New Orleans Hornets are looking to fill up the vacancy in the backcourt left by the injured Austin Rivers, and will sign Terrel Harris to a 10-day contract.

Marc Stein, of ESPN, tweeted the following:

Rivers is most likely done for the season, so Harris would directly fill Rivers’ role.

The 25-year-old shooting guard played for the Miami Heat last year, and started this season with his former team. He was sent to the D-League and only appeared in 7 games for the NBA champions in 2012-13, playing 4.1 minutes per game. Harris was waived by the Heat in January.
