RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017-18

Subscribe now to see our 2017-18 outlook.

2015-16

Ennis appeared in 62 games for Miami last year but saw most of his action when the team was riddled with injuries, averaging 5.0 points and 2.8 rebounds in 17 minutes per game. He now enters his second NBA season under a non-guaranteed contract with the Heat, and given that the team extended Ennis' guarantee date on his deal, his future with the team looks rather bleak. Ennis presents himself as a long, athletic wing and even served as a stand-out talent when he played overseas, but during his brief stint in the NBA, he hasn't shown the ability to do any one thing particularly well. With that said, even if Ennis should secure a roster spot before the season starts, how he would fit into the team's rotation will remain a big question mark, especially with the acquisition of both Justise Winslow and Gerald Green this offseason, both of whom are versatile wings. Unless this Miami team becomes plagued with injuries, Ennis' impact over the course of the 2015-16 season will be rather minimal, and he may even find himself in the D-League from time-to-time during the year.

2014-15

Ennis was drafted by the Hawks with the 50th overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft but was then traded to the Heat. He spent the gap year playing abroad in Australia and Puerto Rico, all the while waiting for the Heat to create roster space for the 24-year-old. The pride of Long Beach State excelled In his season in Australia and ultimately finished third in MVP voting while averaging 21.2 points and 7.2 rebounds per game. He then spent a short time in Puerto Rico before participating in the NBA's summer league. Ennis exceeded expectations in six summer league performances as he shot 48 percent from the field with averages of 15.5 points and 5.0 rebounds. At times, he looked better on the court than fellow rookie Shabazz Napier and gave coach Erik Spoelstra reason to believe he could contribute to the Heat's rotation this season. While his expectations for this season should still be curbed, he has an outside chance at proving he deserves time off the bench if he's able to duplicate some of the outings we've seen from him overseas and in the summer league this past season.
