Default How will Monta Ellis do for Mavs?

The combination of playing with Dirk Nowitzki and having the benefit of coach Rick Carlisle’s creativity offensively could be exactly what Ellis needs to become a more efficient player — which is pretty much the only thing standing between him and all-star status.

“We think that in our system, Monta can really bloom,” owner Mark Cuban said. “He has superstar potential. It will be fun to see how much his game grows under Rick and playing next to Dirk and a pass-first point guard like Jose [Calderon].”

The only real knocks on Ellis have been that he is not a good 3-point shooter and he gambles too much on the defensive end of the floor, resulting in a lot of steals, but too often giving opponents easy looks at the basket.

Ellis (6-3, 185) is an eight-year veteran guard with career averages of 19.4 points, 4.7 assists, 3.7 rebounds, 1.7 steals and 36.0 minutes in 516 games (437 starts) with Golden State and Milwaukee. In 2007, he was named the NBA’s Most Improved Player and has since averaged 19 points or more in each of the past six seasons.

2009-10 was a breakout season for Ellis when he averaged 25.5 points, 5.3 assists, 4.0 rebounds and 2.2 steals in 41.4 minutes per game with Golden State. On March 13, 2012, Ellis was traded to Milwaukee, along with Ekpe Udoh and Kwame Brown, in exchange for Andrew Bogut and Stephen Jackson ending his nearly seven-year tenure with the Warriors.
