Monta Ellis has a $11 million player option for the 2013-14 season. If he wishes, he may decline the option and become an unrestricted free agent.
Ellis has shown signs of unhappiness in Milwaukee. Despite his poor shooting from the field, Ellis is having a solid season. He is averaging 18.1 points, 5.4 assists and 2 steals per game.
When asked about becoming a potential free agent in an interview with JSOnline, Ellis responded saying, “I’m not thinking about that.. Right now I’m under contract with the Milwaukee Bucks until otherwise. I’m just trying to play basketball, that’s it.”
