Andrew Harrison To Sign In D-League

Second-round pick Andrew Harrison will sign with the D-League affiliate of the Grizzlies, the team that holds his NBA rights, according to Chris Herrington of The Commercial Appeal (Twitter link). Memphis announced its 20-man camp roster earlier today, and it doesn’t include Harrison, this year’s 44th overall selection. The Grizzlies can still sign him at any point to the NBA roster, though they’d have to make a corresponding move, since they don’t have an open roster spot.

The Suns made Harrison the 44th overall selection this June and traded his rights shortly thereafter to Memphis for Jon Leuer. The Kevin Bradbury client can’t negotiate with any other NBA teams, though he did have the option of signing a one-year, $525,093 minimum salary tender without a guarantee that the Grizzlies had to make this month to retain his draft rights. The point guard who turns 21 next month has evidently decided against that, and he’ll instead start the year on a D-League contract making no more than $25,500.

Harrison was the fifth-ranked prospect in the Recruiting Services Consensus Index coming out of high school in 2013, but his stock fell precipitously in college. He joins No. 48 pick Dakari Johnson, No. 51 pick Tyler Harvey, No. 52 pick Satnam Singh and No. 53 pick Sir’Dominic Pointer among this year’s second-rounders expected to sign in the D-League, as our draft picks signings page indicates. Harrison’s twin brother, Aaron, went undrafted but is with the Hornets on a deal that’s partially guaranteed for $75K.

    The only way Andrew will be anything in the NBA is if he comes to reality that he isn’t as good as he thinks he is. I feel he should deserve a spot on a team, but he is gonna have to work to get there. (Coming from a UK fan)

    Not taking the $500k+ is a classic example of current day entitlement. This kid thinks that a million dollar contract is his right! Hey Andrew! how bout you display some humility, take the $500k and earn your way to a million dollar contract. You may some day look back at this stupid decision and wonder why you ever turned down that much money. Considering you didn’t finish your degree, when basketball days are over and Father Time brings your skills down to earth, you may find that $25k per year is all you are worth in today’s job market. Skilled people are making that or less these days. At that salary it would take you 20 years to make $500k. Just think about that and put it into some perspective.
