BLACK­WA­TER STUMPED: WHERE IN THE WORLD IS CHRIS EL­LIS?

Philippine Daily Inquirer - - SPORTS - By Ran­dolph Leong­son, Inquirer.net

@RLeong­sonINQ Black­wa­ter owner Dio­celdo Sy con­tin­ues to be stumped as to where Fil-Am wing­man Chris El­lis is—or what his bas­ket­ball plans are.

“Ac­tu­ally I think he is on the exit al­ready from the PBA. Other­wise, if you’re in­ter­ested to play, you have no choice but to fol­low the trade,” he said. “So far, in the past three years I have been in the PBA, this is the first time I found a player who doesn’t re­port in a trade. So we won’t force the is­sue.”

Gine­bra shipped El­lis to- gether with cen­ter Dave Marcelo to the Elite in ex­change for the in­jured Art dela Cruz and Ray­mond Aguilar last Au­gust.

Since be­ing dealt, El­lis has just showed up once in the team’s prac­tice be­fore com­plain­ing of a kid­ney prob­lem which needed hos­pi­tal­iza­tion. That was the last time the team saw of or heard from the for­mer Slam Dunk cham­pion—un­til a cryp­tic tweet last Nov. 12.

“I want to sin­cerely thank ev­ery­one who has shown love n con­cern for me! Thank you!! Im Ex­cited for what the fu­ture holds! Un­til we meet again!” El­lis wrote.
