The Houston Rockets and James Ennis have agreed to a deal per Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports.

The deal sends Ennis to Houston for two years, while the amount of money he agreed to has not yet been released. The second year on the contract includes a player option.

The Rockets likley made this move to improve on the length and defensive ability the team lost when Mbah a Moute and Trevor Ariza left in Free Agency. Ennis averaged 7.1 points per game, 1.7 defensive rebounds and 0.6 steals playing in a Detroit Pistons’ jersey. Ennis is a well-known perimeter defender who can lock-down dangerous players and come up big when a stop is needed for his team.
