Jeff Fried Rumors
Monta Ellis is co-represented by Happy Walters of Relativity Sports and longtime agent Jeff Fried, industry sources told RealGM. Ellis had an apparent split with Fried out of frustration in mid-July, before signing a three-year contract with the Dallas Mavericks. Nevertheless, Fried told RealGM that reports of him separating with Ellis are “incorrect.” “Monta and I are together for a lifetime,” Fried said. “He is family to me.”
The Bucks have not yet signed free agents O.J. Mayo, Zaza Pachulia and Carlos Delfino while waiting to sort out the situation with restricted free agent Brandon Jennings and unrestricted free agent Monta Ellis, who has yet to sign with a team. A source confirmed that Ellis fired his longtime agent Jeff Fried and it is thought he will be hiring Dan Fegan, who serves as Dwight Howard’s agent.
