Despite Trade Rumors, Ellis Says He Isn’t Leaving Warriors
The trade rumors have been swirling with Warriors G Monta Ellis(notes), who recently had a public argument with coach Don Nelson. But Ellis told the San Francisco Chronicle he’s committed to the Warriors."I don’t have a problem with Coach and Coach doesn’t have a problem with me," Ellis said. "We’re just going out there and doing what we have to do to win: come together."
Nelson said he wants Ellis on his roster, and said that even if there was a rift, it wouldn’t necessarily be a huge deal.
"I’m basically coaching the games right now, and (the assistants) are coaching the practices," Nelson said. "I’m coaching the coaches. I don’t coach the players as much."
