Mark Jackson was asked on Thursday how the Golden State Warriors' trade of Monta Ellis for Andrew Bogut, which created more opportunities for Klay Thompson.
“It helped change the culture," said Jackson. :Obviously it was easier to pull the trigger because we knew what we had in Klay and it was time for him to be a starting two-guard. And he does everything right.”
Jackson was asked for anything specific in how the trade helped change the culture.
"You know," said Jackson.
Jackson called Ellis the third best shooting guard in the NBA when he was hired.
