article imageNBA News - Monta Ellis will become a free agent

By Larry Seely     Jun 17, 2013 in Sports
Milwaukee - Monta Eliis has become the latest NBA player to opt out of the final year of his contract and will become a free agent on July 1.
The 27 year-old guard is one of the best offensive players in the league, but he was never happy after a trade to the Milwaukee Bucks in the middle of the 2011-12 season and recent reports have Ellis looking to resume his career in Dallas or Atlanta.
Milwaukee was due to pay the young shooting guard $11 million next season and even offered a 3 year extension worth $36 million, but with a new coaching staff in place and his unhappiness of playing in the Midwest, he will now get the opportunity to take his skills elsewhere.
Ellis has averaged over 19 points and nearly five assists per game in his eight years in the league and with the All-Star guard just hitting his prime, teams from all around the league will try to acquire his services this summer.
ESPN has reported that a move to play with friend Dwight Howard, who is also a free agent could happen, but finding a team that has the salary cap space to add two superstars might be tough, but that is becoming the trend in the NBA for players looking to win a ring, but still make what they believe they are worth.
