Wayne Ellington was released by the Phoenix Suns on Thursday. Once he clears waivers, he’ll sign with the Detroit Pistons.

On February 6, he was involved in a trade with Tyler Johnson to the Suns. In exchange, the Heat acquired Ryan Anderson.

One day after the trade, he was waived by the team.

Ellington joins the Pistons depth chart at shooting guard that includes starter Bruce Brown. In addition, it includes Luke Kennard, Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk — who was recently acquired in a trade with the Los Angeles Lakers — and Langston Galloway.

This will be his eighth NBA team in his career. Besides playing for the Heat, he has also played for the Minnesota Timberwolves, Brooklyn Nets, Los Angeles Lakers, Dallas Mavericks, Memphis Grizzlies, and the Cleveland Cavaliers. He was the Timberwolves first-round pick in the 2009 NBA Draft.

The 31-year-old Wynnewood, Pennsylvania native appeared in 25 games with the Heat this season, including 12 starts. He is averaging 8.4 points, 1.9 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 1.0 steals, and 0.1 blocks per game. 

In his NBA career, he has made 617 appearances with 139 starts. He is averaging 8.0 points, 2.2 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 0.5 steals, and 0.1 blocks per game.
