Meet your newest Rocket, James Ennis.

NBA: Memphis Grizzlies at Houston Rockets Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

According to Shams Charania, the Rockets have signed forward James Ennis to a two-year deal.

Ennis will at least be a Rocket for the upcoming season and whether or not he continues his contract is in his hands with a player option for 2019-20.

Ennis, 28, has played for Miami, Memphis, New Orleans, and Detroit in his four-year career. Last season, Ennis split time with the Grizzlies and Pistons with 7.1 points per game and shot 33.3 percent from three-point land.

With the Rockets losing both Trevor Ariza and Luc Mbah a Moute this offseason, an addition needed to be made and Ennis is one of the better small forward options left at small forward left in free agency. Last season, Ennis scored 7.1 points per game and grabbed 3.1 rebounds per game. He is a career 35.9 percent three-point shooter and should look to provide some defense on top of his three-point threat.
