10-day contract

EL SEGUNDO - The Los Angeles Lakers have signed guard Manny Harris to a second 10-day contract, it was announced today by General Manager Mitch Kupchak. 

In five games with the Lakers this season, Harris is averaging 6.4 points, 3.6 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 20.9 minutes.

Before signing his first 10-Day contract with the Lakers on January 16th, Harris was most recently a member of the Los Angeles D-Fenders, the Lakers’ NBA Development League affiliate, and was the D-League’s leading scorer at 30.6 points per game. Overall, in 13 games with the D-Fenders (13 starts) this season, Harris averaged 30.6 points, 6.5 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 2.1 steals while shooting 48.5% from the field. On January 13, Harris was named the NBA D-League Performer of the Week for the second consecutive time, and fourth time in his career.

 In his previous 80 career NBA games (20 starts) with the Cleveland Cavaliers during the 2010-11 and 2011-12 seasons, the Detroit, Michigan native averaged 6.2 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 17.4 minutes per game.

———————————

Not a surprising move by the Lakers to keep Manny Harris for another 10 days. The injured guards situation looks like it could be improving over the next couple of weeks but at the moment, Kendall Marshall remains the only healthy point guard on the roster.

Harris has done a nice job in the time he has been given, but would most likely need to show a lot more if the Lakers decide to keep him through the rest of the season.

To help with their depleted roster, the Lakers have signed Los Angeles D-Fenders guard Manny Harris to a 10-day contract.

In 13 games with the D-Fenders, the 6’5″ guard has averaged 30.6 points and 6.5 rebounds per game. In his last three games, Harris averaged 43.0 points on 60 percent shooting.

Just a few days ago, Harris was named the NBA Development League Performer of the Week. On January 10th, Harris set a D-Fenders single game scoring mark, scoring 49 points to go with six rebounds and three assists, in a 133-124 victory over the Idaho Stampede. It was his second consecutive Performer of the Week award and the fourth of his career.

Harris entered the 2010 NBA Draft after forgoing his senior season at the University of Michigan, but went undrafted before signing with the Cleveland Cavaliers. He has played in 80 NBA games over two seasons, averaging 6.2 points a game.

Harris will wear #3 for the Lakers and join the team in Boston.
