The New Orleans Pelicans have signed James Ennis to a 10-day contract.
The Pelicans' continued injury issues will allow them to add another player.
Jrue Holiday, Alonzo Gee, Anthony Davis, Tyreke Evans, Quincy Pondexter and Eric Gordon are all out for the season.
Ennis is the 18th player on the Pelicans’ payroll, three more than the maximum allowed on a healthy NBA roster, but the league’s injury exception policy has allowed Dell Demps to add players to backfill the roster.
“We had more people in our picture than the Saints did in their team picture,” Alvin Gentry joked on Monday night.
Ennis played in 62 games with the Miami Heat last season, averaging 5 points, 2.8 rebounds and shooting 41 percent from the field in 17 minutes per game.
