2017: Re-signing Tyler Ennis
We had to get a little creative on this one as the Los Angeles Lakers did not really have any traditional free-agent signings during this offseason period. However, they did re-sign some players, including Tyler Ennis.
The Lakers re-signed Ennis after coming over from the Houston Rockets via trade the season prior. The Lakers were convinced enough by Ennis to give him a one-year minimum contract. Again, it did not end up burning the team, but it certainly was not a good signing.
Ennis played 54 games for the Los Angeles Lakers in the 2017-18 season and started 11. The guard averaged 4.1 points, 1.9 assists and 1.8 rebounds in 12.6 minutes per game. He had some flashes where he looked really solid, but all-in-all, he proved to be a backend rotation piece at the very best.
That is displayed by the fact that Ennis has not played in the NBA since his one-year contract with the Lakers. Following that season, Ennis signed with Turkish basketball club, Fenerbahçe, before being signed to the Toronto Raptors G League team the year following.
He did not spend last season in the G League as he returned to Turkey to play on Türk Telekom. He plays on the same team as former Houston Rockets teammate, Sam Dekker.
