I'll be honest. I had to look up James Ennis when I saw the news from Shams Charania that he'd agreed to a deal with the Memphis Grizzlies.
Vertical Sources: Memphis has agreed to a two-year, guaranteed $6M deal with free agent James Ennis. He averaged 15.9PPG to finish '15-16.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) July 3, 2016
I can't be alone here considering the army of players the Grizzlies went through last year and the thirteen (13) shots that Ennis took while he was in Memphis. Then I remembered he was one of the D-League standouts for the Iowa Energy last year where he put up 19PPG, 6REB on 45% shooting. But then I saw what he did in the last 9 games of the season with New Orleans, oh my, I can feel pretty good about this signing.

You combine those performances with his time here in Memphis last season and the time he spent with David Fizdale in Miami and boom, it's a done deal.
The shooting ability is wonderful, but it looks like we've got another high flyer too!
