2015 Player Capsule: Wayne Ellington

Turnover percentage by Wayne Ellington. The six-year veteran never gave the ball away more than three times in a game, which contributed to him ranking fifth in the NBA in turnover percentage.
10: Rebounds grabbed at Utah on Feb. 25. In addition to this career-best night on the boards, Ellington pitched in 15 points for his first-ever double-double.
28: Points scored against Washington on Jan. 27, which were a career high. Ellington went 12-for-20 from the field versus the Wizards and followed with another solid game by dropping 23 on Chicago two days later.

With more opportunity came more success for Ellington, who averaged a career-high 25.8 minutes played. The 27-year-old also tallied career bests in points (10.0), rebounds (3.2) and assists (1.6), while developing into one of the team’s top outside threats. Ellington led the Lakers by shooting 37.0 percent on 3-pointers, though he was even more effective early on. The first-year Laker shot 44.6 percent from the field and 38.9 percent on 3’s prior to the All-Star break. He played only 21 games after that due to a separated right shoulder suffered on April 1.

“I want to continue to get better with ball handling. I want to add some quickness to my shot. I’ve watched a lot of shooters that are really good. (I want to) be able to get the shot off really fast without guys able to contest. And I want to continue to get better at getting to the foul line more.”
