Mavs Add Ellis

DALLAS (July 13, 2013) -- The Dallas Mavericks have made their biggest free agent play in a busy offseason, adding shooting guard Monta Ellis to a backcourt that's still crowded even after a couple of setbacks.

Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said in an email Saturday that Ellis has agreed to a contract. It is reportedly a three-year deal valued between $25 million and $30 million.

The deal with Ellis was reached after first-round pick Shane Larkin broke his right ankle in summer league practice Friday. Dallas also reportedly is backing out of a three-year, $9 million deal with Devin Harris because of a toe injury.

Ellis figures to start alongside point guard Jose Calderon, another free agent who signed a four-year, $29 million deal.

The 27-year-old Ellis averaged 19.2 points with Milwaukee last season.
