NBA Signings: MANNY HARRIS BACK

Mannyharristweet_medium

The Cavaliers broke the "obvious roster move" machine when they announced on Tuesday that Manny Harris was signed to a 10-day contract. Manny played for the Cavs last season and played pretty well for an undrafted free agent.

During training camp, Harris suffered a freak foot injury that sidelined him for some time. It's pretty safe to say that if not for the foot injury, Manny would have made the team right out of camp instead of Mychel Thompson. As we know, Thompson was let go a few weeks ago.

Thompson's release opened up a roster spot which the Cavaliers used to sign Ben Uzoh. At the time, the Cavs were in need of point guard help because Kyrie Irving was recovering from a concussion. Once Uzoh's 10-day contract on Monday it became rather clear that Manny deserved to get a call.

With both Anthony Parker and Daniel Gibson working with annoying injuries, Harris could actually be slated for some pretty decent minutes with the Cavaliers. If you hadn't been paying attention, Manny has been tearing it up with the Canton Charge in the D-League. Harris has won D-League player of the week twice this season and is coming off a week in which he averaged 41 points, 9 rebounds, and 6 assists per game.

Over 17 games with the Charge, Manny Harris averaged 21.4 points, 7.9 rebounds, and 3.3 assists in 32.9 minutes per game.
