That would make a him a dynamite sixth man on a team pushing for a title, but how many championship contenders are willing to give up much of anything in a trade for a sixth man?
I can tell you one possibility that could be intriguing to you though: Monta + Larry Sanders for Javale McGee. McGee is a knucklehead in a long term deal, but he's a 7 foot athlete that would help your center situation. And Denver might want to take on Monta to push their level up and help their SG situation.
I consider Sanders a better prospect than Javale, so I'd pass on this deal.
At this point, I'll send Ellis for whatever the best young player or pick is.
