Former Syracuse Orange guard Tyler Ennis has been traded to the Los Angeles Lakers, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.
Ennis’s former team, the Houston Rockets, will receive Marcelo Huertas in the deal but plan to waive him for salary cap purposes, according to Wojnarowski.
Ennis is the second former SU player to be traded in the last two days. Yesterday, former one-and-done forward Chris McCullough was traded from the Nets to the Wizards.
Ennis, who only played one season at Syracuse, helped the Orange get out to a program-best 25-0 record in the 2013-14 season. He averaged 12.9 points and 5.5 assists per game, and was selected 18th overall in the 2014 NBA draft by the Phoenix Suns. He was traded the the Milwaukee Bucks before the 2015 trade deadline.
The Lakers will be Ennis’s fourth team thus far in his short NBA career.
In 110 career NBA games, Ennis is averaging 3.5 points, 1.8 assists and 1.5 rebounds per game.
Most Syracuse fans will remember Ennis for this famous shot he hit against Pittsburgh a few years back.
Best of luck in L.A., Tyler!
