on't look for James Ennis to be playing for the Miami Heat next season.

 Those close to the situation believe the second-round pick likely will head overseas. And his agent said Monday he's making calls with that in mind.


"There's a good chance he'll play overseas (next season)" Scott Nichols said by phone to FOX Sports Florida.



Nichols said a final decision is expected to be made by the end of the week when he talks further with Heat president Pat Riley. Nichols said he's having discussions with teams in France Russia Australia Italy and Germany about Ennis.



Ennis a 6-foot-7 swingman out of Long Beach State was taken with the No. 50 overall pick in June by Atlanta and then traded to the Heat for a future second-round pick. He looked good in the summer league but the Heat have ample wing players and want to avoid paying as much luxury tax as possible.

"I think he'll definitely be playing for the Heat (in 2014-15)" Nichols said. "They like him and they have a lot of wings who will be free agents next summer: Shane Battier Ray Allen Rashard Lewis James Jones."

Nichols said it "was a shock at first" for Ennis when he heard about the possibility of playing abroad for a year. But Nichols said Ennis now understands it could be beneficial.

"A lot of young players would love the opportunity to go overseas and then be able to play for the Miami Heat" Nichols said.
