Good Place. Good Things. Good Time.

Former Golden State Warrior Monte Ellis Just Wants a Shot

Ask, and you shall receive, Monte Ellis.

The one-time Warrior finished an NBA Texas Two-Step, working out for the Dallas Mavericks and Houston Rockets to prove he still has what it takes to play in the NBA, according to separate reports from The Athletic’s Shams Charania and Alykahn Bijani.

The 35-year-old, who spent the first seven seasons of his career with Golden State, including three with backcourt mate Steph Curry, hasn’t played in the NBA since 2017.

Still,  in an interview last month with  Alder Almo, Ellis said he wanted just wanted a shot

“The only thing I ask for is a look and an opportunity,” said Ellis.

“I still got a lot of gas in the tank. My body is healthy my mind is focused. I could definitely help a playoff team with the skills and the knowledge of the game I have,” said Ellis.

The Brooklyn Nets and Los Angeles Lakers have been on a signing frenzy picking up veteran talent to fill out their rosters, and Ellis believes he could be a valuable asset to a contender.

“I ain’t ask for no, get five million, I’m not asking to get ten million, I’m not asking to get one million. Only thing I’m asking is to get a look.”

Dallas and Houston took up Ellis on his offer and held workouts for the 12-year veteran.

In his last season, with the Indiana Pacers, Ellis averaged 8.5 points,  3.2 assists, 2.8 rebounds, and 1.8 steals.

The six-foot-three shooting guard could add some backcourt depth to the Mavs, who will be expected to make a strong showing in the playoffs behind Luka Doncic and new head coach Jason Kidd.

The Rockets, however, are in rebuilding mode with a lot of young talent, which Ellis could provide some veteran leadership.

It’s been fours years since Ellis put on an NBA jersey and 11 years since his career-high average of  25.5 points.
