During the first few days of boot camp, it was rumored that James Ennis III, a free agent and member of the Orlando Magic last season, will end up landing in the Lakers. But a few days before the start of the regular season, the Los Angeles team has not moved and the player is still without a team.
And not because it is not sold on a good basis. Even in the networks. And is that Ennis posted a tweet in which he literally begged the Lakers to be signed.
The 31-year-old forward knows exactly what wound to poke into. The message put it immediately after the defeat of the Lakers against the Suns (123-94). It was the fourth defeat in four games of a preparation in which Angelenos are bleeding in defense. Against Phoenix, LA suffered its third loss, conceding more than 120 points. In the rest he took 117. Ennis highlighted one of his virtues to try to convince the Lakers: “I can play defense: sign up now“.
The Lakers haven’t set off the alarms because they know it’s about preseason and that there are teams that even do preseason once it has started the regular league, already with all its troops, but the feelings in the yellow team are not too good at the moment.
For Ennis, a window has been opened for LeBron James’ team to regain interest in him. Trevor Ariza’s injury could put a contract on his table for this season. For now, he has already taken the step ‘begging’ the team for his hiring.
