Ty Ellis

Named on Oct. 15, 2021, an assistant coach for the November 2021 USA Basketball Men's World Cup Qualifying Team, Ellis also is not a newcomer to USA Basketball.

Serving as an assistant coach for USA head coach Van Gundy and the 2017 USA AmeriCup Team, Ellis helped the Americans compile a 5-0 record to claim the 2017 FIBA Americas Championship.

Ellis served as the Camp Director for the NBA G League Elite Camp in 2019 and 2021, an annual NBA event held in Chicago to showcase the talent of potential draft picks. 

He served as head coach of the G League Stockton Kings for two seasons (2018-20). Fresh from the team relocating from Reno, under Ellis, Stockton in 2018-19 finished with an overall 30-20 record, placed second in the Pacific Division, and qualified for the playoffs. In his second season (2019-20) with the Kings, the team owned a 24-19 overall record and was in first place in the Pacific Division when the season was cancelled on March 12 amid the Coronavirus pandemic.

The Dallas native served as an assistant coach for the Phoenix Suns for one season (2017-18), and he was among four D-League coaches involved in the 2017 NBA Draft Combine, where he helped lead the prospects, along with NBA coaches, during scrimmages and drills.

Ellis’ coaching career also includes one season (2016-17) as head coach for the NBA G League Northern Arizona Suns, and assistant coaching stints with the Bakersfield Jam (2015-16), Grand Rapids Drive (2014-15), Reno Bighorns (2013-14) and Tulsa 66ers (2012-13).

Playing four seasons collegiately at NAIA Southern Nazarene University, he graduated ranked fourth all-time on the school’s scoring list with 1,822 points. He also listed second all-time in 3-pointers made with 248 in 129 total games.

Ellis played one year for the NBA D-League Huntsville Flight and 10 years in the top levels in Europe (Germany, Turkey, Italy and Spain).

Ellis and his wife co-founded the Ellis Performance Group, a performance consulting company specializing in Growth Mindset, Leadership, and Empowerment.
