Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington is reporting the Wizards have signed Aaron Harrison to play for their Summer League team in Las Vegas.
Harrison went undrafted in 2015 after being part of the Kentucky team that went all the way to the Final Four before they suffered their first defeat of the season. Since then, he’s spent most of his time in the G-League, with a couple visits to the NBA with the Hornets, and most recently with the Mavericks, who called him up in late March of this season.
Bringing in someone with NBA experience to help stabilize a team in Vegas can be useful, but it’s hard to imagine this will lead to Harrison earning a spot on the team’s final roster. Not only does he play the same position as Troy Brown, but his performance in the NBA has left a lot to be desired. He only shot 26.1 percent from the field and 21.8 percent on threes during his brief NBA career and only has 11 assists in 343 minutes of playing time. He’ll need to show a lot more than that to earn serious consideration for a roster spot.
Harrison will play alongside Troy Brown, Issuf Sanon, Devin Robinson, Carrick Felix, and Chris Chiozza when the team starts play on July 6 in Las Vegas.
