Welcome back Wayne!

Quote:
Wayne Ellington Jr. shot 42.2 percent from three last season in Detroit and is a career 38.2 percent shooter from beyond the arc. Lakers desperately need shooting.

I like this one. Hopefully he doesn't forget to shoot while donning the Laker uni.....again.

I did not like his first stint with us. he was not a team player that year, just stat padding and here for his next contract. No standing up for teammates or cheering

hopefully that will be different this time around

According to this: https://twitter.com/alexmregla/status/1422344156916064266?s=21

Ellington was 21 percentile on 3-pt shot selection, meaning he took difficult 3s, but he still made 42% of them!

He played 22 MPG last year.

And he will have much better teammates this year.

Lol no way. With the construction of the roster this guy is going to get looks. He also has the ability to put the ball on the floor some.

Could not find much on Wayne's defense, lots on shooting. Did not know he was known to have a "Golden Arm." In any event, from earlier this year, Pistons Coach Casey had some nice remarks about him:

https://www.nba.com/pistons/features/status-upgrade-wayne-ellingtons-golden-arm-goes-platinum-pistons-shooting-star-heats

“I can’t have enough good things to say about Wayne. Not just shooting – defense, he gets after it. He leads with his energy. He’s the one in the huddle talking stops. So many things he brings to the table. More than you could put a finger on.”

Shrug. Could be just propping him up back then as trade bait.

Beef Wellington was our #1 option during the tank commander years. Never forget. I bet he'll look good next to a big 3.

And who does not enjoy a savory beef wellington.

Great pickup by Rob. Great shooter who can open the floor for Russ and Lebron. Welcome to LA.

I really want him to start and take that KCP role. Any chance this happens?

I like the pace change we see from Ellington here navigating around off-ball screens in this floppy action.

He goes from gear 1 -> 2 -> 3 and turns the corner at a smart angle to create more separation from his defender.

Going to be fighting against Bazemore for a starting spot as it currently stands. I think Bazemore has the edge, he even said he expects a big role on the team
