Season Summary
Tyler Ennis spent much of the season serving as the Lakers' second-unit point guard, averaging 4.1 points and 1.9 assists.

The second-year point guard's role tended to fluctuate, as he also made a handful of starts when Lonzo Ball went down and was relegated to the bench to give backcourt minutes to Brandon Ingram and Alex Caruso.

Ennis' production was similar to what he provided the Lakers the year before. The main difference was his trouble from the perimeter, as his 3-point percentage dropped from 38.6 to 25.0.

By the Numbers
4.63: Miles per hour averaged on the court - the fastest speed on the team.

11: Starts made by Ennis, who only started 10 games in his first three seasons.

20: Points scored in an overtime loss to Houston on Dec. 31. He also had a season-high 11 assists.

What's Next
Ennis has been on four teams in four seasons and is looking to find himself a more permanent situation in the NBA.

The former No. 18 overall pick is still just 23 years old and has plenty of development ahead of him.
