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.
