FYI: Cavs Release Manny Harris
D Mo re-signed with the Lakers for just under a mil. All this and more from UMHoops.com
He's been fighting an uphill battle since he was injured last offseason. The Cavs draft pretty much guaranteed he wouldn't have a spot. I was optimistic after he seemed to have a decent rookie season. Best of luck to him whether it be with another NBA team, the NBDL or overseas.
Sucks that he has to leave the beautiful city of Cleveland for shitty old Europe.
Maybe he can follow Lebron to Miami and win a ring like Juwan Howard...
Now the cavs need to sign Dave Lighty.
The Pistons could use him as a cheaper alternative to Stuckey.
^Agreed. Man leaving Cleveland??? what a drag......
And entering Detroit, aka "The Land of Opportunity'. What an upgrade for him
And as a clearly inferior player than Stuckey to take up a roster spot
I don't want Harris to go to training camp with the Pistons. The Pistons just drafted Kim English and Khris Middleton in the second round, and have Vyacheslav Kravstov and Kyle Singler coming over from Europe. This means that, (including Andre Drummond), the Pistons will have 15-16 players heading into next season (depending of course if the Pistons amnesty Charlie Villanueva and if they bring back Vernon Macklin).
In summary, Manny Harris will have it easier making another team.
Granted he played on a pretty atrocious team, but Harris increased his scoring average, even after the adversity due to the weird injury. I think he'll get a spot on another team, but he'll likely need to earn his roster spot the hard way just like his first two years.
Sidenote: After seeing Danny Green start on the dominant San Antonio Spurs, how impressive is it that Harris beat out Green for the initial spot on the Cavs?
A Michigan Man shouldn't be in Ohio (especially Cleveland).
Pistons should sign him so I actually have a reason to watch them.
He would probably not make the team. Knight, Monroe and Drummond are plenty reason enough to watch IMO
Good for him, in a way - Cleveland isn't going to be good for a couple of years, and he wasn't a good fit for their future based on their drafts. Hopefully he'll land somewhere with some playing time.
I think they both could have benefitted from 1 more year of college. I know Morris is in a better situation than Manny right now but part of me can't help but think they deserve better and could have gotten better.
