6:09pm: It’s official, the team’s PR department tweets.
4:20pm: The Knicks are converting Jared Harper‘s two-way contract into a 10-day contract, Steve Popper of Newsday tweets. Since New York has an open spot on its 15-man roster, no corresponding move is required.
It’s likely that Harper will eventually receive a second 10-day, which would last until the end of the regular season or very close to it.
It’s a nifty raise for Harper. He was making $3,076 per day on his two-way. He will make $9,902 per day on a 10-day contract.
The 23-year-old point guard out of Auburn has made four brief appearances with New York. He saw action in three games with Phoenix last season.
Harper was claimed off waivers in June. Though he hasn’t seen much NBA action, he excelled in the G League season at the Orlando bubble. In 12 G League contests this season, Harper averaged 21.3 PPG and 7.0 APG and was named to the All-NBA G League First Team.
Harper spoke to Hoops Rumors earlier this season about his experience in the G League and the time he has spent on the Knicks’ roster.

He deserves a spot on the team
Highest paid cheerleader around …… yeaaahh
He’s a scorer. At 23 he needs to get mins somewhere. He played well in G-league.
I feel bad for Harper. He’s been very impressive at every pre-NBA stop (college, summer league and G-league). His pure PG skills are borderline elite, and he’s a natural leader on the court. Can’t do more. Still, I think his size (tiny) and athletic ability (mediocre) will prevent him from ever getting a real chance in the NBA.
