Earlier this week, Monta Ellis narrowed his list of teams he might play with down to 4. Now it is only one. The Dallas Mavericks signed Ellis today to a 3 year contract that will be worth between $25-$30 million. He was definitely one of the best guards available through free agency. Many teams would of loved to get him, but he wanted some major money. The Mavs hope he will be able to help Dirk out with some scoring, but he has never been known for his defense and he takes alot of bad shots. Still, on any night he is capable of dropping 25-30 points. The Mavs needed someone after striking out on getting Dwight Howard.
