According to ESPN’s Marc Stein, the Milwaukee Bucks would reportedly rather re-sign Monta Ellis over Brandon Jennings this summer, citing their preference for an Ellis-Redick backcourt as the reason.
And a free-agent rumble: There’s a rising belief in exec circles that Bucks prefer to re-sign Monta Ellis over Brandon Jennings this summer.
Monta will become an unrestricted free agent July 1 if he opts out of his current deal by June 20. Jennings will be a restricted free agent.
Bucks still have coaching choice to make: Larry Drew or Kelvin Sampson. But in backcourt there is sense they prefer Monta/Redick next season.
