NBA Rumors: Lakers, Bulls, Kings interested in Mike Harris


In recent weeks, Mike Harris has been running wild in China – most recently pouring in 55 points. The high quality play has attracted attention from NBA front offices and a handful are interested in signing the 6’6 forward.

According to Carson Sofro of HSB Camps, the Los Angeles Lakers, Chicago Bulls, Sacramento Kings and Utah Jazz have all expressed interest in the 30-year-old.

Reports suggest the Bulls, Kings, Lakers, and even the Jazz, who cut the forward back in January, have inquired about his services, although no deal is imminent.  With many teams plagued by injury, it would appear a player with Harris’s versatility, toughness, and consistent production, would attract the attention of more than just a handful of suitors.

As mentioned above, Harris already played for the Jazz this season – averaging 4.2 points in 11 minutes a game. Harris saw the floor twenty times with the Jazz before getting released.

He previously spent time with the Washington Wizards and Houston Rockets (multiple occasions) though had not played in an NBA game prior to this season since the 2010-11 season.
