NBAWarriors suspend Ellis 30 games
Golden State suspended injured guard Monta Ellis for 30 games without pay on Saturday for violating his lucrative new contract by getting into a moped accident.
Ellis, who agreed to a six-year deal worth $66 million in July, severely sprained his ankle in a low-speed crash in late August. The suspension will cost the guard slightly less than $3 million.
