Good news, but it was pretty much never a question that he was staying.

I think 11 mil a year average is a fair price for him. Good job Mullin, get to work on Biedrins!

Would've been better at 10 Mil/Year for 4 or 5 years. But still good news.

Monta Ellis is a stud and is the best player on our team. It might hurt him to be moved to pg, but Monta has proven himself to be a stud so why can with give him the credit that he deserves to play pg. :clap::clap::clap::D:cool:. Without Monta the warriors are one of the 5 worst teams in western conference if not in the bottom 3. great signing by Mullen. Monta will **** on the competition next season

Thats a great price for Monta. Not too greedy. Its a solid contract. See I like guys like Monta Ellis and Kevin Martin. Not greedy and 20 point scorers. Now people like Luol Deng and Emeka Okafor are just greedy. They both want 13-15 million. Anyway, great job signing Monta Ellis.

The Warriors signed free agent guard Monta Ellis on Thursday.
The deal is reportedly for six years and $66 million according to an NBA insider. He's now the highest paid Warrior and is expected to start at point guard. However, there's a chance that Marcus Williams could end up with the job, moving Ellis to his natural position of shooting guard.

How does this make any sense? So Captain Jack comes off the bench? CMagg doesn't seem to have the biggest ego ever, but I doubt even he would be thrilled with a bench assignment.

Also, JLantern, no love for the Razor? (lol)

Ellis is one of the best finishers in the league. Three years of playing alongside Baron has also helped him improve. He's going to be a star in the league for many years to come. Good job getting him to sign Mullin.

this ruined the little hopes us Heat fans had of getting him lol. even though once Davis left i knew it wasnt going to happen and that there was no way to get Ellis. Hope u guys are able to keep Biedrins too. would make for a nice starting 5.

hahahahah, Razor irritates the hell out of me. the guy loves himself way too much, but talks s-it about other athletes loving themselves (baron comes to mind). plus the fact that he CONSTANTLY says that he called it first that this will be monta's team is driving me crazy. who cares ralph???

have any of y'all heard Damon Bruce's inmitation of Ralph.....Hillarious!!

Anyways- it was a solid signing, I think they got him for a bargain relative to some of the other up and coming gaurds. If anybody thinks they paid a bit much for him, think about it this way..... the last two years this guy has been making about 700G.... so if anything the team owed him retro pay.

Deron Williams $ 17.4 mil a year
Chris Paul $17 mil a year

Monta $11 mil a year.

$6 million savings, if Monta can learn how to get those extra 8 dimes a game.

With the extra $6 Mil and another mil we got Turiaf and Buike. Not a bad signing at all.

You guys are not going to believe this! I'm a die hard pistons fan. I've said for months the Piston's should trade Amir and Stuckey for Monta (as if you guys would even do that) and all of the Detroit fans really believe Stuckey is way better then Monta. What a joke. Ellis is going to be an allstar soon.

Scottie I Agree With You In Both Cases. We Would Never Trade Monta & He'll Be A Allstar This Year

I likw the figures.. I felt this is what he deserved and this is exactly what he was looking for. Im glad this is over with Monta... We now just need to finish it and sign Biedrins to a contract...

Getting tired of all the europe rumors...
