Utah Jazz sign guard Shaquille Harrison

The Utah Jazz have signed guard Shaquille Harrison.

It’s reportedly a deal for the league minimum.

Listed at 6-foot-4, 190 lbs., this will be Harrison’s fourth NBA season.

Harrison played for the Chicago Bulls in 2019-20. In 43 games (10 starts), he averaged 4.9 points on 46.7 percent from the field, 2.0 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 11.3 minutes per game.

Per KSL.com, “He’s been an energy player on bad teams thus far, but his defensive metrics show he may have some true value. Last season, he was 15th in the NBA in Defensive Real Plus-Minus (for reference, Utah’s Rudy Gobert was first). Harrison’s 4.9 deflections per 36 minutes and 2.3 loose balls recovered per 36 minutes were among the league leaders according to NBA.com’s hustle stats. There are worse options for an end-of-the-bench player.”

Harrison has also played for the Suns, as well as in the G League for the Northern Arizona Suns.
