    Wayne Ellington is making 2 million per year. He was one of four to move on. He will be OK. He has improved his game lately.

    This may be a better fit for him. Sometimes a trade can revive a career!

    GO HEELS!!!

    Wayne Ellington's NBA career has been largely disappointing, but his recent trade to the Cleveland Cavaliers may be his best chance at finding success (ESPN). Through four-plus years in the league, he has averaged only 6.3 points per game on 41 percent shooting from the field.

    This season, he's making only 41 percent of his shots from the field.

    His appeal lies in the fact that he's a restricted free agent at the end of the season. If he doesn't work out, the Cavs can cut ties with him.

    Coming out of North Carolina in 2009, Ellington was billed as a sharp-shooter with decent upside as a scorer. Ellington averaged 14.7 points in three years at Chapel Hill, but a lack of elite athleticism saw him fall to 28th in the 2009 NBA draft.

    Ellington will never be a great ball-handler, and he'll never excel at creating his own shot. The key to any success he'll have at the NBA level is tied to his ability to knock down open jump shots.

    This is something he's failed to do consistently throughout his career.

    As a member of the Cavaliers, he'll at least get the opportunity to play alongside a point guard that excels at penetrating and dishing. Mike Conley is as quick as they come, but he doesn't draw the same attention on the drive that Kyrie Irving does.

    Ellington did play with Ricky Rubio last season, but even in Rubio's playmaking wizardry, Ellington wouldn't get the same types of looks he can get playing off Irving.
