Bucks look to extend Monta EllisSubmitted: 06/08/2013
Story By ESPN.com

MILWAUKEE - The Milwaukee Bucks, who face an uncertain offseason after a first-round sweep to the Miami Heat and losses in 12 of their last 16 games, are apparently sure about one thing -- their desire to bring back Monta Ellis.

According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Bucks have made a three-year, $36 million offer to their leading scorer this past season.

Ellis holds a player option on his current six-year contract and could become a free agent if he opts out by June 20.

The offer, contingent on Ellis opting in, keeps next season's pay intact but adds $11.8 million for 2014-15 and $13 million for the final year, the Journal Sentinel reported.

The 27-year-old would have otherwise made $11 million in the final year of the contract he signed with the Golden State Warriors, who traded him to the Bucks in a March 2012 deal that sent Andrew Bogut and Stephen Jackson to Golden State.

Ellis led the Bucks with 19.2 points per game in the regular season, his eighth in the NBA after being drafted by the Warriors 40th overall in 2005.

The Bucks advanced to the playoffs for the first time in three years but will not bring back coach Jim Boylan after the swift first-round exit to the Heat and the losing skid that dropped them to the eighth playoff seed.
