Ennis reaches agreement to return to 76ers on two-year contract

Small forward James Ennis appeared in a total of 58 games last season with the 76ers and Rockets.

Free agent small forward James Ennis has agreed to re-sign with the Philadelphia 76ers on a two-year contract, according to Shams Charania of Stadium.

The deal is reportedly worth $4.1 million.

“Ennis turned down more salary from multiple teams to return to a championship contender,” Charania reported.

The 76ers have had quite an offseason, trading Jimmy Butler to the Miami Heat for Josh Richardson, and agreeing to a deal with veteran center Al Horford (as well as re-upping with Tobias Harris).

Ennis, 29, was acquired by the 76ers in a trade with the Houston Rockets during the season. He averaged 6.7 points and 3.1 rebounds in 58 games combined.
