New Orleans Pelicans: Pels Sign Andrew Harrison to two-way deal

New Orleans Sports NEWS
The New Orleans Pelicans made a minor adjustment to their roster Tuesday afternoon with the signing of Andrew Harrison to a two-way deal.

After losing Elfrid Payton to a hand injury earlier this season, the New Orleans Pelicans have been shorthanded at point guard over the past two weeks. On the same day that they assigned Frank Jackson to the G-League, the Pelicans announced the signing of Andrew Harrison, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Harrison, a 6-foot-6 guard from the University of Kentucky, was signed to a two-way deal that will allow him to spend 45 days with the Pelicans, and the rest with an assign G-League team.

Following a remarkable run with the Wildcats, Harrison was a second-round pick in the 2015 NBA Draft by the Phoenix Suns, but was traded to the Memphis Grizzlies that same night.

He went on to play 129 games with the Grizzlies where he averaged 7.4 points, 2.1 rebounds, and 2.9 assists while shooting 37.8 percent from the field, 30.1 percent from beyond the arc. After he was released by Memphis at the start of the season, the 24-year old guard signed a two-way deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Harrison averaged 4.3 points in 10 games.
