Bucks To Discuss Extension With Monta

Image

The Bucks plan to engage Monta Ellis on extension talks during the offseason.

"We are going to talk to Monta about doing an extension this summer," said John Hammond. "We would love to keep him."

Ellis was acquired by Milwaukee along with Ekpe Udoh and Kwame Brown ahead of the trade deadline for Andrew Bogut and Stephen Jackson.

Monta Ellis Maintaining Focus On Bucks' Season

Postby Kobe8Fan on Tue Mar 12, 2013 10:48 pm

Monta Ellis Maintaining Focus On Bucks' Season

Image

By Charles F. Gardner of the Journal Sentinel

St. Francis - Monta Ellis says he's not thinking about his contract or where he will be next season.

And the Milwaukee Bucks clearly hope that's the case.

The Bucks need Ellis playing at a high level if they want to hold their current eighth playoff position or move up a notch or two in the final 33 games of the NBA season.

That's why there was so much talk about Ellis' on-court demeanor Saturday night, when he took nine shots and scored just eight points in the Bucks' 105-100 home loss to the Detroit Pistons.

Ellis' body language seemed to signal a certain unhappiness or discontent.

But the Bucks shooting guard insisted after practice Sunday that he is fully committed to the team's success.

"I go out and play hard every night," Ellis said. "I do whatever it takes to help my team win. I don't know why people are doubting that or whatever.

"I still go out every night and play hard, try to do whatever I can to help my team win, even if it's on the offensive end, distributing the ball or on the defensive end.

"You go through things in the NBA. You go through a stretch where you're shooting bad. You go through a stretch where you're losing. You go through a stretch where you're winning.

"You take the bad with the bad, the good with the good and move on to the next one."

Ellis has struggled with his shooting touch. In the last six games he has converted only 36.8% of his attempts, making 32 of 87 field goals. In that same stretch he has hit 20% from beyond the three-point arc (4 of 20).

He shot 6 of 21 in Denver on Tuesday and was 7 of 20 against the New York Knicks on Feb. 1. His best game recently came when he hit 7 of 16 shots and contributed 21 points and 11 assists in a victory over Orlando on Feb. 2.

The Bucks have lost five of their last six and three in a row.

"He's just got to stay aggressive," Bucks coach Jim Boylan said. "There have been discussions. He's not being singled out or anything like that.

"But he's a vital piece of what we do. We need him to play his game. If he does that, we'll live with it, whatever the results are. I believe if he plays his game then he will be effective."

Ellis is averaging 5.4 assists and 1.8 steals, both above his career numbers. He is averaging 18.1 points but is shooting 39.8%, nearly six points below his career mark of 45.7%.

This time of the season can be distracting for players, with the NBA all-star break approaching and the trade deadline coming up Feb. 21. The Bucks acquired Ellis at the deadline last season in the deal that sent center Andrew Bogut to Golden State.

Ellis, 27, has an interesting contract situation with an $11 million player option for the 2013-'14 season. That means he could decline the option this summer and become an unrestricted free agent.

"I'm not thinking about that," Ellis said. "Right now I'm under contract with the Milwaukee Bucks until otherwise. I'm just trying to play basketball, that's it."

Following practice, Ellis spoke briefly on the court with Bucks owner Herb Kohl.

Ellis said he knows how much Kohl wants to see the Bucks return to the playoffs.

"That's always been his mentality, to win," Ellis said. "We're going to try to find a way to do that before it's too late."

The Bucks have two home games remaining before the break as they face Washington on Monday night and Philadelphia on Wednesday night.

"From here on out until the end of the season, all the games are critical," Ellis said. "It's not just these two.

"It's always important when any team is trying to get to the playoffs. I know the fans are waiting on it, us as players and the organization are waiting on it. There's bumps in the road that come with it.

"We just have to find our way to overcome those bumps in the road and do whatever it takes to win."

Boylan said he hopes the trade deadline will not affect his team's psyche or preparedness in the next few games.

"I think it's also an excuse," Boylan said of the deadline. "It's an easy thing to hide behind. I understand. These guys are human beings and when they see something may be going on with them in their life, a big change, it can be unsettling.

"But with that said, this is pro sports and we have guys who have been around for a few years. They've been around long enough to know you're always going to be mentioned in a trade. Everybody gets traded.

"Just look at the guys who have been traded from this franchise alone. We traded Kareem (Abdul-Jabbar). We traded Bogut.

"Kevin Garnett got traded (from Minnesota to Boston). Dwight Howard (by Orlando to the Los Angeles Lakers in a four-team deal).

"You're paid to perform. Ninety-five percent of the time, nothing happens. Stay focused and do what you're supposed to do."

Monta Ellis has an $11 million player option for the 13-14 NBA season that he is expected to decline.

Ellis was traded from the Golden State Warriors to the Milwaukee Bucks last March.

Ellis would become an unrestricted free agent.

Monta Ellis May Consider Opting Into $11M Deal

Image

Monta Ellis has long been expected to opt out this offseason, but many teams are now expecting him to give serious consideration to opting into his $11 million deal for the 13-14 NBA season.

Ellis was acquired by the Milwaukee Bucks before last season's trade deadline in a deal for Andrew Bogut.

The Bucks also are preparing for the restricted free agency of Brandon Jennings, along with the unrestricted free agency of J.J. Redick.

He definitely should. 11 million guaranteed is nice. I'm not sure he'd find that on the open market. Then again, he could opt out and he'd DEFINITELY find more than 11 million in guaranteed money. If he opted out right now, he'd find probably 25 million guaranteed at least.

Monta Ellis Likely To Opt Out Of Final Year With Bucks

Postby Kobe8Fan on Thu Apr 18, 2013 11:30 pm

Monta Ellis Likely To Opt Out Of Final Year With Bucks

Image

April 13, 2013 12:22 am • GERY WOELFEL gwoelfel@journaltimes.com

MILWAUKEE — As the Milwaukee Bucks season winds down, it appears Monta Ellis’ days in a Bucks uniform are numbered as well.

At least, that’s the prevailing sentiment of some Ellis acquaintances. They claim Ellis, the Bucks’ potent-scoring guard, has indicated to them that he intends on opting out of his contract after the season and becoming an unrestricted free agent.

Ellis, who has adamantly refused to discuss his future plans, came to the Bucks last March in a major deal with Golden State. In that transaction, the Bucks acquired Ellis, Ekpe Udoh and Kwame Brown in exchange for Andrew Bogut and Stephen Jackson.

In his short tenure with the Bucks, Ellis’ play has wildly fluctuated. He has exhibited brilliance like in a 10-day stretch from Feb. 27 until March 17 when he scored 26 or more points on seven occasions.

He is also averaging 19.3 points a game. That’s the 11th-highest average in the league. The only shooting guards with higher scoring averages are Kobe Bryant (24.6), James Harden (24.3) and Dwyane Wade (21.2).

But Ellis has also had performances where’s he been awful. In a game against Oklahoma City, he went 3 for 17 from the field. In games against Atlanta and Memphis, he went 2 for 14 and 1 for 14, respectively.

Ellis has shot the ball poorly for most of the season. He’s made 41 percent of his field-goal attempts and is a measly 27 percent from 3-point range. Furthermore, the 27-year-old Ellis has been a turnover machine, committing 3.1 a game. He’s had 17 games where he’s had five turnovers or more.

Yet, Ellis contends he’s among the best at his position in the league. Earlier this season, he favorably compared himself to Wade. But if Ellis expects to command Wade-like money ($18.5 million next season), he’s in for a rude awakening this summer.

In conversations with several general managers, not one said they would pay Ellis more than he’s already receiving. That’s $11 million, which is the same amount he would be paid next season if he opted to remain with the Bucks.

But as one general manager noted, it only takes one team to be enamored with Ellis’ explosive scoring abilities and give him a long-term deal in excess of $11 million per season.

Working in Ellis’ favor is that there are nearly a dozen teams that will have ample salary-cap flexibility this season. At least four of them will be in the market for a shooting guard. Those teams are Atlanta (Ellis’ name was prominently mentioned with the Hawks at the trading deadline), Phoenix, Dallas and Minnesota.

There has also been scuttlebutt Ellis would be quite receptive to signing with the Memphis Grizzlies. Ellis has a home outside of Memphis and spends a considerable amount of time there during the offseason.

But the Grizzlies have one of the NBA’s premier defensive shooting guards in Tony Allen who, while being an UFA this summer, is expected to return to the team. More importantly, the Grizzlies have little wiggle room on the cap as they already have guaranteed contracts totaling $60.5 million for next season.

Suffice to say, how Ellis performs in the upcoming Eastern Conference playoffs against Wade and the Miami Heat could go a long way in determining how much money he’ll earn in the years to come ... likely with a team not called the Bucks.

Honestly if I were him I'd opt in and demand a trade.

I don't know that anyone is going to give him 11 million per year this summer. I think he'll probably get a long term offer for a lot less money. Something closer to the 8 million dollar range for 4 years.

Prospective Kings' Owner Interested In Monta Ellis

Image

Monta Ellis has yet to decide if he will opt out of his $11 million deal for the 13-14 NBA season, but he could have one potential suitor in the Sacramento Kings.

A member of the Kings' prospective ownership group has worked on a background check on Ellis as a potential player to sign if Tyreke Evans departs in the offseason.

Evans will be a restricted free agent in the offseason.

Execs: Bucks Prefer To Re-Sign Monta Over Brandon Jennings

And a free-agent rumble: There's a rising belief in exec circles that Bucks prefer to re-sign Monta Ellis over Brandon Jennings this summer


https://twitter.com/ESPNSteinLine/statu ... 5920073728

Marc Stein ‏@ESPNSteinLine

Monta will become an unrestricted free agent July 1 if he opts out of his current deal by June 20. Jennings will be a restricted free agent

Marc Stein ‏@ESPNSteinLine

Bucks still have coaching choice to make: Larry Drew or Kelvin Sampson. But in backcourt there is sense they prefer Monta/Redick next season

Monta Increases Interest In Kings With Mike Malone Hire

Postby Kobe8Fan on Sat Jun 01, 2013 11:40 pm

Monta Increases Interest In Kings With Mike Malone Hire

Image

By Marc J. Spears

The Sacramento Kings' decision to hire Michael Malone as their next head coach should improve their chances of signing guard Monta Ellis in free agency, a league source told Yahoo! Sports.

Ellis plans to opt out of the $11 million final year of his contract with the Bucks to become a free agent this summer, the source said. Ellis became acquainted with Malone, an assistant on Mark Jackson's Golden State Warriors' staff, during his last season in Golden State before he was traded to Milwaukee. During that brief time, Ellis quickly gained a great deal of respect for Malone's basketball IQ and his ability to teach and relate to players.

The Kings were recently purchased by an ownership group led by former Warriors minority owner Vivek Ranadive. Ellis averaged 19.2 points and six assists last season for the Bucks and averaged more than 20 points in each of his last three seasons with the Warriors.

Bucks Offered Two-Year Extension To Monta

Postby Kobe8Fan on Sat Jun 08, 2013 12:01 pm

Bucks Offered Two-Year Extension To Monta

Image

By Charles F. Gardner of the Journal Sentinel

Monta Ellis will take the first step in the Milwaukee Bucks’ free agent dance when he decides whether to opt in for the final year of his contract or become an unrestricted free agent.

Ellis and his agent Jeffrey Fried face a June 20 deadline to make their decision.

Ellis is owed $11 million in the final year of a six-year, $66 million deal he signed while a member of the Golden State Warriors.

But the contract has a player option for the 2013-’14 season and he can choose to end the deal. If he does, Ellis will be a free agent on July 1.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has learned that discussions were held to extend Ellis’ deal with the Bucks but no agreement was reached.

As part of the discussions the Bucks offered the 27-year-old guard a two-year extension through the 2015-’16 season, resulting in a total package of nearly $36 million over three years, according to a source. Ellis would have been required to opt in to get the additional two years on the deal.

That includes the opt-in first year at $11 million, with annual raises bringing the total to $11.8 million in the second year of the deal and $13 million in the final year.

The average salary in the deal would have been about $12 million.

Ellis would have received some protection against injury with a three-year deal while also having the chance to be a free agent at the age of 30. But he may be interested in testing the market now.

Yahoo Sports recently reported that Ellis plans to opt out of his contract and could be interested in the Sacramento Kings, who hired former Golden State assistant Mike Malone as their new coach after undergoing an ownership change.

Ellis worked under Malone’s tutelage in Oakland while playing for the Warriors.

Ellis finished as the Bucks’ leading scorer last season, averaging 19.2 points to go along with 6.0 assists, 3.9 rebounds and 2.1 steals. Ellis played in all 82 games for the first time in his pro career and was the only Bucks player to accomplish the feat last season.

The 6-foot-3 guard ranked 11th in the league in scoring and fourth in steals.

Ellis played both the point guard and shooting guard spots for the Bucks, getting extended time at the point after the Bucks acquired J.J. Redick in a February trade deadline deal with Orlando.

A native of Jackson, Miss., Ellis was acquired by the Bucks in March 2012 in a trade that also brought forward-center Ekpe Udoh to Milwaukee and sent center Andrew Bogut to the Warriors.

Ellis averaged 14.3 points, 5.5 assists and 2.5 steals in four playoff games against Miami as the Bucks were swept in a first-round series.

The Bucks face an unsettled backcourt situation this summer with starting point guard Brandon Jennings becoming a restricted free agent and Redick set to be an unrestricted free agent.

Milwaukee also could look for backcourt help in the June 27 draft and already has worked out several candidates, including Miami point guard Shane Larkin, 19-year-old German point guard Dennis Schroeder, shooting guard Glen Rice Jr. and Michigan shooting guard Tim Hardaway
Jr.

Ellis, who had one year, $11 million left on his contract, will become one of the most coveted free agents on the market this summer.

Sources say the Atlanta Hawks, Dallas Mavericks and the Los Angeles Lakers have interest in Ellis, although the Lakers could get Ellis only via an unlikely sign-and-trade deal.

Ellis, who originally signed a six-year, $66 million deal with the Golden State Warriors, is close with Lakers free agent Dwight Howard. The two have long desired to play together.

If Howard cannot achieve his top goal of playing with Chris Paul, teaming up with Ellis may become an option he would strongly consider.

We can't sign and trade for him. He'd have to come for super cheap now or we'd have to wait until he can be traded after signing his new contract with some other team. If he wanted to come to LA he shouldn't have opted out.

I'd be gone if I was Monta, too. That must suck going from Golden State to Milwaukee in terms of just living; he must want out of there so bad. It also helps that somebody will pony up the cash for him and probably overpay...

CBS Sportsline wrote:As the free-agent negotiatiing period opened Monday morning, the Knicks expressed an interest in pursuing a deal with Bucks shooting guard Monta Ellis, league sources told CBSSports.com.

A union of Ellis and the Knicks is viewed as a longshot, as the Knicks only have the $3.2 million taxpayer mid-level exception available. Ellis just opted out of a deal that would have paid him $11 million next season in Milwaukee.

But Ellis, 27, and his Washington, D.C.-based agent, Jeff Fried, are known to be willing to compromise in order to sign with a contending team. And the Knicks, who face the free-agent loss of sixth man of the year J.R. Smith, would provide ample opportunity for Ellis to showcase his scoring prowess deep into the playoffs.

The Bulls, Spurs, Nuggets and Suns also are among the teams who expressed interest in Ellis as the free-agent negotiating period began Monday at 12:01 a.m. ET, league sources said.

New York already has one deal pending, the acquisition of Raptors center Andrea Bargnani for Marcus Camby, Steve Novak and draft picks. The deal won't be official until July 10.

The Bucks are facing the possible free-agent loss of Ellis and restricted free-agent Brandon Jennings this summer. Unrestricted free agent J.J. Redick has been the subject of sign-and-trade talks, but has had no discussions about staying in Milw

Marc Stein of ESPN wrote:The Atlanta Hawks wanted to trade for Monta Ellis on deadline day in February.

They haven't lost interest, either.

The Hawks, according to NBA front-office sources, have emerged as a serious suitor for Ellis in free agency on top of the deals Atlanta has already struck with former Utah Jazz forward Paul Millsap and returning sharpshooter Kyle Korver.

With the future of restricted free agent point guard Jeff Teague still uncertain, Atlanta has roughly $10 million in available salary-cap space to potentially use on Ellis. Sources say that the Hawks have also given center Andrew Bynum some thought, but all the latest signals suggest that Ellis is the Hawks' top current target.

In the event Atlanta proposes another short-term deal -- as seen with Millsap's two-year, $19 million pact -- its available cap space allows the Hawks to at least offer a healthy annual salary that other teams interested in Ellis would struggle to match. The Denver Nuggets are another team known to covet Ellis, for example, but Denver is said to be shopping veteran guard Andre Miller to try to create enough financial flexibility to make Ellis a competitive offer.

The Dallas Mavericks were another prime suitor for Ellis, but Dallas' decision to bring Hawks free agent Devin Harris back to Big D on a three-year deal worth in excess of $9 million realistically takes the Mavs out of the Ellis hunt. Bynum continues to the Mavs' focus after their deals with Harris and Jose Calderon.

The Milwaukee Bucks will actually have to renounce their rights to Ellis on Wednesday if he hasn't found a new home by the first day teams are officially allowed to execute signings and trades after the lifting of the league's annual moratorium on player business. If Ellis doesn't have a new team by then, Milwaukee would not have the salary-cap space necessary to formally sign O.J. Mayo ($24 million over three years) and Zaza Pachulia ($16 million over three years) without surrendering its rights to Ellis, who opted out of next season's $11 million to become an unrestricted free agent.

The Hawks' trade talks with Milwaukee on deadline day headlined by Josh Smith broke down when the Bucks refused to part with Ellis in the proposed deal.
