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
