The Dallas Mavericks have announced they have signed guard Monta Ellis on a three-year deal.

According to reports Ellis' contract is said to be worth between $25-30 million depending on incentives.

The ex-Milwuake Bucks' star averaged 19.2 points and 6.0 assists in 82 games last season, and offers the Mavericks a genuine point-scoring alternative to compliment leading star Dirk Nowitzki.

The 27-year-old, who has eight years experience in the NBA with the Golden State Warriors as well as the Bucks, follows Jose Calderon, who also committed to Dallas recently.

He was named the NBA’s Most Improved Player in 2007 after emerging as the 40th draft pick back in 2005.

According to CBS Sports, the Mavs actually came to a verbal agreement with the free agent two weeks ago, but the deal was held up as specifics of his contract were ironed out.

Ellis is expected to star at shooting guard next season and should flourish alongside the likes of Nowitski and Calderon.
