As far as his own quest in fulfilling his championship dreams, Ellis heeded the advice of the same man who gave him his first NBA break. Mullin had called the 10-year veteran weeks ago while he was mulling his options as an unrestricted free agent with more than a few teams showing interest in acquiring his services. “When he gave me the phone call and expressed to me how bad Larry (Bird) wanted me, and what to expect (with the Pacers), out of all the options I had, I just felt like this was the best fit for me,” Ellis said. “Chris always gave me the right advice throughout my career. He spoke very highly of Larry.” Mullin played with Bird on Dream Team in the 1992 Olympics and was also a member of the 1999-2000 Pacers team coached by Bird that went all the way to the NBA Finals.
The Indiana Pacers announced Tuesday they have signed veteran free agent Monta Ellis to a contract. Per club policy terms of the contract were not released. “He’ll be a great addition to our team,” said Pacers President of Basketball Operations Larry Bird. “And he fits our needs for how we want to play. We’re excited to have him. He adds another veteran in our lineup and we think he’ll be a great fit, complementing George Hill in the back court.”
