Description: Monta Ellis has agreed to a three-year, $30 million deal with Dallas. SOURCE: ESPN Dallas
Insight: It looks like Ellis would have been better off staying in Milwaukee. The Bucks offered Ellis three years and $36 million about a month ago but he turned it down because he thought he would get better offers. Ellis is replacing O.J. Mayo at shooting guard. Ironically, Mayo signed with Milwaukee, so he'll be filling the void left by Ellis.

Description: Free agent shooting guard Monta Ellis has fired his agent. SOURCE: Chris Broussard, ESPN
Insight: Ellis is having trouble landing a multi-year contract. His best option may have been a three-year, $36 million deal from Milwaukee but he already turned that down. Even if Ellis comes crawling back to them, it's unlikely the Bucks would revisit that offer after already signing O.J. Mayo to replace him.
