Actually, after the Kings foolishly traded him, Ellison played 74 games, albeit fewer minutes, in his first season in D.C, averaging around 10 points, 8 rebounds and 2 blocks. I was thinking more along the lines of the cumulative average of his years with the Bullets.
That's still a good call on your part. Folks tend to forget that when Ellison was at least relatively healthy, he was a very productive player, at least on a per-minute basis, even though he played out of position for years.
