Notes: 2009: Selected by Minnesota in 1st round (28th overall) of the NBA Draft...2012: Traded to Memphis for Dante Cunningham, July 24th...2013: Traded to Cleveland in a four-player trade, Jan. 22nd; Signed with Dallas to a two-year deal worth $5 million, July 26th...2014: Traded to NY Knicks in a six-player deal, June 25th; Traded to Sacramento in a four-player deal, Aug. 6th.
A key member of the North Carolina team that captured the National Championship in 2009...Ellington decided to skip his senior season with the Tar Heels and enter this draft...Averaged 16.6 ppg as a sophomore and 15.8 ppg as a junior, impressive numbers considering the wealth of talent that surrounded him...Ellington is one on the truly elite shooters in this draft class, and at 6-5 he has the height to get his shot off over aggressive
defenders...Is a tremendous teammate who is more than willing to be a steady contributor rather than the go-to guy...Is a reliable free throw shooter...Is not an explosive athlete like many NBA shooting guards...Needs to add some bulk to his frame...Does not finish in traffic with much success.
