Harrison’s $2,413,304 salary for 2023/24 was non-guaranteed, so the move creates some cap space and roster flexibility ahead of free agency.
The veteran guard spent most of the ’22/23 season in the G League for the South Bay Lakers, L.A.’s affiliate, earning a spot on the NBAGL All-Defensive Team. He signed a 10-day deal with the Blazers at the end of the season before signing with the Lakers for the playoffs.
Harrison didn’t appear in any regular season games for the Lakers, but did play 28 minutes over eight playoff games. The 29-year-old defensive stalwart will hit unrestricted free agency in a couple days assuming he clears the waiver wire.
