ST. FRANCIS, Wis. -- Monta Ellis will be an unrestricted free agent July 1 after informing the Milwaukee Bucks he is opting out of the final year of his contract.

Ellis had an $11 million option for the upcoming season. But he told the Bucks on Monday that he would not be exercising it.

Ellis was Milwaukee's leading scorer with 19.2 points per game last season, his only full season with the Bucks. He also led the team in minutes (37.5 per game), and was the only Milwaukee player to appear in all 82 games.

Ellis has averaged 19.4 points and 4.7 assists in his eight-year career, the first six-plus seasons of which was spent with Golden State.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel was the first to report Ellis' decision.
