Milwaukee Bucks guard Monta Ellis will opt out of the final year of his contract with the Bucks, according to multiple reports. Ellis will surrender the $11 million he would've been owed in 2014 and will become an unrestricted free-agent.

Ellis rejected a two-year extension worth $36 million from the Bucks last week before deciding to forego his final year of the six-year, $66 million deal Ellis signed in 2008 with the Golden State Warriors. Ellis was traded to the Bucks as a part of a multi-player deal involving Andrew Bogut in 2012.

GOLLIVER: Green sets threes record in Finals

Ellis scored 19.2 points-per-game on 41.6 percent shooting with six assists a contest for the Bucks in 2012-13. The 27-year-old is reported to have garnered interest from the Atlanta Hawks, Dallas Mavericks and Los Angeles Lakers.
