Ellis/BogutGetty ImagesThe Bucks boosted their backcourt with Monta Ellis, while Golden State got some D in Andrew Bogut.

There are so many angles to this Andrew Bogut-Monta Ellis trade that it's hard to know where to start: the Golden State Warriors finally breaking up the Ellis-Stephen Curry backcourt and going legit with a true center; Milwaukee going the opposite direction and putting Scott Skiles in charge of a free-wheeling, floor-spacing offensive juggernaut; Cap'n Jack returning to Golden State; and significant collateral damage, potentially, in Utah and New York.
