A report came out on Twitter a couple hours ago that Oregon senior Dylan Ennis is going to work out for the Clippers next week. He will also be working out for the Kings and Spurs, and has already performed for the Thunder, Celtics, and Raptors. Clearly there is some interest to Ennis, and Doc wants a closer look.
Ennis played for five years at the collegiate level at three different schools: Rice, Villanova, and Oregon. The older brother of Lakers’ guard Tyler Ennis, Dylan is old for a prospect, turning 26 in December (he was in college for six years, playing at Oregon as a graduate transfer). He’s 6’2, therefore the size of a point guard, but his assist numbers don’t really tell the story of a lead guard.
Ennis averaged 10.9 points, 4.4 rebounds, and 3.1 assists per game in his final year at Oregon, all in only 31.7 minutes of action. He shot a respectable 42.9% from the field and 35.8% from three (on 3.8 attempts per game) while shooting 73.7% from the free throw line (on 2.9 attempts per game). Clearly more of a combo guard in the Austin Rivers mold, Ennis’s ceiling is very low as an NBA player, but his age and experience should allow him to play fairly quickly if he makes an NBA roster.
The exact date of his workout is unknown right now, but we should have more information on it in the coming days (as well as other participants, I would guess).
