Found July 01, 2013 on Beyond The Buzzer:
Monta Ellis is one of the top shooting guards on the free-agent market who wants to play for a contender and is drawing interest from Mavs, Hawks, Lakers, Bulls and Knicks. Ellis was the Bucks leading scorer in 2012-13, contributing 19.2 points per game along with 6.0 assists and 3.9 rebounds. According to Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today: The Dallas Mavericks and Atlanta Hawks — both teams with significant salary cap space — are two teams who have shown strong interest in Ellis and two teams Ellis has an interest in, according to multiple people with direct knowledge of Ellis’ situation. [...] Other teams have shown interest — such as the Los Angeles Lakers, Chicago Bulls and New York Knicks — but those teams are handcuffed by salary cap restrictions and would need to make other moves in order to accommodate Ellis, who is willing to find common ground between salary and playing for a contender.
