Shaquille Harrison Drawing EuroLeague Interest

Free agent guard Shaquille Harrison is drawing “strong interest” from EuroLeague teams, according to a report from

Harrison had eight brief playoff cameos for the Lakers in 2022/23. He signed with L.A. on the last day of the regular season following a 10-day hardship deal with the Trail Blazers.

The 29-year-old was waived by the Lakers at the end of last month before his non-guaranteed contract became fully guaranteed. He has yet to catch on with a new club, and could be heading to Europe for the first time.

Harrison went undrafted in 2016 after four college seasons at Tulsa. He spent his first two pro seasons playing in the NBA G League for the Northern Arizona Suns, Phoenix’s former affiliate team.

He was eventually promoted by the Suns, making his NBA debut as a rookie in 2017/18. In total, Harrison has appeared in 180 regular season games across six seasons with Phoenix, Chicago, Utah, Denver, Brooklyn and Portland, holding career averages of 5.3 PPG, 2.5 RPG, 1.7 APG and 1.0 SPG on .435/.281/.718 shooting in 15.4 MPG.

Harrison also had a 10-day hardship deal with Memphis last year, though he never played a game for the Grizzlies.

Known as strong defender, Harrison spent the majority of the past two seasons in the G League, winning NBAGL Defensive Player of the Year in ’21/22 and finishing third last season.
