Beat Reporter Predicts How Lakers Will Treat Team Option On Shaquille Harrison

Lakers Will Treat Team Option On Shaquille Harrison

The combo guard joined the Los Angeles Lakers on the final day of the regular season.

Retaining little-used Los Angeles Lakers combo guard Shaquille Harrison isn’t high on the team’s priority list this offseason.

The 6’4″ journeyman signed a rest-of-season (including playoffs) deal with LA on the final day of the 2022-23 regular season but saw minimal action during the playoffs.

According to The Athletic’s Jovan Buha, Los Angeles team president Rob Pelinka and his front office plan to fire Harrison, whose contract with the club contains a $2.4 million non-guaranteed salary for the 2023-24 NBA season.

During the playoffs, he averaged 1.3 points on 57.1% field goal shooting and 1.1 assists in limited minutes.

Harrison has played for a number of teams after being drafted out of the University of Tulsa in 2016. He spent his first two pro seasons with the Northern Arizona Suns, then the Phoenix Suns’ G League club (they were later acquired by the Detroit Pistons and rebranded the Motor City Cruise).

Since then, he’s played for the Suns, as well as the Chicago Bulls, Utah Jazz, Denver Nuggets, Brooklyn Nets, and Portland Trail Blazers. He’s also played for the Philadelphia 76ers’ affiliate team, the Delaware Blue Coats, and Los Angeles’ own affiliate in El Segundo, the South Bay Lakers.
