Bottom line: Rod Thorn would leap from his seat to OK that deal, and Doug Collins would set a pick to free up Thorn to get to the desk.
[...] the "news" of Golden State "considering" this deal sent about a half-dozen teams to the phone to make better offers for Ellis. Because a lot of teams can better that offer.
The bottom line is Ellis is a relative bargain at $11 million for each of the next three seasons who would be a terrific addition for a teams like Orlando and Milwaukee — defensive-minded squads that need a cold-hearted scorer at crunch time.
The Sixers could use Ellis, but Iguodala alone isn’t going to cut it.
