The Raptors 905 acquired Ellenson's rights Tuesday from the Long Island Nets in exchange for Justin Anderson.
Ellenson had previously occupied one of Brooklyn's two two-way spots before he was waived earlier this month. The big man stuck around in Brooklyn's organization thereafter as a member of the Long Island roster, but he'll now head north of the border. Over 10 appearances for Long Island, Ellenson averaged 20.1 points, 10.5 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.2 blocks in 31.5 minutes.
Ellenson was waived by the Nets on Friday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Ellenson, who was on a two-way contract, had seen very little action for the Nets, totaling two points, six rebounds and one assist in 15 minutes. While he won't be playing for the parent club, there's a chance he'll still latch on in the G League.
Ellenson accounted for 33 points (14-19 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 12 rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block in 39 minutes during Friday's loss to the Valley Vipers.
Ellenson led the charge on the offensive side of things, topping 30 points for the first time this season and grabbing his seventh double-double of the year. The 22-year-old could be next in line for a call-up as he's currently averaging 20.1 points, 10.4 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.3 blocks in 31.5 minutes per game while shooting 49.0 percent from the field, 31.8 percent from three and 96.2 percent from the line.
Ellenson accumulated 24 points (7-10 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 7-7 FT), 14 rebounds, three assists and three blocks in 36 minutes during Wednesday's win over Westchester.
Ellenson had a fantastic game, posting his second-straight double-double and finishing with a plus-23 net rating. While the fourth-year forward continues to struggle with consistency issues, he's put together a nice season so far and is averaging 20.3 points, 10.4 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.5 blocks in 31.5 minutes per game in the G League.
Ellenson posted 16 points (7-20 FG, 0-8 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 10 rebounds and two assists in 27 minutes Monday against the 905.
Although Ellenson was able to record a double-double, his ugly shooting performance was the main takeaway Monday. While the former first-round pick's improved his field-goal percentage to a solid 45.8 percent, it's still quite a bit lower than owners would expect from a long-limbed forward.
Ellenson posted 25 points (9-19 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 17 rebounds, three assists, two blocks and a steal in 31 minutes during Tuesday's loss to Wisconsin.
Ellenson grabbed a season-high 17 rebounds, finishing with both a well-rounded line and a negative-16 net rating. it was good to see the Marquette product get his shot going from deep, as his season-long 25.0 percent conversion rate has been a major impediment to Ellenson's advancement to the NBA. Across six games, e's averaging 20.8 points, 6.8 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.0 steal in 32.0 minutes.
Ellenson recorded 25 points (8-16 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 5-5 FT), nine rebounds, four assists, two steals and two blocks across 37 minutes in Sunday's loss to the Red Claws.
Ellenson had an impressive outing in his return to the G-League, scoring a season-best 25 points and finishing with a plus-15 net rating. The 22-year-old's failed to secure a role in the NBA so far this year and has seen just three minutes in one game for his parent club. That said, he's handling the G-League competition well and is averaging 20.0 points, 8.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 2.0 blocks in 32.4 minutes over three games with Long Island.
Ellenson provided 17 points (6-16 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-3 FT), eight rebounds, three assists and a block in 31 minutes during Sunday's loss to Windy City.
While Ellenson led Long Island in scoring output, his efforts weren't enough to turn the tide against the Bulls. In two G-League games this year, Ellenson's totaling 17.5 points, 8.5 rebounds, 2.0 blocks and 1.5 assists. As he's historically done, Ellenson continues to struggle with his shot and is hitting just 43.3 percent of his takes from the field and 3.0.8 percent of his threes so far.
Ellenson hasn't appeared in any of Brooklyn's first four regular season games in 2019-20.
Ellenson played precious few minutes (12) during two preseason appearances and hasn't seen the floor during the regular season. Having signed a two-way deal in the summer, it's not overly surprising that he hasn't cracked the rotation yet. As such, he can be left on waiver wires.
Ellenson agreed Monday with the Nets on a two-way contract, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
A 2016 first-round pick, Ellenson will be entering his fourth season in the NBA in 2019-20 as a member of his third organization after stints with the Pistons and Knicks. After being cut loose by Detroit in February, Ellenson landed with the Knicks and saw his biggest NBA opportunity to date, appearing in 17 contests and averaging 6.0 points and 3.4 rebounds in 13.8 minutes per game. As he heads to a more talented Brooklyn roster, playing time will likely become even more difficult to come by, especially since the 22-year-old's two-way deal will only allow him to spend up to 45 days at the NBA level.
Ellenson has left the Knicks' summer league team for personal reasons, Chris Iseman of The Bergen Record reports.
It's not immediately clear why Ellenson has left the team. More information may arrive later on.
Ellenson will join the Knicks for summer league, Marc Berman of the New York Post reports.
Ellenson is currently a free agent, but he spent some time with the Knicks last season and could be a consideration to fill the team's final roster spot.
Ellenson had his team option declined by the Knicks and will become an unrestricted free agent, Michael Scotto of The Athletic reports.
The former first-rounder will become a free agent after averaging 6.0 points and 3.5 rebounds in 13.6 minutes in 19 games split between Detroit and New York last year. Ellenson has yet to show the promise he offered in the draft and could be on the outside looking in when free agency commences.
Ellenson will sign with the Knicks for the remainder of the season after his 10-day contract expires, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
It is technically a two-year deal for Ellenson, who will have team option for the second year, but the former 18th overall pick appeared to have done enough in his lone game with the Knicks to remain with the team. Ellenson posted 13 points, nine rebounds and five assists in his Knicks debut against the Magic on Tuesday and should be in line for more minutes as the season moves forward.
Ellenson logged 36 minutes off the bench and produced 13 points (5-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt), nine rebounds, five assists and two steals in the Knicks' 108-103 win over the Magic.
Making only his second appearance for the Knicks since signing a 10-day deal, Ellenson effectively took Luke Kornet's spot in the rotation, as the latter was limited to just four minutes. Spearheaded by Ellenson, Mitchell Robinson, Emmanuel Mudiay and Allonzo Trier, the second unit guided the Knicks to a huge fourth-quarter comeback, but that doesn't necessarily mean all will be guaranteed expanded roles moving forward. At this time, only Robinson looks like a safe bet to deliver lasting fantasy value over what's left of the season.
Ellenson will sign a 10-day contract with the Knicks, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
The former 18th overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, Ellenson was released by the Pistons near the trade deadline to add Wayne Ellington. The Knicks will opt to take a chance on the 22-year-old big man out of Marquette, who has shot 32.3 percent from distance in his three-year career. It seems unlikely he'll carry much, if any, standard fantasy league relevance.
Ellenson is expected to be released by Detroit, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.
The Pistons are hoping to sign Wayne Ellington when he clears waivers and to be able to do so, the team must make a roster spot available. It's reported that Ellenson will be the odd man out of Detroit when the team signs Ellington.
Ellenson was recalled from the G League, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.
Ellenson will rejoin the Pistons on Sunday and will be available to play in Monday's matchup versus the Nuggets if called upon. The Marquette product has played in only two games so far with the Pistons this year, averaging 12.5 minutes per contest.
Ellenson was assigned to the G League's Grand Rapids Drive on Friday, Keith Langlois of the Pistons' official site reports.
Ellenson hasn't seen the floor in almost two months due to a sprained ankle, but he was recently removed from the team's injury report. The 22-year-old may now get an opportunity in the G League to see some on-court action for the first time since early December.
Ellenson (ankle) isn't listed on the Pistons' injury report ahead of Friday's game against the Mavericks.
Ellenson had previously been labeled as questionable ahead of the Pistons' most recent game Wednesday in New Orleans. The team didn't provide an update on his status prior to the contest, but Ellenson was ultimately inactive, either as a result of the injury or in a coach's decision. Ellenson is seemingly healthy at this juncture, but the 2016 first-round pick wasn't included in the rotation before suffering the injury and probably won't pick up meaningful playing time at any point this season.
