5:01pm: Harrison’s signing is official, the Grizzlies announced (via Twitter).
4:43pm: The Grizzlies will sign guard Shaquille Harrison to a 10-day contract under the hardship provision, tweets ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Harrison will be available for tonight’s game against the Bucks, according to Chris Herrington of The Daily Memphian (Twitter link).
Memphis is the only team with four players currently in health and safety protocols. Kyle Anderson and Desmond Bane both entered Tuesday night and Tyus Jones was added today, creating a need for backcourt help. Big man Killian Tillie was already in the protocols.
Harrison, 28, recently completed two 10-day hardship deals with the Nets. He only got into two games, averaging 2.0 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 11.5 minutes per night. Harrison began the season with the G League’s Delaware Blue Coats and returned to the team after his second contract with Brooklyn expired.
The Grizzlies will play five times in the next 10 days, so Harrison might get a greater opportunity with Memphis.
