Monta Ellis brings scoring to Pacers
Monta Ellis just signed a four-year, $44 million dollar contract with the Indiana Pacers. The deal includes a third year player-option if Ellis wishes to become a free agent again. Ellis opted out of his final season with the Mavericks, leaving $8.7 million on the table. The 29-year-old Ellis also rejected a four-year, $48 million deal from the Sacramento Kings, forgoing an extra $4 million to play in Indiana where he can keep his family closer to home.
Ellis looks to add a scoring punch to the Pacers abysmal offense. Ellis has a career scoring average of 19.3 points per game along with 4.1 assists. The Pacers are hoping to increase the tempo of their offense and Ellis matches this new playstyle perfectly. Ellis’ biggest weakness is his defense but with the combo of George Hill, Paul George on the perimeter, and Roy Hibbert protecting the rim the Pacers can minimize his biggest weakness. Always a threat off the dribble and a proven closer Monta Ellis is exactly what the Pacers need.
