PHILADELPHIA– The 76ers have finished overhauling the team’s roster at the NBA Trade Deadline by acquiring a three-point shooter from the Houston Rockets.

The team announced that it acquired F James Ennis from the Rockets for rights to swap the Rockets’ 2021 second-round pick for the Sixers’ 2021 second-rounder.

So far this season, Ennis has appeared in 40 games for the Rockets and is averaging 7.4 points and 2.9 rebounds per game.

He has been knocking down his three-point shots at a 36.7% clip this season.

Ennis will be a rotation piece of Philadelphia’s bench.
