Harrison signing second 10-day deal with Mavs

Aaron Harrison is signing a second 10-day contract with the Dallas Mavericks.

The Dallas Mavericks are signing Aaron Harrison to a second 10-day contract, according to a report.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported the news.

The 23-year-old Harrison, who went undrafted out of the University of Kentucky in 2015, had played in 26 games over two seasons with the Charlotte Hornets before signing the first 10-day deal with Dallas earlier this month.

“I definitely want to impact the game so we can win,” Harrison told Dennis Varney of the Lexington Herald-Leader. “I think that’s the biggest thing, people in the league right now are looking for guys that will help the team win. And I think I can do that.”

Harrison and the rest of the Mavericks (23-53) will be in Cleveland to face the Cavaliers (46-30) on Sunday night.

In a 103-97 victory at Sacramento on Tuesday, Harrison started and scored 10 points, with five rebounds, a steal and a blocked shot, shooting 3-of-8 in 25 minutes.

Dallas coach Rick Carlisle has liked what he’s seen of Harrison.

“He’s a 2-guard that can shoot,” he told Eddie Sefko of The Dallas Morning News last week. “I talked to Jeff Van Gundy, who coached him on the USA team (last summer). Jeff had positive things to say about him. … Aaron’s got the shot. Hopefully, he makes the most of it.”
