Although Ellenson failed to crack the Pistons’ rotation last season – he played in 19 games and averaged 3.2 points and 2.2 rebounds – he worked hard in the off-season and had an impressive showing in Orlando this summer. “I was able to watch him in the summer league,” Pistons community ambassador Earl Cureton said Wednesday. “He picked up a few pounds (of muscle). Usually, when you’re coming in that young, it takes awhile for your body to develop. He got stronger and more confident. You can definitely see the difference between last year and right now.
Ellenson earned 90 minutes in the Pistons’ final four games of the 2016-17 season, averaging 9.8 points and 7.3 rebounds per game. Now, he’s ready to use his rookie year experiences to his advantage as he heads into his sophomore season. “As a rookie, everything is new,” Ellenson said. “Going into this year, I know what to expect. I feel more comfortable on the court. I’ve always been a confident player. Every play is not going to be brand new. “Going into camp, I’m feeling real confident,” he said. “Now, I have to go compete, because the other guys are going to do the same thing, too.”
