Aaron Harrison Opts To Play In Turkey

Former Hornets and Mavericks guard Aaron Harrison has reached an agreement to play with Galatasaray in the Turkish league, according to a Sportando report.

Harrison will sign a one-year deal after protracted negotiations to continue his career overseas. In mid-August, Harrison backed out of an agreement to join Galatasaray.

Harrison was not tendered a qualifying offer this summer by Dallas and became a unrestricted free agent. He joined the Wizards’ summer league team but shot poorly in five Las Vegas games, making just 19% of his attempts while averaging 5.8 PPG and 3.0 RPG in 15.4 MPG.

The former Kentucky Wildcat appeared in nine games, including three starts, with Dallas last season after signing a 10-day deal and then a rest-of-the-season contract in early April. The 6’6” Harrison averaged 6.7 PPG in 25.9 MPG but shot just 27.5% from the field. He saw action in a combined 26 games with Charlotte the previous two seasons.

The Turkish team also has an agreement with forward Nigel Hayes, who played for three different NBA franchises last season.
