PHILADELPHIA (CBS)—The Philadelphia 76ers made another deal ahead of Thursday’s NBA trade deadline. According to several reports, the team will be receiving 28-year-old James Ennis from the Houston Rockets in exchange for draft considerations.
Ennis is a 6-foot-7 forward and has been in the league since 2014. Philadelphia will become the sixth club for the well-traveled Ennis, who averaged 7.4 points for the Rockets this season.
Ennis has also played for Miami, Memphis, Houston and New Orleans. He’s a career 36 percent shooter from 3-point range and will add to Philadelphia’s bench depth.
The Sixers have reportedly waived Malachi Richardson to make room for Ennis.
This move comes on the heals of Wednesday’s blockbuster move that landed the team Tobias Harris, Boban Marjanovic and Mike Scott from the Los Angeles Clippers.
