Despite some conflicting reports on Monday, the trio of injured point guards — Steve Blake, Jordan Farmar and Steve Nash —  are all expected back in the coming days.  With that, Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily News reports the Los Angeles Lakers will not retain Manny Harris after his second 10-day contract expires on Tuesday.

As the Lakers became decimated by injuries, Harris was called up from the team’s D-League affiliate on Jan. 16, in time for him to make his Laker debut at the storied Boston Garden.  Still dealing with injuries to the backcourt, Harris was signed to a second 10-day contract on Jan. 26.

Per NBA rules, had the Lakers wished to keep Harris on their roster, they would have been required to sign him for the remainder of the season. While appearing in eight games with the Lakers, Harris averaged 6.8 points per game in 19.9 minutes of action. Harris’ best performance in his brief stint in the NBA came in a Sunday matinee game against the New York Knicks, where he scored 18 points on 6-of-9 shooting in 19 minutes.

    Not surprised. Hopefully, he got enough exposer to get picked up by another team. He’s a good player.

      Agreed

    Manny Harris played okay now he hopefully gets another chance in the NBA.This kid Terrence Williams has been playing great in the D-League,he is a former lottery pick he was the 11th pick in 2009 and he has NBA experience he is 26 years old and he plays on the D-Fenders now,he is the player of the month and he set the franchise record for scoring 50 points recently.The Lakers might give him a 10 day contract possibly.They should do it and see how it works out IMO.

    Manny bought himself a PS4 with his money earned lol.Good dude.

  • RRRRRRR

    Don’t worry Lakers will retain Many Harris because Blake, Farmar, and Nash are like glass. They’ll get injured again soon.

  • Daspin

    Getting rid of Manny fits into the deliberate tanking strategy.

  • Dragon7s

    Best of luck Manny, wherever you land.

    It was evident from your limited time on the Lakers that you have heart and a great desire to play and win.

    Shame on Laker management. Management has a duty to field a full roster for the safety of the reduced number of players able to suit-up and for the edification of the fans. Absurd the Lakers take the floor with only eight players against Cleveland. Didn’t management see the real risk of new injuries and fouling-outs? Cutting Manny Harris was just the latest of a long string of management bad decisions.
