Did the Wizards just give a quarter billion to Monta Ellis?

Look, sometimes the headlines just write themselves. I ran Bradley Beal through my Statistical Doppelgänger Machine, and the first name that popped up: Monta Ellis.

Wizards fans can breathe something of a sigh of relief — the nearly dead-on similarity was for a partial season from Ellis. It was 2011-12 when the Golden State Warriors traded Ellis (and former Wizards great Kwame Brown) to the Milwaukee Bucks for Andrew Bogut.

This article being about the Wizards means that even relief is #SoWizards. While Ellis was the top comp, next on the list was Gilbert Arenas.
