A former member of the Portland Trail Blazers has a new home in the NBA, according to ESPN insider Adrian Wojnarowski.
ESPN Sources: The Memphis Grizzlies plan to sign guards Shaq Harrison and Jaylen Nowell with two newly awarded hardship 10-day contracts. The NBA approved the hardship roster spots after Memphis had five players ruled out over the next two-plus weeks.
The Grizzlies have been devastated by injuries for the first part of the season, losing center Steven Adams for the year and Marcus Smart for 3-5 weeks with a lower leg injury. On top of that, All-Star Ja Morant has yet to play this year as part of his 25-game suspension for conduct detrimental to the league. The Grizzlies have started the year 3-11.
Harrison, 30, played five games with the Blazers last season, averaging 8.8 points, 6.0 assists, 4.4 rebounds and 2.2 steals per game. Now, he’ll have a chance to make an impact with the Grizzlies.
