Henry Ellenson, the 6’11” stretch 4 signed without fanfare in July, thinks he’s found a new opportunity with the Brooklyn Nets. The 22-year-old is excited about playing on a two-way contract with the Nets and is ready to make a name for himself as the organization’s next development project. In fact, he says the Nets growing reputation for saving young players’ careers attracted him to Brooklyn. “Expectations, for me, going into this year on a two-way contract, just go into camp, and this is new for me to be on a two-way,” Ellenson said. “I’d say make a name for myself again, be a guy that can step into that 4 spot and be a stretch 4. Try to do the team needs, play well, take everything day by day.”
“There was,” Ellenson said. “I know my agent was talking with the Nets and for me, after, when I got waived at the trade deadline I went home since it was right around All-Star break and I did not know where I was going to be. “The Knicks were the first team to reach out and say ‘hey come along’ so that is why I went there. I signed the 10-day right away and then I knew the Nets were already talking with my agent about if the Knicks don’t pick it up then the Nets would take me but then the Knicks signed me for the rest of the season. You know it is kind of crazy how I finally came across to the other side now to Brooklyn and play for the Nets.”
The Brooklyn Nets have signed forward Henry Ellenson to a two-way contract. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not released. Ellenson (6’11, 245) has played three seasons with the New York Knicks (2019) and the Detroit Pistons (2016-18), appearing in 76 games overall and averaging 4.3 points and 2.5 rebounds in 9.7 minutes per contest. Splitting last season with the Knicks and Pistons, Ellenson appeared in 19 games and averaged 6.0 points and 3.5 rebounds while shooting 44.7 percent (17-of-38) from 3-point range. He also appeared in 31 career games (all starts) for the Grand Rapids Drive of the NBA G League over the past three campaigns, averaging 19.0 points, 9.6 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 34.8 minutes per game.
