  • Wayne Ellington - G - Detroit Pistons

    Wayne Ellington led all Pistons reserves with 33 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Celtics and delivered as advertised with 13 points (5-of-12 shooting), three triples, one rebound, one assist and two steals.

    Ellington remains one of the top stream targets for a leg up in the 3-pointers made and is a likely mainstay in teams in leagues 16-deep or bigger. He gobbled up Bruce Brown's minutes (13). The rookie had a pedestrian showing with three points (1-of-3 shooting), one trey, one rebound and one assist.

  • Wayne Ellington - G - Detroit Pistons

    Wayne Ellington will come off the bench in his Pistons debut on Monday.

    Ellington joins Langston Galloway and Luke Kennard in the wing mix for Detroit, and we'd bet on him taking a good chunk of minutes in that position battle. He's got a shot to be an impact 3-point specialist for the rest of the season but we'll need to see what his playing time looks like before declaring him safe for use in 12-team leagues. Beyond that, we'd prefer to see him take minutes from Galloway rather than Kennard, but who knows what Dwane Casey has in mind.

  • Svi Mykhailiuk - F - Detroit Pistons

    Svi Mykhailiuk played nine minutes in Friday’s win over the Knicks and scored three points (a trey) adding two assists and a rebound.

    If the game was closer Mykhailiuk probably wouldn’t even have played. It’ll be tough for the inexperienced rookie to care out a regular role, especially with Wayne Ellington reportedly to sign with the Pistons. Ellington is the wing we’d keep our eyes on as he can hit 3s in bunches.

  • Luke Kennard - G - Detroit Pistons

    Luke Kennard scored 12 points to go with two 3s, three rebounds, three assists and a block in 29 minutes during Friday’s defeat of the visiting Knicks.

    Kennard was listed as the starter prior to the game but was eventually replaced by Langston Galloway. Kennard got 29 minutes to Galloway’s 20 but he hasn’t been able to bring any kind of consistency from the wind this season. With 3-point bomber Wayne Ellington reportedly ready to sign with the Pistons, we’d leave Kennard on waivers and keep an eye on Ellington’s role when he arrives in Detroit.

  • Langston Galloway - G - Detroit Pistons

    Langston Galloway only managed 20 minutes in a spot-start for the departed Reggie Bullock and scored five points with a 3, three assists and a steal in Friday’s win over the Knicks.

    Galloway hasn’t been able to separate himself from the pack when Bullock was a Piston and considering the new additions to the squad, plus the reported soon-to-be signed Wayne Ellington, he can be left on wire. Ellington is the guy to keep your eyes on when he joins the team.

  • Wayne Ellington - G - Detroit Pistons

    Wayne Ellington is close to a deal with the Pistons as of Friday's reports.

    If Ellington lands in Detroit, he's going to step right into the Reggie Bullock mold and has a chance to be an impactful 3-point specialist as the Pistons push for the postseason.

  • Wayne Ellington - G - Phoenix Suns

    The Pistons will be "among the most aggressive teams" in trying to sign Wayne Ellington, per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

    The Pistons could certainly use 3-point shooting for their playoff push, and if they can add Ellington after swapping Reggie Bullock for a longer-term answer in Svi Mykhailiuk then it'll be a net win for Detroit.

  • Wayne Ellington - G - Phoenix Suns

    Wayne Ellington's agent is working with the Suns on getting Ellington waived so he can join a playoff contender.

    Ellington would be a hot commodity on the buyout market as a knockdown 3-point shooter, and there's little doubt that he won't suit up for Phoenix — the only question is whether the Suns try and squeeze some kind of return out of it or just let him walk. This is hardly a surprising development considering Ellington had to waive his no-trade clause to allow the move, and there's no way he would've done so if staying in Phoenix was part of the deal.

  • Wayne Ellington - G - Phoenix Suns

    The Suns have also acquired Wayne Ellington in Wednesday's Tyler Johnson – Ryan Anderson swap.

    Moving out both Johnson and Ellington saves the Heat $5.1 million in salary this year. The initially reported deal had Miami paying more in taxes this year for salary help in the future, but Ellington's inclusion helps them both now and down the line. He's almost a sure thing to be moved again, as the Suns have no use for a veteran 3-point specialist. The Heat have opened up more backcourt minutes for Derrick Jones Jr. and Dion Waiters while saving money as the Suns get a solid combo guard and another asset to flip by Thursday. Sounds like a fair shake for all involved.
