Monta Ellis Fired His Agent

As his free agency drags on, Monta Ellis has decided to part ways with his longtime agent Jeff Fried. Ellis is reportedly looking to team up with the powerful Dan Fegan. Per ESPN: “Ellis, who opted out of the final year of a six-year, $66 million deal, is frustrated that he has yet to receive a high-paying contract offer. Industry sources expect him to sign with agent Dan Fegan. ‘I only wish Monta and his family the very best,’ Fried said. ‘He is a superstar on the court and a character individual with tremendous integrity off the court.’ As of Tuesday, Ellis was hoping to have a deal in place within the next 36-48 hours. His split with Fried, however, may extend that timetable. Ellis, who averaged 19.2 points and 6.0 assists for Milwaukee last season, has not been offered superstar money thus far. Having rejected a contract extension from the Milwaukee Bucks that would have enabled him to make $36 million over the next three years, he is hoping to make $40 million over four years. But few teams have that much cap space left. Thus, Ellis is hoping for a sign-and-trade deal that may enable him to get close to his desired figure.”

    I don’t think your agent is the reason nobody is throwing stacks at you, Monta…

    His agent may have advised him to opt out because he could get a better deal tho.

    True, but he seems like the kind of player that would have opted out anyway imo

  • Dfrance

    Yeah, I was just playing devils advocate. This is Monta “I’m just as good as a prime DWade” Ellis.

    I’d completely forgotten about him saying that, thats up there with Mario “top 10″ Chalmers

    opting out (of 12 million) and not taking the two year extension at about 12 mill a year = epic fail
