Ennis is known for his athleticism and has been an explosive dunker during his brief time in the league. He could potentially be an interesting fit for a team that pushes the ball and plays at a fast tempo. That hasn’t been the case in his previous stops, with last season’s Miami team playing the second-slowest pace in the league and the current Memphis squad fourth-slowest in 2015-16. New Orleans has had an objective to be one of the fastest teams in the NBA under Gentry, but hasn’t always been able to do that amid a high number of injuries. “He’s athletic,” Gentry said of Ennis. “He has a little bit of versatility. He can get out and run. We want to try to establish the pace we want to play in the future. He’s a young kid, who still could potentially become a real solid player in the league, so that’s why we figured he was a good guy to bring in… He plays better in the open court. That’s what we want to try to establish anyway.”
