Monta Ellis returns from six-game layoff to face Trail Blazers; Watson in, Turiaf outFiled under: News;
Coach Don Nelson made it official: Monta Ellis will be back and in the starting lineup tonight against Portland for the enjoyment of a national TV audience.
Ellis missed six games because of a sore back, and the Warriors went 1-5 in his absence, losing all five games on their recent Southeastern road trip.
C.J. Watson made it back from his family funeral in time to play, but big man Ronny Turiaf remains sidelined by a sore left knee, leaving Chris Hunter as the team’s lone legitimate center.

W.r.t. the KNBR interview,
I would disagree that GSW should have gone over the cap to hold a 48 win team together. I’m not sure.
Rowell undercutting Mullin did the franchise great harm. His resigning Jackson was the pièce de résistance. If Baron’s attitude was a risk, Jackson was the greater risk ad Rowell resigned him.
Frankly Mullin wasn’t a great GM or that good with the draft. Isiah Thomas had better picks and I suspect if Mullinhad the latitude, he would have done some bone headed deals.
what’s the deal man? how come you are doing the live forum every other other game?

actually the most questionable move was before Baron when they decided to trade Jason Richardson to create enough space away from the luxury tax threshold to sign both Monta Ellis & Andris Biedrins.
at the time (summer or ‘07), it would have made more sense to keep the 06-07 playoff team together & resign Andris than worry about keeping a 6′3″ combo guard.
w/ Jason’s deal still on the books instead of Wrights, they might have extended Baron. Baron, Jason, Jackson, Harrington & Andris would have eventually ended up just like the Wizards w/ their group of Arenas, Butler, Jamison & Haywood… but they could have put together 4 or 5 straight 40 win seasons depending on Baron.
if Baron left, little would probably change. since it probably would have lead to resigning Monta anyway. only difference is Maggette & Wright would be replaced with J. Rich.

Some other guy suggest trading JRich was a move to land MN’s KG. Mullin was dealing for Wright and in a 3 way trade land KG.
JRich was a good guy, not my ideal player but neither was Baron either. I also have mi reservations about MULLIN. The DunMurph, were overpaid in a non-existent bidding war.
It ended for me when Mullin was marginalized. I’m a manager and supervisor so I’m quite sensitive to chain of command and authority / autonomy issues. Mullin’s authority and autonomy as GM was under cut buy a Stooge. That Stooge messed with the Baron signing and then proceeded to resign Jackson.
Troy Murphy might be coming back! Wow between him and David Lee we have the most nonathletic front court in the league
Oh, I forgot Biedrins too. At least Troy is an expiring contract.
actually, there is a rumor that JRick might be coming back too. It’s just like the Warriors to give away their best players in their prime and then take them back when their washed up,
anybody knows what happened to Chris hunter?
We need to give Udoh more PT. He’s showing more than Wright has in 3 years.
Good stuff today!
