Lakers News: Team Will Not Sign Manny Harris To Another Contract

Injuries forced the Lakers to bring up D-League star Manny Harris from their affiliate, the Los Angeles D-Fenders. Though Harris has played well in limited time, tonight will be his last game with the team, as the Lakers will not sign Harris to another contract, as first reported by the OC Register’s Bill Oram:

This move shouldn’t come as a surprise. Harris had already signed two 10-day contracts so the Lakers would have had to sign him for the rest of the season, and the team wasn’t willing to do that. Not to mention, with a somewhat healthy roster, there is no room for Harris.

Steve Blake and Steve Nash will both make their return tonight, while Jordan Farmar will come back tomorrow. With Xavier Henry and Kobe Bryant likely to return within a month, and Nick Young and Jodie Meeks playing exceptional basketball, Harris would have been hard-pressed to be on the active roster, let alone get regular minutes.

Harris will eventually land somewhere as he is far too talented to not make an NBA roster at some point. He is a hard nosed player who isn’t afraid to take his shot when he sees it.

In eight games, Harris averaged seven points and three rebounds for the Lakers.

    Still as spot for him in the league, did more than some as a bench player.

    Manny Harris is having a great first half tonight and now Jodie Meeks is injured.Put 2 and 2 together and Lakers might just reconsider tbh.

  • LakersHeatBeef

    Manny knows his career is on the line tonight.5-5 12 Points perfect.

  • LakersHeatBeef

    Harris has 13 points actually.

  • LakersHeatBeef

    Urgent message to the Lakers FO keep Manny Harris because this is the same Manny Harris that was averaging 30 points in the D-League and number 1 prospect in teh D-League,tonight he proved his game can translate to the NBA.Must reconsider and he is a keeper IMO.Don’t let him getaway.

    After more injuries and his good production in limited time…Lakers would be dumb to let him go. He’s got just as much potential as Marshall…just needs time.

  • Russ

    I dont get it…They are still short on bodies..and Manny can play and was helping them..Not a wise decision.
