Wayne Robert Ellington Jr. (born October 29, 1987 in Wynnewood, Pennsylvania), is an American basketball player who was drafted 28th overall in the 2009 NBA Draft by the Minnesota Timberwolves of the National Basketball Association. Ellington played for the University of North Carolina from 2006 to 2009. Ellington, 6'4" tall and 202 lbs, is a shooting guard who chose to forgo his final season of college eligibility to declare for the 2009 NBA Draft. His career-best performance came during a 90–88 overtime win against Clemson on January 6, 2008, in which he led all scorers with 36 points.

Ellington scored 2,211 points in his high school career, tallying 455 points at Daniel Boone High School, and then 1,756 points at The Episcopal Academy. In his senior year, Ellington averaged 21.9 points, 8.3 rebounds, 3.2 assists and shot 39% from the 3-Point line. He led Episcopal Academy to an overall record of 52-7 in his junior and senior year. He also led Episcopal Academy to the Inter-Academic League Conference title in his last two years going 20-0 in both seasons. (Episcopal Academy doesn't play in state championships.)

Ellington played in all 38 games for the ACC Champion Tar Heels in 2006-2007, averaging 11.7 points per game. He was named to the 2007 ACC All-Tournament Team. His season ended on a sour note though, as North Carolina lost to Georgetown in the East Regional final of the NCAA Tournament. Ellington had a chance to win the game in regulation, but missed a 3-pointer in the final seconds. As a sophomore, Ellington saw his points-per-game average increase as the Tar Heels increasingly went to him in key moments of games. In the January 6, 2008 game at Clemson, Ellington scored a career high 36 points, including the game winning three-pointer with 0:00.4 seconds left in overtime to lead top-rated UNC over #19 Clemson 90-88. But again, his season ended in a poor fashion, as he shot only 1 for 9 from three-point range, in a loss to Kansas in a national semifinal game in the NCAA Tournament. He declared for the 2008 NBA Draft after that season, but did not hire an agent, and withdrew to play his junior year at North Carolina.
