Found August 28, 2013 on RealGM:
Monta Ellis is co-represented by Happy Walters of Relativity Sports and longtime agent Jeff Fried, industry sources told RealGM. Ellis had an apparent split with Fried out of frustration in mid-July, before signing a three-year contract with the Dallas Mavericks. Nevertheless, Fried told RealGM that reports of him separating with Ellis are “incorrect.” “Monta and I are together for a lifetime,” Fried said. “He is family to me.” After averaging 19.2 points and six assists for the Milwaukee Bucks last season, Ellis was pursued by a handful of teams in both outright signing and sign-and-trade scenarios. He’s been with Fried throughout his professional career, and the agent negotiated a long-term $67 million deal with the Golden State Warriors in 2008. Relativity Sports has established itself as a strong negotiating and marketing agency. A 6-foot-3 two guard, Ellis, 27, has averaged 19.4 points and nearly five assists over eight seasons in the NBA.
