Ennis, 29, reportedly had better offers on the table, but wanted to play for a championship contender. Ennis averaged 6.7 points per game last season off the bench. He has experience playing for six NBA teams in his five-year NBA career.
The 76ers do not currently have much guard depth, so Ennis could see an increased role next season. He is capable of stretching the floor, which is something the 76ers need to do in order for their stars, Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons, to be effective.
