And how’s this for irony: The Warriors host the Bucks on Friday.
Ellis, obviously, has previously been linked to trade scenarios sending him to Orlando. But instead he’ll be heading to Milwaukee where he’ll be part of a dynamic backcourt along with Brandon Jennings. Udoh, who can also fill in at center, gives the Bucks a young big man with plenty of upside.
With the Bucks hanging around on fringe of the East’s playoff picture, both players will give the team a serious boost that it wouldn’t have otherwise gotten with Bogut out for possibly the rest of the season. And then there’s Kwame Brown, who despite being Kwame Bro...

John Hammonds , the gm of YOUR Milwaukee Bucks, was the executive of the year two years ago. Since then he has been a piece of crap. Last night he got his mojo back in a big way. Expired milk (Bogut) and moldy ass cheese (Stevie Jax) for Monta Ellis, Ekpe Oduh, and an expiring contract (7million!) that belongs to Kwame Brown. (Don’t worry Bucks fans, Kwame is hurt and...
