Heat Sign James Ennis

TUESDAY, 5:32pm: The Heat have officially announced the signing, according to a team press release.

“We were excited to draft James a year ago and have been impressed by the growth of his game in Summer League and Puerto Rico, as well as his terrific experience in Australia, leading Perth to a championship,” said team president Pat Riley in a statement. “We are looking forward to the infusion of energy he will bring to our roster.”

JUNE 13TH: With the Heat on the ropes to the Spurs in the NBA Finals, the need for the team to get younger and deeper is becoming apparent. The Heat are pleased enough with the development of 2013 second-round pick James Ennis that there is a “strong likelihood” the team will sign him this summer, reports Shams Charania of RealGM (Twitter link).

After a strong season in Australia’s National Basketball League where he averaged 21.2 PPG, 7.2 RPG, and 2.0 APG, Ennis spent the past week working out for the Heat front office in Miami, reports Charania (via RealGM). Ennis, 23, will headline the Heat’s Summer League rosters in Orlando and Las Vegas, according to the article.

The Heat acquired Ennis from the Hawks, who selected him with the 50th overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft. The potential signing of Ennis would likely be a multi-year deal, sources told Charania.

    As a heat fan there only problem is honestly the lack of depth. This is surely a start to a fix.

  2. Obviously we need a bench but we need to find a guy we can plug in the starting lineup that can be a perimeter threat and can make plays. Wether that’s Melo or Rudy Gay. LeBron needs front court help


    wish he would of been on the team but miami heat coach dont even use his damn bench no one play greg oden and michael beasly

    Coaching is the key in this series, Spo thinks he is special as he rides the coat tails of the big 3… When he needs scoring he doesn’t put Beasley in. He plays Battier who can’t hit the ocean with a hand full on peas standing at the end of a dock. His luck has run out and he now is exposed!

    I guess we are really relying on James Ennis to be exactly what his upside is. We need his athleticism on the wing even more than we needed that spot last year. Not only do we need him to use that athleticism on both ends of the court, but we need him to knock down shots. Hopefully we can get the big man that I’ve been talking about and another wing player and then fill out the final couple of spots on the roster

    I think that we’re going to see more 2 PG lineups this season to try and make up for our lack of depth on the wing. With the PG spot becoming more and more dynamic and teams playing more 3 guard lineups, it makes sense to have 3 PGs on the roster, and those guys have some versatility

    Little too late Pat.
