Monta Ellis is still searching for a place to call home for next season.  He has narrowed his search down to four teams according to ESPN’s Chris Broussard.

Ellis has pared his list to the Atlanta Hawks, Sacramento Kings, Dallas Mavericks and Charlotte Bobcats.

Ellis just came off of a season in which he averaged 19.2 points, 3.9 rebounds and 6 assists per game for the Milwaukee Bucks.  The 6-foot-3 inch guard is very explosive and can get to the rim in a blink of an eye.  He has proven to be a leader for the Milwaukee Bukcs and now looks for greener pastures as he previously turned down a contract extension offer from Milwaukee last season that would have paid him $36 million in the next three years, he is hoping to land a deal in that price range.

For the teams in the hunt for Ellis, they would have to make some decisions in order to get the number just right around what he is looking for.
