As per Ian Begley, the Knicks are keeping an eye on James Ennis of the Sixers.
Ennis, who declined his $1.8 million player option earlier this month, is a potential budget pick for a lot of teams. The Knicks are hoping to sign big-named free agents this summer but will also need to fill out their roster with a balance of role-players. They have their eye on Terry Rozier but have competition from the Hornets as far as landing him is concerned.

James Ennis, who last month declined his $1.8 million player option with the Sixers for next season, had high praise for the city of Philadelphia and the Sixers organization saying, "I love the fans. I love how they support the team. I like Philly a lot and I would love to come back."
Ennis was a critical piece of the Sixers rotation down the stretch and in the playoffs. His decision to decline his player option was less to do with a desire to play elsewhere and more to do with the soon-to-be 29-year old looking to get a multi-year contract at a higher average salary. Ennis should have quite a few teams looking to acquire his services after the big free agent dominos fall.

James Ennis III scored 13 points to go with six rebounds, two assists, two threes and a block in 24 minutes on Monday in the Sixers' Game 2 victory.
Ennis shot 4-for-10 from the field and 3-for-5 from the line tonight. He was more involved tonight and his role is likely to stick with Mike Scott not expected back soon.

James Ennis III got in for 21 minutes vs. the Raptors in Saturday's Game 1 to put up 11 points, one board, one assist and one 3-pointer.
The Sixers need every bit of help they can get from their bench unit if they have plans of upsetting the Raptors in the second round. Ennis was the leading scorer off the bench for the Sixers but it obviously wasn't enough against the rampage of the Raptors.

James Ennis III has been cleared to play more than 12 minutes in Thursday’s matchup against the Nets but coach Brett Brown didn’t specify an exact number of minutes that he would be limited to.
The Sixers can use all the help they can get off of their bench and Ennis III is a valuable member of that unit. Expect him to play around the 20 minute limit but with no official word from head coach Brown, it will be hard to predict.

James Ennis III (right quad contusion) got in for 12 minutes vs. the Nets in Monday's Game 2 to put up six points, three rebounds and one assist after barely playing in Game 1.
The Sixers will take all the useful bench help they can get right now so they don't have to run their four stars into the ground early in the playoffs. Ennis could see more minutes in Thursday's Game 3, as he wasn't needed in the fourth quarter at all in this one.

James Ennis (right quad contusion) is a game-time decision on Monday and will only be used for about 12 minutes if he's deemed available.

James Ennis (right quad contusion) has been cleared to play in Monday's Game 2.
Ennis was listed as doubtful and was set to be re-evaluated in a few days, but he's back ahead of schedule and will help bolster a Philadelphia bench group that needs all the help it can get. Ennis might not play his usual role right away, but Jonathon Simmons is the most likely to dip out of the rotation as a result of the swingman's return.

James Ennis (right quad contusion) is doubtful for Monday's Game 2 with the Nets.
Ennis was initially set to be re-evaluated a couple days from now so we wouldn't expect him to return before Game 4 despite the technical upgrade here. When he returns he may take some minutes from Jonathon Simmons, and his shooting will help Philly out a bit in the second unit.

James Ennis played 58 games for two of the top teams in the NBA, but did not produce relative to the role he was given.
Ennis came into the season with high hopes from Houston as their Trevor Ariza replacement on the wing, but he never got into a groove. After being traded to Philadelphia, he started slowly before finally playing well off the bench, but that was followed up by a quad injury that is still holding him out. Ennis finished the year right around the top-250 in 8 and 9-cat formats.

James Ennis (right quad) will be re-evaluated in two weeks.
Ennis had emerged as one of the better wing options off the bench of late but the Sixers will now need to plug the holes in their already-questionable depth. Mike Scott and Jonathon Simmons should see the most additional run at the forward spots.

Sixers head coach Brett Brown told reporters that James Ennis III has re-injured his quad and his timetable is unknown.
This is a blow to a Sixers team that has already been criticized for a lack of depth. With Ennis out for the near future, look for Jonathon Simmons and Mike Scott to pick up additional minutes while the starters may be asked to do even more.

The Sixers are ruling James Ennis III (right quad contusion) out ahead of Thursday's tilt against the Bucks.
Ennis missed last night and this may result in a few games off. Although he didn't play at all on Wednesday, Jonathon Simmons could see more playing time against the Bucks, while Mike Scott and T.J. McConnell are also in line for additional minutes.
