Top Keon Ellis News

  • Kings' Keon Ellis: Inks deal with Sacramento

    Ellis agreed to a three-year contract with the Kings Friday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Ellis was in the midst of his second season on a two-way deal with Sacramento, but he'll now get a spot on the 15-man roster after the Kings had an opening in the aftermath of Thursday's trade deadline. The 23-year-old guard is averaging 3.8 points, 1.3 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 11.9 minutes across 29 appearances in 2023-24, but he's largely been out of the rotation since late December while Davion Mitchell has settled back in as the primary backup to De'Aaron Fox.

  • Kings' Keon Ellis: Notches 13 points Sunday

    Ellis logged 13 points (5-6 FG, 3-3 3Pt), two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 12 minutes during Sunday's 133-100 loss to New Orleans.

    The Kings were blown out of this game early on, and De'Aaron Fox played just 26 minutes as a result. This was Ellis' first appearance since Dec. 31, so he hasn't been as involved lately, with the Kings presumably preserving his two-way eligibility. When he does see the floor, the Kings seem to prefer him over Davion Mitchell.

  • Kings' Keon Ellis: Excellent from downtown

    Ellis closed with 12 points (4-7 FG, 4-7 3Pt), two rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one steal across 19 minutes during Wednesday's 144-119 loss to the Celtics.

    Ellis displayed his talents beyond the arc with four three-pointers making up the entirety of his scoring total. Ellis sunk two of his shots right off the bat with the second unit and took over duties from the starters in the fourth quarter. Ellis currently has little fantasy value, and it will take a significant injury in the backcourt for Ellis to have any lasting effect on the box score.

  • Kings' Keon Ellis: Back to bench

    Ellis isn't starting Monday's game against the Wizards.

    Ellis drew a spot start at point guard Saturday against the Jazz, but he'll return to his usual role Monday now that De'Aaron Fox (shoulder) has been cleared for action. Ellis is averaging 4.3 points, 1.5 rebounds and 1.1 assists in his last 10 contests as a reserve.

  • Kings' Keon Ellis: Will start Saturday

    Ellis will start Saturday's game against the Jazz, Frankie Cartoscelli of KHTK Sactown Sports 1140 reports.

    De'Aaron Fox (shoulder) is sitting out Saturday, but presumably, he's day-to-day. Ellis is coming off a promising performance against the Thunder on Thursday, as he scored 17 points with six rebounds, three assists, one block, one steal and five three-pointers. Malik Monk is likely to see an expanded role as well.

  • Kings' Keon Ellis: Efficient shooter in win

    Ellis had 17 points (6-8 FG, 5-7 3Pt), six rebounds, three assists, one block and one steal across 28 minutes during Thursday's 128-123 win over the Thunder.

    Ellis thrived off the bench and made his presence felt on both ends of the court, though his scoring figures certainly stood out. This 17-point output represented a season-high mark for the former Alabama standout, but he's scored in double digits just three times throughout the campaign. Chances are this was an outlier rather than a sign of things to come in the future for Ellis.

  • Kings' Keon Ellis: Small role in return

    Ellis (ankle) played 5:35 in Tuesday's 124-123 win over the Warriors, finishing with three points (1-2 FG, 1-2 3Pt).

    Ellis was back in action after a three-game absence, but he handled only a sparse role off the bench while the Kings leaned heavily on starting point guard De'Aaron Fox (40 minutes). Barring Fox missing time again due to an injury, Ellis isn't likely to see his playing time pick up dramatically anytime soon.

  • Kings' Keon Ellis: Available Tuesday

    Ellis (ankle) is active for Tuesday's game against the Warriors.

    Ellis returns from a three-game absence and slots back into a fully healthy Sacramento backcourt. He will likely reprise some backup point guard duties, cutting into Davion Mitchell's workload.

  • Kings' Keon Ellis: Questionable for Tuesday

    Ellis (ankle) is questionable to play Tuesday against Golden State.

    Ellis is at risk of missing his fourth consecutive game Tuesday due to a left ankle sprain, although Sacramento coming off three full days of rest works in his favor. If Ellis can't suit up, Malik Monk will have increased combo guard duties. Chris Duarte has logged back-to-back games with 20-plus minutes as well.

  • Kings' Keon Ellis: Won't face Minnesota

    Ellis (ankle) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Timberwolves, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.

    Ellis will miss a third straight contest due to a left ankle sprain. The two-way player had settled in as Sacramento's backup point guard prior to suffering the injury, but his absence Friday should open up a spot in the rotation for Davion Mitchell.

  • Kings' Keon Ellis: Won't play Wednesday

    Ellis (ankle) is out for Wednesday's game against New Orleans.

    Ellis will miss his second consecutive game due to a left ankle sprain. Chris Duarte (hand) is also banged up, leaving Kevin Huerter, Malik Monk and Davion Mitchell as secondary playmakers to help fill the void alongside De'Aaron Fox. Ellis' next opportunity to return is Friday against Minnesota.

  • Kings' Keon Ellis: Dealing with ankle sprain

    Ellis has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Pelicans due to a left ankle sprain.

    Ellis has surpassed Davion Mitchell as the top backup behind De'Aaron Fox, but the Alabama product appears to have sprained his ankle during Sunday's win over the Mavericks. Sacramento may just be exercising precaution during a back-to-back, so Ellis can be considered day-to-day, with his next chance to suit up coming Wednesday in a rematch versus New Orleans. In Ellis' absence, Mitchell figures to operate as the primary backup point guard, but if Kevin Huerter (finger) and Sasha Vezenkov (thumb) join Ellis on the sideline, Malik Monk and Chris Duarte would presumably handle increased usage as well.

  • Kings' Keon Ellis: Back to bench

    Ellis isn't starting Monday's game against the Cavaliers, James Ham of ESPN 1320 Sacramento reports.

    Ellis will go back to a bench role with De'Aaron Fox returning from an ankle injury. Ellis started his team's last two contests, averaging 6.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.0 assists,1.5 steals and 1.5 blocks in 26.0 minutes.

  • Kings' Keon Ellis: Fails to impress in win

    Ellis provided four points (1-3 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT), four rebounds and three steals in 21 minutes during Wednesday's 121-118 overtime victory over the Trail Blazers.

    The Kings were impressed by Ellis' performance Monday against Houston and gave him the start. Unfortunately, he failed to make an impact, and the team put Davion Mitchell and Malik Monk back in after only seven minutes. Ellis appeared again for brief stints in the second and third quarter but rode the bench after that.

  • Kings' Keon Ellis: Making first NBA start

    Ellis is in the starting five for Wednesday's game versus the Trail Blazers, James Ham of ESPN 1320 Sacramento reports.

    Ellis will replace Davion Mitchell in the starting five Wednesday. Ellis is a two-way player for the Kings and will make just his fourth NBA appearance of the season after making 16 in 2022-23. The 23-year-old guard is coming off of a 15-point outing against Houston.

  • Kings' Keon Ellis: Surprises with 15-point effort

    Ellis finished Monday's 122-97 loss to Houston with 15 points (5-7 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 1-4 FT), two rebounds, one assist and one steal over 14 minutes.

    Ellis logged just two minutes across two appearances before shining off the bench Monday, as he ended with more points scored than minutes played while missing just two of his seven shots from the field. Ellis saw extended minutes since Houston blew out the Kings for a second straight game, but given how much the offense has struggled, it wouldn't be shocking if he sees extra minutes in the coming contests, particularly since De'Aaron Fox remains out with an ankle injury.

  • Kings' Keon Ellis: Plays 11 minutes Sunday

    Ellis tallied one point (0-2 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds and one steal in 11 minutes during Sunday's 112-99 preseason loss to the Raptors.

    Ellis played double-digit minutes off the bench during Sunday's preseason opener but wasn't able to generate significant production in the loss. He split time between the G League and NBA last year, and he averaged 1.5 points in 4.4 minutes per game over 16 appearances with the parent club.

  • Kings' Keon Ellis: Out against Bucks

    Ellis won't play in Saturday's Summer League game against Milwaukee due to an undisclosed reason, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.

    Ellis' Summer League is likely over, but it doesn't appear as though he's suffered a serious injury. Ellis is set to split time between the NBA and G League in 2023-24 as a two-way player.

  • Kings' Keon Ellis: Remaining in Sacramento

    Ellis re-signed with the Kings on a two-way contract Sunday, Paul Garcia of ProjectSpurs.com reports.

    Ellis spent the 2022-23 campaign with the Kings on a two-way deal, and he'll remain with the organization this season on a contract that will continue to allow him flexibility to move between the NBA and G League clubs. He made 16 appearances with Sacramento last year and averaged 1.5 points in 4.4 minutes per game.
