Detroit Pistons’ Henry Ellenson among most efficient players in Orlando

TARRYTOWN, NEW YORK - AUGUST 07: Henry Ellenson /

Detroit Pistons’ Henry Ellenson has had a sensational showing at the Orlando Summer League. Advanced stats make his case even more compelling.

Detroit Pistons’ second year player Henry Ellenson has been opening some people’s eyes regarding what he can bring to the court.

In his time in Orlando this offseason, Ellenson has averaged 20.5 points, seven rebounds, 1.5 assists, and he’s shooting a hair under 48% from the field.

What’s more impressive is he’s also a leader in efficiency at the Orlando Summer League, despite his volume and usage.

Here’s an up-to-date look at the most efficient offensive players at the Orlando #NBASummer League to this point.

Ellenson has passed they eye test this offseason. He’s got a dribble-drive game, he can hit face-up jumpers, fallaway jumpers, he can body up and finish at the rim, and he can hit three’s with efficiency.  He’s also demonstrated that he is a very capable passer.

While still figuring it out defensively, Ellenson is showing that he has the ability to become an elite and complete player offensively, particularly for his size, and potentially a passable defender.

Now he’s just got to continue to develop and reach his potential. If he does that, the Pistons will have a very unique player that could take them to another level.
