Wayne Ellington starts at SG for Lakers (Oct 23 12:00 ET )
With Kobe Bryant sitting out on Wednesday, Wayne Ellington started at SG and had 11 points, two rebounds, two assists, two steals and a 3-pointer.
The Scoop:Ellington has played for the Timberwolves, Cavs, Grizzlies, and Mavs during his brief five-year career, and boasts career averages of 6.4 points, and 1.8 rebounds on 41.8 percent shooting from the field. In other words, he's completely irrelevant from a fantasy perspective.
The Scoop:Ellington never figured to be a primary piece to the Kings rotation, and Sunday was the last day teams could apply the waive-and-stretch provision. There doesn't seem to be much interest in Ellington around the league, but if he is able to sign somewhere, he'll still be irrelevant in fantasy circles.
The New York Knicks acquired forwards Quincy Acy and Travis Outlaw from the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday for guard Wayne Ellington and forward Jeremy Tyler. Also, New York reduced the protection on a 2016 second-round draft pick it sent to Portland in 2012 and the Kings later acquired from the Trail Blazers. Knicks general manager Steve Mills said the deal helped better balance New York's roster, which was heavier at shooting guard but not deep at small forward behind Carmelo Anthony.
