Andrew Harrison Set To Play In Russia

After being waived by the Pelicans last month, veteran guard Andrew Harrison has reportedly lined up a new deal overseas, writes Emiliano Carchia of Sportando. According to Carchia, Harrison has signed a contract with Khimki in Russia and will finish the 2018/19 season with the EuroLeague club.

While Khimki has yet to officially announce the signing of Harrison, the team did confirm today (via Twitter) that it has parted ways with American guard Dee Bost, so it makes sense that Harrison would fill that roster spot.

The 44th overall pick in the 2015 draft, Harrison spent his rookie season in the G League before joining the Grizzlies in 2016. After spending two years in Memphis, the 24-year-old was waived early in the 2018/19 campaign. He signed two-way contracts with the Cavaliers and Pelicans but was waived by both clubs.

In 145 total NBA contests (20.6 MPG), the former Kentucky Wildcat has recorded 7.0 PPG, 2.8 APG, and 2.0 RPG with a shooting line of .373/.294/.779. If his stint in Russia goes well, Harrison would likely look to parlay that success into an NBA return next season.
