The Nets have signed guard Shaquille Harrison to a second 10-day contract, the team announced today in a press release. The move was completed using a hardship exception.
Harrison, who was initially on a 10-day deal with Brooklyn from December 18-27, appeared in two games for the team during that time, averaging 2.0 PPG, 2.0 RPG, and 1.5 APG in 11.5 minutes per contest. The 28-year-old is known more for his ability to defend than for his contributions on the offensive end.
Harrison and James Ennis both had their 10-day deals with the Nets expire on Monday night. As our JD Shaw noted on Tuesday (via Twitter), Brooklyn opted not to re-sign Ennis since Kevin Durant and LaMarcus Aldridge were exiting the health and safety protocols. However, with Kyrie Irving working on his conditioning and rookie guards David Duke and Cam Thomas still in the protocols, the club apparently decided it was worth retaining Harrison for another 10 days.
Brooklyn now has three players on hardship contracts. Wenyen Gabriel‘s deal runs through Thursday, while Langston Galloway‘s expires next Wednesday night.
One thought on “Nets Re-Sign Shaquille Harrison”
They probably will let Gabriel’s deal expire. As long as Nash has enough for a rotation, he’s not going to keep the 10-day players beyond their current contracts. Galloway and Harrison should be gone after their second 10-day contract because I can’t see Marks signing either for the rest of the season.
