I hear that there are many Monta Ellis rumors. I would say at this point they are just rumors. Some of them don’t make sense to me. I don’t see the Hawks using much of their remaining cap space on one player - but I could be wrong. I’m also not sure that Jeff Teague going to the Bucks in a trade could happen. Stay tuned on those fronts. Atlanta Journal-Constitution

The Hawks, according to NBA front-office sources, have emerged as a serious suitor for Ellis in free agency on top of the deals Atlanta has already struck with former Utah Jazz forward Paul Millsap and returning sharpshooter Kyle Korver. ESPN.com

Marc J. Spears: Source says Bucks guard Monta Ellis is getting "major interest" from Nuggets, but more teams have also expressed interest in recent hours. Twitter @SpearsNBAYahoo

Ellis has been in several substantial discussions with teams, and some sign-and-trade situations have arose, a source said. Nevertheless, the Nuggets have the capacity to sign Ellis outright, after losing Andre Iguodala to an agreement with the Golden State Warriors on Friday. Organizations interested in Ellis have principally been contenders to make deep playoff runs, with the Nuggets separating themselves as a firm candidate. Ellis led the Milwaukee Bucks in scoring last season, averaging 19.2 points to go with six assists and 2.1 steals a game. RealGM

As the free-agent negotiatiing period opened Monday morning, the Knicks expressed an interest in pursuing a deal with Bucks shooting guard Monta Ellis, league sources told CBSSports.com. A union of Ellis and the Knicks is viewed as a longshot, as the Knicks only have the $3.2 million taxpayer mid-level exception available. Ellis just opted out of a deal that would have paid him $11 million next season in Milwaukee. CBSSports.com

Don't expect Ellis to return to Milwaukee; there's already been a mutual parting of the ways between him and the Bucks, a source told Yahoo! Sports. The Bucks were turned off by Ellis saying the only differences between himself and Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade were All-Star appearances and championships. A source close to Ellis has previously said he would be interested in joining his old Golden State Warriors. Yahoo! Sports
