Monta Ellis and the Indiana Pacers have come to terms on a four-year deal that will pay the 29-year old guard $44 million, with a player option in the 4th year.
“Last evening they (Larry Bird and Ellis) had dinner,” agent Jeff Fried said after confirming the contract terms. “Monta who is not a very animated young man, enjoyed it. He just felt the community, the culture of the team represented what he is about — the person who gives it his all on the court.”
