Knicks could discuss buyout with Wayne Ellington

Wayne Ellington, Knicks

The New York Knicks could enter buyout conversations with guard Wayne Ellington after not trading him at the deadline.

Ellington signed a two-year, $16 million deal with the Knicks in free agency this past summer. He had previously played for the Miami Heat and Detroit Pistons last season:

Ellington has only played in 25 games this season for the Knicks. He’s averaging 4.3 points and 1.6 rebounds while shooting 33.3 percent from the field, 32.6 percent from beyond the arc and 75.0 percent from the free-throw line.

The Knicks are 16-36 on the season. They are in 13th place in the Eastern Conference standings.

New York traded Marcus Morris to the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday. The Knicks got Maurice Harkless, a 2020 first round pick, a 2021 first round pick and a 2021 second round pick for Morris.
