The Nets intend to sign guard Shaquille Harrison to a 10-day contract, according to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports.
As we relayed earlier, the Nets are also signing small forward James Ennis, via the hardship exception.
Harrison, 28, is 6-foot-7 and plays both guard positions. He appeared in a total of 34 regular-season games for the Jazz and Nuggets last season, coming off the bench for both teams.
He then became an unrestricted free agent, signing with the 76ers for training camp. The Sixers waived him before the season.
The Nets are fairly shorthanded, with forward Paul Millsap entering health and safety protocol on Monday, followed by followed by forwards LaMarcus Aldridge, James Johnson and DeAndre’ Bembry and guard Jevon Carter on Tuesday morning.
Guards James Harden and Bruce Brown entered after that on Wednesday, prior to the Nets’ win over the 76ers.
“ESPN’s Bobby Marks reported that Brooklyn could have up to as many as five hardship exceptions to try to fill out their roster with more than the eight bodies they had available Tuesday, but that each one of them would cost Brooklyn close to $500,000 in luxury taxes,” wrote Tim Bontemps of ESPN.
