Jalen Harris has signed a one-year contract to join Vanoli Cremona, the team announced Saturday.
Harris, 22, was the 59th pick of the 2020 NBA draft. In his rookie pro season, he logged 13 NBA appearances with the Toronto Raptors averaging 7.4 points, 1.4 rebounds, and 1.3 assists per match. He added 17.6 points per G League contest powering the Raptors 905.
He was dismissed and disqualified from the NBA for violating terms of the anti-drug program, the league announced in July. He can apply for reinstatement in one year.
The young shooting guard enters a solid list of newcomers as Cremona previously picked up Haywood Highsmith, Ismael Sanogo, Jamuni McNeace, Matteo Spagnolo, Destiny Agbamu, and Andrea Pecchia ahead of the 2021-22 LBA season.
