Ellis made the jump to the NBA straight from high school and things didn’t look great for him after going 40th overall. But he lasted 12 years in the league and averaged over 20 points (including 25.5 in 2009-10) in three straight seasons and averaged double digits in points 10 different seasons. He was also named the NBA’s Most Improved Player in 2006-07.
