Canton Charge guard Manny Harris has been signed to a 10-day contract by the Cleveland Cavaliers per Cavaliers general manager Chris Grant.
Harris was named the NBA Development League player of the week for Feb. 13-19 for the second time this season.
He has played 17 games this season with the Charge, including 12 starts, and is averaging 21.4 points, 7.9 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game. He is also shooting .470 from the field. In his last three games Harris has scored 24, 46 and 36 points respectively.
Harris spent time with the Cavaliers last season, playing in 54 games and averaging 5.9 points per game.
The way I look at this is that the Cavaliers bench is slowly dwindling down due to injuries to Daniel Gibson, Anthony Parker and Anderson Varejao and Cleveland is still searching for part-time “fillers.” Harris could be a very big addition for the Cavs, most likely coming off the bench for Ramon Sessions and Kyrie Irving late in the first and third quarters and early in the second and fourth quarters.
Harris will be available to play in tonight’s game versus the Detroit Pistons (11-22) at 7 p.m. at Quicken Loans Arena.
