After two years, Chris Ellis finally shows up in Thailand
Former Ginebra forward Chris Ellis has finally resurfaced, almost two years since leaving the Philippine Basketball scene.
The 30-year-old wingman, apparently, has taken his high-flying acts to Thailand, suiting up for Lao team Luang Prabang.
Ellis debuted on Saturday in the Thai Basketball Super League (TBSL). Though his teamed bowed down to Kabayan, a team bannered by former Gilas Pilipinas naturalized player Marcus Douthit, Ellis made good account of himself with 19 points, 10 rebounds and 6 assists.
Ellis disappeared from the PBA after being traded to Blackwater with Dave Marcelo in exchange for Art dela Cruz and Raymond Aguilar in August 2017.
He never had a chance to suit up for the Elite after he suffers from acute renal issue before being relegated to the team’s reserve list. The team eventually released him.
