Lakers Announce Signing Of Guard Wayne Ellington

With only a week until training camp begins, many believed that the Lakers off-season moves were done, but apparently that is not the case.

The Lakers officially announced the signing of free agent guard Wayne Ellington:

A 6’4 shooting guard out of North Carolina, Ellington entered the league in 2009 known for his deep shooting ability, but has struggled to translate to the NBA level.

According to Mark Medina of the LA Daily News, Ellington’s contract is partially guaranteed:

While not necessarily a game-changing acquisition, Ellington will provide some depth on the wings for the Lakers. With Xavier Henry not quite ready yet, and Jordan Clarkson being a rookie, Nick Young is the only known commodity off the bench on the wings for the team.

Ellington, a first round pick of the Minnesota Timberwolves in the 2009 NBA Draft, has spent five seasons in the league, most recently playing 45 games for the Dallas Mavericks last season.
