NBA Free Agency: Ellis and Dalembert Dallas-bound + Oden Leaning Spurs or Heat?


Monta Ellis is finally getting his. In Dallas.

ESPN’S Marc Stein is reporting (via Twitter) that the Dallas Mavericks and free agent guard Monta Ellis have agreed on a three-year deal that “could be worth up to $30 million.”

Ellis had also been rumored to Atlanta, Sacramento and Milwaukee during this free agency period. Dallas signed Jose Calderon earlier this FA period for 4-years, $29 million.

Also, according to Stein, “The Mavs had all-day meetings Thursday with free-agent center Samuel Dalembert culminating in dinner with team officials. Sides still negotiating”



Stein reported on Friday morning that the Cavs were officially out of the Greg Oden sweepstakes, after agreeing to terms with Andrew Bynum.

In addition, he mention that the San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat were the leaders in the clubhouse at the moment for the injury-plagued center. During the past week — after losing out on Dwight Howard AND Andrew Bynum — the Mavs have entered themselves in the race for Oden. But again, that specific race is being led by the Spurs and Heat at the time being.
