On the Trail
Ellison is a very skilled combo guard that likes to play in the open court. He is a very intelligent basketball player that usually makes the right decision. He is very good at using screens to create space and getting room for his jumper. He is still developing a 3-point shot, but he is very dependable at shooting off the dribble. He is still growing into is body, so he will need to continue to lift weights and get stronger. Now that he’s grown to about 6-5, he’s become a much more dangerous scorer, able to rise up and hit over most defenders and his handle is improving as well. He’s still far from a polished product but his upside is what has the high-majors intrigued; having Pervis Ellison as a father and coach doesn’t hurt, either. –April 29, 2014
