis and b) a deal that satisfies the Bucks' challenging requirements. Let's hear your ideas in the comments.
