DALLAS ESPN is reporting that former Bucks guard Monta Ellis has agreed to a three-year deal with the Dallas Mavericks.

According to the report, Ellis could make as much as $30 million in the deal but more likely around $25 million.

If that is the case, the Bucks and Mavericks basically have swapped shooting guards.

O.J. Mayo, who started all 82 games for Dallas last season, has agreed to a three-year, $24 million deal with the Bucks.

Ellis opted out of the final year of his contract and rejected a two-year extension offer by the Bucks which would have meant nearly $36 million over a three-year period. So he could be taking an $11 million trim, depending on the final terms of his deal with Dallas.

Ellis recently fired longtime agent Jeff Fried and decided to work with veteran agent Dan Fegan.
