Lakers sign guard Manny Harris

The Los Angeles Lakers signed L.A. D-Fenders guard Manny Harris to a 10-day contract, general manager Mitch Kupchak announced Thursday.

Harris was expected to join the team in Boston before its game against the Celtics on Friday.

Harris is a combo guard who is the D-League's reigning player of the week averaging 35 points on 57.4 percent shooting from the field in three games. He will help the Lakers' depleted backcourt, which will be even thinner after Nick Young was suspended for one game for his altercation with Phoenix's Goran Dragic in Wednesday game.
