Atlanta Hawks possible free agent signing No. 2) James Ennis

James Ennis is one of the most traveled veterans in the NBA. In his seven seasons in the league, he has played for seven different franchises. This does not take away from the fact that he is a very solid player who is usually part of the finishing unit for the Orlando Magic.

For his career, Ennis has averaged 6.7 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.0 assists, and 0.6 steals in 20.5 minutes per game. While these numbers seem a little underwhelming, he has been really efficient shooting the ball at 45.7 percent from the floor, 36.0 percent from beyond the arc, and 79.7 from the line

Ennis is a quality defender but his percentage from deep last season was out of the box. He shot the ball at 43.3 percent from beyond the arc. If the Hawks could sign Ennis and he could replicate this for the Hawks next season then this would make the Hawks bench even more dangerous.

Ennis earned $3.3 million last season which would be a bargain for the Hawks this season. The drawback of Ennis is that he is only 6’6” and is limited to one position. However, because you know what you are going to get with Ennis, you can work him into rotations that work for him and the team.
