Monta Ellis says he had to do "60 percent of everything" in Golden State and Milwaukee. Since the new Dallas Mavericks guard might use that to explain why he shot an alarmingly low 29% on three-pointers last season he's about to find out if a little help will make any difference. That's because new backcourt mate Jose Calderon wants to be the facilitator for Ellis and everyone else on a roster that is going through its third makeover in as many seasons. Ellis and Calderon were among seven free agents introduced in Dallas on Thursday. The list included Devin Harris the former University of Wisconsin star who started his career in Dallas as a top-five pick nine years ago. Ellis made the playoffs in his only full season with Milwaukee. He matched his career low by shooting 42% and his scoring average dropped for the third straight season. The Bucks were swept by Miami in the first round. "When you're in a place where you're unhappy it's very hard to perform to your best ability" said Ellis declining to discuss his time with the Bucks in more detail by saying he "left it in Milwaukee." "So this is a new beginning a new fresh start better organization better teammates" he said.
