Weekend poll: who will lead the Mavericks in scoring on opening night?

So many choiiiiiceeeesssss. Hi. The preseason is mercifully behind us. The regular season is in front of us, and the Mavericks open up against the Spurs (because of course) on Tuesday evening in San Antonio. We've seen throughout the preseason that the Mavericks are more potent than ever on offense. Last season, for the first time in a while, Dirk had a buddy in Monta Ellis who could lead the team in scoring on any given night. But now, with Chandler Parsons joining the fray, and performing very well in preseason -- with the point guards being, well, on point -- with Al-Farouq Aminu...

Why Monta Ellis may pick up next year's player option

To understand why, you have to think outside the numbers. On Wednesday, Monta Ellis not-so-subtly hinted he would pick up his player option for 2015-16 with the Mavericks next offseason in an interview on the Ben and Skin Show. The embattled shooting guard had been beaten down constantly in the years before joining the Mavericks. He was unceremoniously jettisoned from Golden State despite huge seasons; he floundered in a terrible Milwaukee system where he was asked to do too much with too little under a coach who is no longer in the NBA; he was criticized constantly by the media for his...

Monta Ellis (knee) returns to practice

DALLAS – Mavericks guard Monta Ellis returned to practice Monday, only four days after suffering a slight sprain to his left knee. “We started out with the idea that he was just going to do noncontact stuff, but he felt good and wanted to keep going,” coach Rick Carlisle said. “He went through the entire practice, which is great.” Ellis, who declined to comment, prides himself on his durability.

How massive TV deal impacts Monta Ellis, Mavs' future

The massive new TV deal for the NBA should make Dallas Mavericks guard Monta Ellis’ decision next summer much easier. With those billions of TV dollars resulting in a dramatic increase in the salary cap in the summer of 2016, why wouldn’t Ellis opt to wait a year to negotiate a new deal? The final season in the three-year, $25 million contract Ellis signed with the Mavs last summer is a player option. If he performs as well as he did a year ago, Ellis could opt out and ask for a significant raise next summer.

Player Preview: Monta Ellis looks for similar success in his second year

Can Monta have it all again? Monta Ellis surprised a lot of people by turning into a near-elite offensive player last season, but really, maybe this was just the first time he was used correctly. Looking at last year Contrary to what many people said about him, Monta Ellis didn't really change last year. His rejuvenation was eye-opening and one of the stories of the season, but Ellis was the same player moving from a horrendous situation to one that was damn near perfect for him. In Milwaukee two seasons, Ellis was thrown into an offense with little guidance and even fewer players around...
