The playoff-fueled Pistons opted to waive Ellenson, who had played only two games with the team this year, on Feb. 9 to make room for recently bought out sharpshooter Wayne Ellington. Ellenson was sleeping when the move went down, waking up to three missed calls from his agent and another from his dad telling him to call his agent back. Suddenly, he was out of the league he worked so hard to get into. “After leaving Detroit, I wasn’t quite sure I was going to go somewhere else,” Ellenson said. “I was lucky I’ve still got teams out there that believe in me.”
“That’s why I came here,” Ellington told the Free Press after Sunday’s victory over the Chicago Bulls. “It wasn’t a decision of, ‘What do I want to do right now?’ If that was the case, I would have just signed with Golden State and try to win a championship real fast. I wanted a team I could build with, a team I could be a part of, partner with and hopefully gain something heading into the summer. I didn’t just want to be a rental.”
