Last year with Galatasaray, the former Wildcat averaged 13.1 points, 3.1 rebounds, 3.1 assists, and 1.1 steals per contest. He also shot 44.2% from three and 80.5% from the free-throw line.
In three years in the NBA, Harrison has played for both Charlotte and Dallas, but the 6-foot-6 guard never found his groove at either location. Playing just 35 games in three seasons, the former Wildcat has averaged 2.3 points, 1.2 rebounds, and 0.5 assists to go with an abysmal 26% shooting overall and 22% from three.
Playing for five different G-League teams in three years, Harrison has averaged 18.2 points, 4.4 rebounds, and 2.1 assists on 41.4% shooting overall and 36.6% from three.
