DECEMBER 29: The Clippers have officially signed Ennis to a 10-day hardship deal, the team announced today. The contract will run through January 7, covering L.A.’s next five games.
DECEMBER 28: Veteran forward James Ennis is expected to sign a 10-day hardship contract with the Clippers, Shams Charania of The Athletic tweets.
Ennis’ 10-day contract with the Nets expired last night and our JD Shaw reported today (via Twitter) that the team didn’t plan to sign him to a second deal. Ironically, Ennis made a cameo appearance against the Clippers on Monday. He also played one other game for the Nets.
The well-traveled Ennis appeared in 41 games for the Magic last season, including 37 starts. He averaged 8.4 PPG and 4.0 RPG in 24.0 MPG. He failed to find a free agent offer after playing out his one-year, $3.3MM contract with Orlando.
The Clippers currently have three players in the league’s health and safety protocols.

I was just looking at yesterday’s box scores, Nets Vs. Clips was 1 of the games and I saw Ennis played 3 mins. and was surprised; I didn’t know that he was playing much and also it’s interesting to see him sign with LAC.
Considering Ennis played a decent 986’ last year, 3′ this year is not much. Apparently if ORL does not want you, nobody does! (This year being abnormal)
Also, does anyone know when Shaq Harrison and Wenyen Gabriel’s 10-day’s end? It’s been tough keeping up with the 10 days on their contracts.
just count 10 days…
Thanks for the idea!
I believe Gabriel’s contract became official the day before the Lakers’ game, so I’m guessing it ends 1/3/22. Shaq Harrison may have signed his around the same time as Ennis, so he could be about done.
