Monta Ellis didn't get the money he wanted in free agency, but he can test the market again in two years if he desires.
Ellis' contract includes a player option for the third season, according to ShamSports.com, an invaluable resource for NBA contractual and salary-cap details.
The deal is worth a total of $25.08 million over three years. Ellis will be paid $8 million in 2013-14, $8.36 million in 2014-15 and has the option of being paid $8.72 million in 2015-16.
Ellis declined a player option that would have paid him $11 million to stay in Milwaukee next season. He also turned down a three-year, $36 million extension offer from the Bucks. He was hoping to land a four-year, $40 million deal in free agency but settled for a significantly lower offer from Dallas.
Center Samuel Dalembert's two-year deal, $7.57 million deal is partially guaranteed for the second season. Dalembert will make $3.7 million in 2013-14 and is guaranteed $1.8 million of his $3.87 million salary in 2014-15.
