Another NBA player has chosen Brooklyn.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Monday that 22-year-old forward Henry Ellenson has agreed to sign a two-way deal with the Nets, where he will compete for a role on the team's bench. He will also be eligible to be sent down and recalled from the Long Island Nets, Brooklyn's G-League affiliate, without having to be placed on waivers.

Ellenson is a big forward at 6'11 and 245 pounds, but profiles best as a stretch four. Over his first three NBA seasons, Ellenson has averaged 4.3 points and 2.5 rebounds while shooting 35.3 percent on three-pointers. He had his best statistical season last year, averaging 6.0 points and 3.5 rebounds while hitting 44.7 percent of his three-pointers with both the Pistons and Knicks.

NEW YORK -- As Year 1 of the Chris Mullin Era at St. John's came to a close Wednesday night before 12,604 fans at Madison Square Garden, Henry Ellenson provided the Johnnies with an instructive lesson for the future.

The 6-foot-11 freshman from Rice Lake, Wis., who looks like he will be the first one-and-done player from the Big East in three years, dominated St. John's in the paint to the tune of 27 points and 14 rebounds in a 101-93 Marquette victory that brought St. John's long and difficult season to an end.

It was Ellenson's three-pointer with three minutes remaining that gave Marquette back the lead for good after St. John's had gone ahead on a three-pointer from Ron Mvouika.

Providence guard Kris Dunn was named the Big East Player of the Year on Wednesday, earning the honor for the second straight season. He was the co-Player of the Year with Villanova's Ryan Arcidiacono last season.

Dunn, who averaged 16.3 points, 6.4 assists and 5.7 rebounds for the Friars, beat out Villanova's Josh Hart, Seton Hall's Isaiah Whitehead and teammate Ben Bentil for the award. He is the projected No. 5 pick in the NBA Draft according to DraftExpress.com.

"If you're the best player, you're the best player," DePaul's Dave Leitao said recently. "If you take [Dunn] off Providence, they probably would not be nearly as successful as they are."

Providence's Kris Dunn, Villanova's Josh Hart, Seton Hall's Isaiah Whitehead and possibly Providence's Ben Bentil are likely to split votes for Big East Player of the Year, according to an informal poll of the league's 10 coaches on Friday.

Marquette's Henry Ellenson remains the overwhelming favorite for Rookie of the Year honors, although Xavier's Edmond Sumner is also likely to receive some consideration.

Dunn was the Preseason Player of the Year, while Villanova's Jalen Brunson was the Preseason Rookie of the Year.
