Harper will not be re-signed after his 10-day contract with the 76ers expires, Jessica Camerato of CSN Philadelphia reports. Harper will end his stint in Philadelphia having played in three games, averaging four points and two rebounds per contest. He will likely attempt to find a role with another NBA club but may find himself in the D-League with the regular season almost over.
Harper will sign a 10-day contract with the 76ers on Friday, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports. Harper, a 2011 second-round pick of the Cavaliers, has just 19 NBA appearances to his name, with five of those coming when he received a pair of 10-day deals from the Pistons in 2015-16. The 27-year-old, who is averaging 16.2 points and 7.0 rebounds for the Los Angeles D-Fenders on the season, should help bolster the team's depth in the frontcourt with Joel Embiid (knee) ruled out for the season, but he's not expected to be a rotation player.
Harper's second 10-day contract with the Pistons expired Tuesday, and the team announced he wouldn't be signed for the remainder of the season, Keith Langlois of Pistons.com reports. Harper was brought in by the Pistons in late February to provide depth at forward while Anthony Tolliver (knee) and Stanley Johnson (shoulder) were out with injuries. The 26-year-old lost his rotation spot when those two players returned to full health, and he'll finish his stint with the Pistons with averages of 2.6 points over seven minutes in five appearances. Coach Stan Van Gundy indicated that the Pistons didn't have any immediate plans to add another player to fill the vacant roster spot.
Harper will sign a second 10-day deal with the Pistons on Friday, Keith Langlois of Pistons.com reports. Harper has appeared sparingly in three games while on his first 10-day deal, but the Pistons have apparently been impressed enough with what they've seen to keep the Richmond product around for at least another week-and-a-half. Once this second contract expires, Detroit will either have to release Harper or sign him for the remainder of the season.
Harper will sign a 10-day contract with the Pistons, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports. Harper has been playing in the D-League with the Los Angeles D-Fenders after being waived by the Nets back in late-October of 2015. The 26-year-old will look to make his first appearance for an NBA squad since the 2011-12 season where he had 14 outings with the Magic. Although, Harper should have a tough time finding rotational minutes in Detroit, even if he's ultimately given another 10-day contract or signed for the remainder of the season.
