The Lakers signed Manny Harris from the @DFenders to a 10-day contract. He averaged 43.0 points on 60% FG's in his last 3 games.

 

tall scoring point guard.  Should fit the 'spark plug off the bench' role that Farmar does.  But he'll be trying to attack the rim like X more than he'll spot up threes like Farmar.   

The guy averaged 10-12 free throws a game in the dleague for a reason.

Excited to see him play but lets not hope he helps us win some games. Gotta keep this tank moving forward.

The kid is a scoring point guard, he does his scoring on his mid range shot and his ability to get to the basket. 

Not much for passing though.   He's a guy worth taking a chance on over Arenas at this point.  

 

He's a 6 foot 5 point guard so he can cause matchup problems.  He has some athleticism and tries on defense, can do work on the post so that causes issues for other points. 

He's not super fast, but he has finishing ability, has potential to be a good defender if he uses it.  

Also an alright to good rebounder. 
He is good at using his body to draw fouls and he shot 87% from the free throw line in the dleague while averaging 10-12 free throw attempts a game. 
Good at playing the passing lane and his length leads to steals. 

A very nice project to say the least.  

The only thing missing is a consistent three point shot but he can make the mid range and finish at the rim.  

He can also be turnover prone 


he is an alright passer as well, he can pass, but his first thought is to score.   Filling Farmar's sparkplug role is likely what he'll be asked to do and it suits him.  

If he pans out the Lakers will have found another gem. 

These are exactly the kind of guys we should be looking for right now.  Some will work out and some won't but the rest of the year should be used to play then and sort them out.

Lets hope he has some balls and stands up for his new teammates unlike some of the other scrubs on this team.

Jodie Meeks to the Spurs?

Just a thought, a guy on bleacher report brought it up that Meeks would fit San Antonio well. I don't want anything from them but kawhi and they ain't trading him for Meeks, but I'm guessing the Lakers would get one or a combo of a pick, Nando de colo or Cory Joseph or patty mills.

When a career D-League player gets close to maintaining their stats in the NBA, then I'll be impressed.

Just an extra body right now, no big deal.

Posting this for the last time: Everything you need to know about Manny Harris' 49 point night vs. Stampede last week http://www.ridiculousupside.com/2014/1/11/5298026/manny-harris-breaks-the-d-fenders-franchise-record-49-points-lakers 

 
 
Harris did the bulk of his damage in the opening quarter, when he scored 21 points, grabbed three offensive rebounds and dished out two assists. (Ironically, it was the only quarter on the night that the Stampede outscored the D-Fenders). He continued to give them fits as the night wore on with some balanced scoring and it proved to be too much for the Stampede, who went on to lose by a final score of 133-to-124.
 
During the Showcase, there were reports that NBA teams were meeting with Harris in the intent of signing him to a 10-day contract. One of the teams interested: The Oklahoma City Thunder, who are in need of a scoring punch with their recent loss of Russell Westbrook. While we wait to see if any of that comes to fruition, it's hard to imagine the former Wolverine staying around the D-League for much longer. He was recently named D-League Player of the Week and through 11 games on the season, he's averaging 28.9 points, 6.9 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 2.3 steals on 47.1 percent shooting from the floor. He also finds himself as the fifth best player the D-League has to offer, according to the Prospect Watch list.
 



yay we stole him from the Thunder who were thinking about bringing him in  :laughing:

In the highlight video, he just looked bigger than everybody else. He wasn't playing against any size. I didn't really see a thing that impressed me.

Think someone like X that is actually a point guard, and you have him in a nutshell.  Better free throw shooter though.
