The Jazz have waived Mike Harris in advance of today’s contract guarantee deadline, the team announced in a press release. Emiliano Carchia of Sportando passes along word from Puerto Rican team Leones de Ponce that Harris will sign with the team after leaving Utah.
Harris, a former MVP of the D-League, has spent parts of four seasons since 2007/08 with the Jazz, Rockets, and Wizards. In 20 contests for Utah this season (11.3 MPG), he recorded 4.2 PPG and 1.7 RPG, good for a solid 15.5 PER.
The move reduces Utah’s roster count to 14 players, creating a single opening. Ian Clark and Diante Garrett are also on non-guaranteed contracts, but with no announcement on either player yet, it looks like their spots on the roster may be safe.
