Wayne Ellington's deal is done

Shooting guard Wayne Ellington’s deal with the Mavericks is officially done.

Ellington signed a two-year deal worth $5.3 million. The Mavs used the “room” exception to sign him.

The 6-foot-4, 200-pound Ellington has averaged 6.9 points and 2.0 rebounds in 19.5 minutes per game during his four-year NBA career with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Memphis Grizzlies and Cleveland Cavaliers. After being traded from Memphis to Cleveland last season, he averaged 10.4 points and 3.0 rebounds in 25.9 minutes while playing 38 games for the Cavs.

Ellington is expected to back up fellow free-agent addition Monta Ellis for the Mavs.
