The Houston Rockets have acquired 22-year old point guard Tyler Ennis from the Milwaukee Bucks for 27-year old small forward Michael Beasley. Ennis played in 46 games (7 starts) for the Bucks last year and he averaged 14.2 minutes, 4.5 points, 1.6 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game. He has now played in 79 games (8 starts) in his first two years in the NBA and he is averaging 13.5 minutes, 4.1 points, 1.4 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game. Ennis has also played in 1 playoff game off the bench in his career so far, working in 16 minutes in which he had 5 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists. Ennis will give the Rockets a solid backup at point guard behind Patrick Beverley in 2016-17. Ennis could replace him at some point down the road for the starting gig. Beasley played in 20 games (0 starts) for the Rockets last year and he averaged 18.2 minutes, 12.8 points, 4.9 rebounds and 0.8 assists per game. He also played in 5 games (0 starts) in the playoffs for the Rockets last year and he averaged 16.0 minutes, 10.4 points, 4.2 rebounds and 0.6 assists per game. I like this deal for the Rockets, as Ennis is a young player with a nice upside.
