NBA Trade Rumors: Monta Ellis Trade Talks With Orlando Magic Are Dead

The rumored three-team trade proposal that would land the Milwaukee Bucks' Andrew Bogut on the Golden State Warriors and the Warriors' Monta Ellis on the Orlando Magic will not happen.

According to a tweet from Ken Berger of CBS Sports, Warriors owner Joe Lacob has no interest in the deal.

The Orlando Magic have worked feverishly to try to add a piece or two to their team to try to convince Magic center Dwight Howard to stay for at least another year. Ellis is one of their primary targets but that option is now gone.

The NBA trade deadline is on Thursday so it won't be long before we know the fates of the likes of Ellis, Bogut and the biggest fish in the sea, Howard. Ellis has been surrounded by rumors the past couple of years as the Ellis-Stephen Curry experiment in the Warriors backcourt hasn't produced the results the team would like.
