James Ennis told Alykhan Bijani, of The Athletic, that he would get benched if he does not have a career high in 3-point attempts.
"Coach D'Antoni told me in the meeting that if I don't shoot double or have a career year in 3-point attempts then he's gonna bench me. He wants me to shoot as many threes as possible." This is not too surprising as Ennis is expected to fill the shoes of Trevor Ariza. Carmelo Anthony should not snipe many of Ennis' minutes as Ennis was brought in for his defensive versatility. He's a deep league flier right now but is in the perfect situation to shine.
