The guard's agent, Jeff Fried, said Wednesday the decision "wasn't about Dallas as much as it was about what's best for Monta."
Analysis: Ellis was set to make $8.7 million in the final year of a three-year, $25 million contract. Fried didn't rule out a return to Dallas, but the Mavericks are expected to make a push for either All-Star forward LaMarcus Aldridge or center DeAndre Jordan in free agency. The 29-year-old Ellis led Dallas at 18.9 points per game last season. He is one of three starters headed to free agency along with point guard Rajon Rondo, who won't return, and center Tyson Chandler.

Analysis: Ellis had been listed as doubtful with a lower right leg injury. The veteran guard is averaging 19.1 points, 4.2 assists and a team high 1.92 steals. He needs 10 points to hit 13,000 for his career and 10 field goals to reach 5,000 in his career.
Mar. 25 9:21 PM PT10:21 PM MT11:21 PM CT12:21 AM ET4:21 GMT12:21 9:21 PM MST11:21 PM EST8:21 UAE05:210:21 ET10:21 PM CT3:21 - Ellis matched his season high with 38 points in the Mavericks' 101-94 win over San Antonio on Tuesday.

Mar. 23 10:06 PM PT11:06 PM MT12:06 AM CT1:06 AM ET5:06 GMT13:06 10:06 PM MST12:06 AM EST9:06 UAE06:061:06 ET11:06 PM CT4:06 - Ellis really struggled Sunday, finishing with 11 points on 4-of-22 shooting in a loss at Phoenix.

Mar. 8 8:12 PM PT9:12 PM MT10:12 PM CT11:12 PM ET3:12 GMT11:12 8:12 PM MST10:12 PM EST7:12 UAE (+1)04:1223:12 ET9:12 PM CT2:12 - Ellis got hot in the second half Sunday, finishing with 31 points and five 3-pointers in a win over the Lakers.

Analysis: It wasn't clear when Ellis was injured early in the first quarter of Monday's loss to the Los Angeles Clippers. He left with 8:03 remaining and didn't return. The presence of the Mavericks' leading scorer was a boost since they knew they would be without center Tyson Chandler (ankle) and point guard Rajon Rondo (orbital bone).
