What is Monta's fate?

1

"INDIANA PACERS – Full Record (20-18) / Since Last Time (10-7) Resolution: Bring Monta Ellis off the bench or trade him. The wheels may already be in motion on this one, with Ellis playing off the bench since returning from injury. However, keeping things that way and making sure everyone is happy is a completely different beast (just ask Knight & the Suns). Ellis’ minutes have taken a dip since the move to the bench and the ego hit to have someone like Glenn Robinson III starting over you would not be easy for anyone. If the Pacers can make this work, then it will be great for their 16/17 playoff aspirations. If they can’t, they need to trade Ellis before he kills his own value."
