Monta Ellis was never close to coming to Kings, says The Bee

New, comments

Jason Jones remains adamant that the Kings and Monta Ellis aren't a thing that is going to happen.

Good morning! All throughout the Monta Ellis saga, one voice has been pretty adamant that the guard wouldn't be coming to the Sacramento Kings: beat writer Jason Jones of The Bee. National reporters have regularly included the Kings as one of the teams in play for Ellis, along with the Mavericks and Hawks. But Jones has consistently reported that nothing was close to happening on that front.

He continued that reporting on Wednesday night.

So there we have it: the local guy says it's not close to happening. Those of us unconvinced Monta is the right move can take solace in that.
