Report: Magic In Talks To Acquire Warriors' Monta Ellis
A late-breaking rumor has the Orlando Magic and Golden State Warriors working on a major trade -- but no, not that major. The centerpiece of this deal would be not Dwight Howard, but rather Warriors high-scoring guard Monta Ellis.
According to Alex Kennedy of HoopsWorld, the deal being discussed is a three-teamer, including the New Orleans Hornets as well, that would send Ellis to Orlando:

Ellis is one of the players on Howard's wish list, meaning GM Otis Smith and the Magic are making a concerted effort to bring more talent to Orlando and convince Howard to stay.
