2013 Notable Free Agents

8

22. MONTA ELLIS Ellis, one of the most divisive players in the NBA, has an early termination option for 2013. Ellis would be giving up $11 million to hit free agency at age 27 instead of age 28. The thing is that Ellis can probably get another $11 million annual contract. He's a consistent negative in plus-minus surveys, but he's also averaged more than 20 points and five assists per game in three straight seasons ... and one of those seasons was over 25 points. He recovered fully from the moped escapade, can play a ton of minutes and takes offensive pressure off of all of his teammates. Of course, he's also wildly inefficient and a defensive disaster, so ... someone will pay him $11 million a year, and someone will suffer in the aggregate because he's not worth that much. Would you rather be paying him that much or a healthy Steph Curry?
