Wayne 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.

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 averaged 8.4 points in 21.3 minutes per game for the Heat this season, both slightly above his career averages.
