Dudley likely has some value to a bunch of smart teams, Ellis has a bunch of value to a small amount of dumb teams.

Like if you wanted to play the "what draft pick are they worth" game, I think Ellis nets you a higher pick (10-15ish?) but there might be only one or two teams willing to offer that. Dudley may be a 15-25ish pick but there would probably be 5-10 teams willing to pay that price.


IMO something close to this. Ellis has the ability to be that 2nd or 3rd "star" on a team. These days, that means a lot.

For example, you take a team that plays good defense, like the Pacers and add on Ellis, while their defense suffers slightly, they now have a guy who they can count on for 20 ppg.

Dudley is a good piece for a team that needs an additional "depth" or a functional piece of a starting 5. Lakers would love to bring him off the bench.

The thing is also this: Dudley has a long contract, and while useful, is viewed as a "role player" Ellis is still in his "prime" and has been considered for all-star teams. Dudley has always been a functional rotation player.

So "more trade value" is handily Ellis in my opinion.

The few teams that are in a position to "buy" Ellis are mostly lame duck teams with enough capspace this offseason to sign him outright anyway. So I doubt any of them would give up a lottery pick to secure him for the next 13 or so weeks.

Dudley is on a long term contract, at about $4-5m per. Given that his production far outweighs s contract, I cannot see how the duration of his deal detracts from his value at all.

Ellis is a free agent this offseason. No one is giving anything of value for him.

He's essentially slightly more valuable than an expiring contract.

Thats kind of the same thing for most teams. So he can pretty much only be traded to a team he wants to play for, unless a team wants to use him as a $11M expiring, but in that case they still wont be giving up anything of value for him.

I'd say Dudley by a lot right now.

Monta desperately needs to hit FA and get a much needed reality check... Odds are he won't get it, and some desperate team will overpay him, make him a #1/#2 option, and the cycle of suck will start anew..

Dudley OTOH you can plug into most lineups as a fringe starter or 20mpg player, and he'll do pretty well.
