Detroit Pistons: Wayne Ellington has been amazing

Go off, Wayne Ellington!

You can make an argument that Wayne Ellington has been the best shooter in the NBA this season.

He is in the top-five in percentage at 50 percent and has more attempts than anyone ahead of him on the list.

Ellington recently set the Pistons’ record for most made 3-pointers in a four-game stretch and it would be great to see him keep it going.

In fact, I’d love to see him go off.

The way he is shooting, Ellington is due for a huge night where he knocks down eight or nine 3-point shots and ends up with 30+ points.

It is going to happen at some point if he keeps shooting like this, so why not against rival Philly?

Also, Ellington is undoubtedly starting to attract attention from playoff contenders looking for depth and shooting.

A big night complete with coverage on ESPN will help notify the league that the Pistons have a trade asset.

Troy Weaver was largely panned for signing Mason Plumlee and Wayne Ellington, but both have played well so far and look like trade assets. Weaver is definitely smarter than me.
