EL SEGUNDO  –  The Los Angeles D-Fenders have acquired guard Manny Harris from the Canton Charge in exchange for a 2014 second round draft pick, it was announced today by D-Fenders General Manager Nick Mazzella.

Harris (6’5” / 185) averaged 21.4 points, 7.9 rebounds and 3.3 assists in 17 D-League games for the Charge during the 2011-12 season.  A two-year NBA veteran, Harris has also appeared in 80 career games with the Cleveland Cavaliers posting averages of 6.2 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.5 assists.  The Detroit native most recently played for Azovmash Mariupol, of the Ukranian Superleague, during the 2012-13 season before taking part in training camp with the Orlando Magic this season.
