02:28 PM ET 07.10 | Monta Ellis elected to opt out of the final year of a six-year deal worth $66 million. He has yet to sign with a team, possibly because the offers he is getting don't live up to the expectations he had. That would indicate that the gamble of opting out failed, and that could make a player angry with his agent. Monta Ellis reportedly fired his agent today.

On the other hand, if he didn't opt out of his final year, he and his expiring contract might have been traded to a team that he doesn't want to play for

And then if he took the extension he'd be stuck with Jennings... they had to take a gamble but I think his agent could have done a better job of forecasting what would be available and secure him something quickly..... freakin Tyreke Evans gets 44 mil... drunky JR Smith is smiling to the bank... yet Mont Moped Ellis has zero?

Its his game not the agent that is the problem. Ellis wants star money and some desperate team may give him but his value as a player will go up when he accepts that he is not worth big money. He would be great off a contenders bench to provide scoring every night.
