The Philadelphia 76ers have signed free agent point guard Raul Neto and re-signed small forward James Ennis III, the team announced on Friday.
Ennis, 29, joined the 76ers after a trade from the Rockets in February and averaged 5.3 points and 3.6 rebounds in 15.6 minutes in 18 games. The five-year vet has played for six teams since being taken 50th overall by the Atlanta Hawks in the 2013 NBA Draft.
“We are excited to welcome James back to the 76ers,” said general manager Elton Brand. “James had opportunities elsewhere, but he is determined to win here in Philadelphia.”
Neto, 27, was also originally drafted by the Hawks in 2013, but had spent his entire NBA career in Utah. He averaged 5.3 points and 2.5 assists in 12.8 minutes per game last season and figures to pick up backup point guard minutes in Philadelphia.
