Lakers News: Lakers Sign Manny Harris To 10-Day Contract

Idaho Stampede v Los Angeles D-Fenders

With the Lakers 14-25 and only nine available players, Los Angeles has reportedly decided to bolster their backcourt by signing D-Fenders guard Manny Harris to a 10-day contract.

According to ESPN’s Dave McMenamin, the D-Fenders guard will join the Lakers in Boston. In the past three games, Harris has been impressive, averaging 43 points on 60 percent shooting:

While he has played extremely well since being acquired from the Canton Charge, Harris has been on a tear lately. Over the past two weeks, he was named the D-League Performer of the Week. In 13 games for the Lakers’ D-League affiliate, Harris was averaging 30.6 points, 6.5 rebounds, 3.7 assists, and 2.1 steals.

With Nick Young possibly being suspended for his altercation with the Phoenix Suns, Harris’ ability to create off the dribble will be much needed. While Harris has played well in the D-League, this will be his first true opportunity to show that he belongs in the NBA.
