So I'm thinking about our roster, and one of the questions that keeps popping into my mind is "How much better will Ellington be?" If he manages to improve his conditioning this offseason so he can play better defense (not that he was so bad) does he have any potential to be a starting player, or is he only ever going to be a 3 point gunner off the bench?
So, I tend to be a major home-team optimist, but I really do feel like Wayne has a very high ceiling for this team. I think most would agree that they would take Wayne's rookie year over Corey Brewer's. Hopefully Wayne will have a similar trajectory as Brewer has and round out his game with some better ball handling and more aggressiveness offensively.
I feel like he has a complete package to be uncovered, quite possibly starting quality. If he can still drain 3s and starts to find some consistency in driving the basket (and gets the minutes), I see a guy in the 15-20 ppg area. And my optimism tells me that could be as early as next season.
Anyone out there think I'm crazy?
