Report: Monta Ellis set to opt out of Contract After the Season

According to report courtesy of Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal-Times, the Milwaukee Bucks’ leading scorer Monta Ellis, intends to sacrifice the $11 million he is guaranteed next season in order to secure a long-term deal.

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.

Ellis is in all likelihood not returning to the Bucks. One significant factor that favors Ellis, is the fact that a lot of teams are expected to have cap space in the summer and I’m pretty sure there will be a general manager who will be tempted to give the inefficient, one-dimensional but talented scorer a long term contract.
