Sources: Ellington close to signing with Pistons

Guard Wayne Ellington is closing in on a commitment to sign with the Detroit Pistons, league sources tell ESPN, league sources told ESPN on Friday.

Ellington is one of the top available players in the post-trade deadline buyout market, and Detroit will score a significant recruiting victory in signing him.

The Pistons are selling Ellington on replacing a bulk of the playing time that opened up with the trade of Reggie Bullock to the Lakers. Ellington is on a one-year contract and the Pistons offer a chance to showcase himself for summer free agency.

The Phoenix Suns waived Ellington after acquiring him in a trade with the Miami Heat. He will be a free agent once he clears waivers this weekend.

The 31-year-old guard is averaging 8.4 points in 21.3 minutes per game for the Heat this season, both slightly above his career averages.
