Wayne Ellington 2018-2019

Recommended Posts

What's the story with this guy? Had a pretty good stretch at the end of November/ early December and since then, nothing. Has he been injured? Did he start the season on IL? Supposedly, Lakers have shown interest in him.

He could have value if he goes to the right team like Detroit. He'll definitely average more than 3 threes a game there playing with Blake and Drummond

Exactly.  Surprised nobody is talking about him.  Let's say he goes to DET, which is very likely considering he just got bought out.  For DET:

 

1.) They moved Bullock and SJ, opening up the 2-3 spots.

2.) They're ranked 28th in 3P%.  Ellington is a 38% career shooter who averaged 2.3 treys in ONLY 21 minutes a night for a crowded MIA backcourt off the bench.

3.) Their current 2-3 spots are held (likely) by Kennard and Brown after the trades, both of whom are inconsistent rookies and not likely to play heavy minutes each.

4.) The Pistons are 1.5 games behind the 7-8th spots in the East for the POs, and they can potentially overtake the Heat or Hornets in order to make a late PO push.

5.) They've got a 4-4-3 PO schedule for Weeks 22-24, one of the best.

 

So anyway...I'm imagining Ellington starting in Bullock's minutes/role; he basically does nothing but shoot, letting Blake/Drummond work down low and stay open for kickouts, since the latter two are excellent passers.  I agree--he'll average about 3-4 treys a game in a good amount of minutes that he didn't have before.  Don't expect much more than treys, but expect a LOT of them.  Looks like a perfect place for him to land.

Definitely agree with Mwon

wayne could be a huge 3 pt specialist since when he has more minutes he shoots and hits a lot of them

DET also has a better PO

 

Per Woj: he’s supposed to get a role that will showcase him for summer FA: so I expect him to get the lions share of minutes? Considering DET isn’t too far out of the PO race

If this guy gets 30 mpg he’s going to be monnnnney especially with that schedule. Do we see this happening?? Rotoworld blurbs are notoriously bad and I think Casey will give him tons of minutes.

Would you guys cut Bullock for Ellington now, not sure how much playtime Bullock will get now in LA, will need replacement for the 3s production

they're saying they plan on starting him. anyone think he has value in a points league going forward?

No not really.  He's pretty much just a scrub specialist. Fine for Roto and category leagues though.
