   2017 NBA Manifesto
2017-06-29

James Ennis
SF, 6’7, 210lbs, 26 years old, 3 years of experience

Overexposed in having to play a bigger role than suits his marginal talents. As a man who cannot take a dribble in traffic, commits a high amount of turnovers through trying anyway and who does not defend as well as it looks like he should do, Ennis is a ninth man time rather than a 1,500 minute player. Nevertheless, he shot 37.2% from three-point range on a .427% three-point attempt rate, which will help cement his future. Ennis needs to commit to using his physical prowess to cutting, defending and rebounding more than he does, but he is a useful if inconsistent role player paid accordingly.

Player Plan: One year and $3,028,410 remaining. No reason to move it, and surely no value in doing so, so play it out and re-evaluate.

   2014 Summer League rosters - Miami
2014-07-07

James Ennis - Last year's second round pick went to Australia and dominated. He averaged 21.2 points, 7.2 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 1.4 steals and 0.8 blocks in 31.7 minutes per game, and the only reason he didn't win MVP was because Rotnei Clarke's scoring was considered more valuable for whatever reason. The Australian league is not an athletic one, and Ennis's leaping ability and transition games were unparalleled and very unstoppable. Ennis also shot the ball fairly well from three (35% on quite high attempts), finished at the rim, and got there in the halfcourt better than usual. With the athleticism and frame to play defense at the NBA level, along with a long wing span and decent passing vision, he seems to be a legitimate roster spot candidate next season. The handle and shot creating in the half court are not there, but as an NBA role player, they wouldn't need to be.

James Ennis

The Heat traded a future second round pick to get Ennis's rights, a strong endorsement of their opinion of him. He struggles to create his own shot, but this is the Heat - he shouldn't need to. If Ennis can just crash the glass, defend his position, move off the ball, finish with power in transition and off good looks from others, and hit his jumpshots, he could stick around. The latter of these is the most pressing, but Ennis has improved this facet of his game year on year and should continue to do so.
