James Ennis RumorsAll NBA Players
Barring trades involving Mario Chalmers or Chris Andersen, forward James Ennis appears the only incumbent Heat player at risk of being cut, with his $845,059 salary becoming fully guaranteed on Oct. 28. Ennis, who disappointed the Heat in summer league, is fortunate that the Heat hasn’t used its roster spots on an established veteran who wants to be here (such as Rasual Butler, who expressed interest).
The only remaining player on a partially guaranteed contract is guard Tyler Johnson, who had 50 percent of his $845,050 2015-16 salary guaranteed on Aug. 1. Otherwise, forward James Ennis has a opening-night guarantee deadline for his entire 2015-16 salary, with recently added free agents Keith Benson, Corey Hawkins and Greg Whittington guaranteed until Jan. 10.
