Bucks offer Monta Ellis Extension



LINK

quote:

According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Bucks have made a three-year, $36 million offer to their leading scorer this past season.


Ellis hasn't been mentioned much around here, but Jennings and Redick have. Ellis staying means at least one of the other guys, both of whom are attractive (to varying degrees), is going to be moving on.

Teke has been Redick for a while. He would be very nice as a third guard. Has some handle, is sound defensively, can create some offense, obviously play off ball.

I read he already declined the extension. I think the Kings go after Ellis.

36 is a bargain compared to what players like Gordon make.

Were those rumors mentioned before or after the regime change and Malone coming in? I think they came out before so I wonder if they're still relevant.

Bucks are supposedly looking to include Ilyasova in a deal to move up to 3. Wonder if they'd be targeting Burke (fingers crossed) in the event Jennings leaves, or Oladipo/McLemore with Ellis playing the point.

Yeah, that would basically make Jennings a UFA and he might be affordable unless Dallas throws a big offer at him.

It was after the change.

According to ESPN's Marc Stein, new head coach Mike Malone will try to lure shooting guard Monta Ellis away from the Milwaukee Bucks.

Y'all don't like Tyreke Evans? Too expensive? I kinda like him.

TBH, I like him too. He might command to much money though.

Ellis actually isn't THAT inefficient
19.4 PPG
45.6 FG%
77.3 FT%
32.0 3PT%
3.0 REB
4.7 AST
2.8 TO
1.7 STL

Yeah he may be below average at D but he would be excellent as a 6th man(Or a starting 2 if we move EG)

if they move Gordon, i would be quite happy if they got tyreke as his replacement

Oh i agree. He is probably too pricey for the pels, but I think he is perfect as a gunner off the bench. Dell did try to get him his first year in NO, so maybe hes still intrigued?

I dont think he makes sense in Sacramento with Evans, Thomas, Thornton, Jimmer, Salmons already on board.

he'd be an amazing 6th man

but he basically refuses to do that at this point, and as a FA you know he's not going to sign somewhere to do that

Wow. Ilyasova is a good player on a fair contract. They must love Henson and Udoh

re: Bucks offer Monta Ellis Extension


From what I'm reading, they might have to take back a salary as well (Okafor or Ariza?) to move up to #3 as well as llyasova. I wonder who they are targeting. Hopefully not Porter. I just saw a mock with Porter falling to us at 6 (LINK /)..
