Henry Ellenson had another nice game in Sunday’s win, notching nine points and nine rebounds with three longballs.
Ellenson will need to work on his efficiency, as he shot just 3-of-11 tonight. While drawing direct player comparisons is always a dangerous game, there seems to be an infatuation for stretch bigs who can collect rebounds as well. Without naming names, those players tend to get overrated very quickly and end up being over-drafted. If Ellenson carves out a rotation spot next season, he’s looking like a cheap alternative that’s worth a late round flier. He’s one to watch over the summer, particularly if Detroit remakes their roster yet again.
