Last year in summer league, the Heat had two players on their roster that no one in South Florida had heard of in Ennis and Johnson.

Both players would end up on Miami’s roster during the 2014-15 season as key role players. While Ennis made the opening day roster, Johnson was called up to the active roster from the Heat’s D-League affiliate in January of 2015.

Ennis averaged five points while playing 17 minutes per game in 62 appearances while Johnson averaged 5.9 points in 32 games played.
