Monta Ellis on the Bulls

I recently saw a link and ESPN rumor central stating that there is a possibility that Monta Ellis could be traded and that got me thinking. I really like Ellis as a shooting guard. I see him as a DWade light (you get the scoring but lose some of the defense, killer instinct and athleticism). I think and Ellis + Rose back court  = scary good. 2 guys who can drop 30+ on any given night, athletic, will improve defensively and young (Ellis is only 24 right now). Plus he's an instant upgrade over Brewer who I like for defense but not so much for a consistent and legitimate offensive threat. I think Brewer was the product of a great system that masked a lot of his flaws (check out this article where they talk about the flex offense and possibly bringing it to chicago http://espn.go.com/blog/truehoop/post/_/id/18622/what-the-chicago-bulls-can-learn-from-the-utah-jazz). 

My question to you the Bulls faithful is do you think Ellis would be a good fit at shooting guard for the Bulls? I'm not so much concerned about if we can get him just do you think it would work out well for the Bulls and ultimately for the growth of Rose? (although if somebody can make it work in the trade machine and posts a link I won't complain)
