I have been a bit dissapointed watching both the preseason games at how little he is getting on the court...seems like he is the third string on the preseason roster, which is a bit suprising after his summer league performance and the $100k garunteed they gave him.

Last night he was forced to D up with Andre Miller for part of the fourth, and he had no chance staying in from of him. It's also tough because they are having him spot up a lot on the perimiter on offense and a lot of the people he is playing with are black holes on offense trying to make the team, which won't make Harris shine.

Hopefully he gets some more time on the court over the next couple games, but I'll be curious to see how things shake out.

No real ground breaking questions, and she can't even pronounce Gonzaga, but it was fun to hear Elias talk.

Gonzaga rookies in the NBA: Kelly Olynyk and Elias Harris update

The NBA season is just over a week away with tip off set for October 29th. Gonzaga has two rookies currently in the NBA in Kelly Olynyk and Elias Harris, and both have gotten off to decent starts so far.

Both Olynyk and Harris are trying to establish themselves on the Celtics and Lakers. Harris is fighting for one of the last spots on the Lakers roster, while Olynyk is working at becoming a starter for the new look Celtics.

Harris who went undrafted in the draft, thus far has seen limited minutes in the preseason. He is averaging 12.4 minutes per game in the five games he has played. The Lakers need to cut their roster to 15 players by the start of the season and Harris is right on the edge. After Darius Johnson-Odom was let go by the Lakers, three players Elias Harris, Ryan Kelly, and Marcus Landry are the candidates for the final roster position.

Luckily for Harris, he has a partial guaranteed contract ($100,000) and has played
well in the short time he has seen. He is only averaging 3 points per game but has shown some of his versatility. Harris is in the process of making the transition to the small forward position from the power forward spot he played in college.

More about Elias at the link.

I put the Kelly part in the Kelly thread.

I believe the Lakers are currently at 16, so there is only one more cut to come, and I'm hopefull it's leaning towards Landry. They are pretty deep at the gaurd positions and it seems like xavier henry earned himself some pt so far. They are a little more thin up front (Gasol, Kaman, Hill, Sacre, and now Shawn Williams who is a D'Antoni 4). However, Gasol, Kaman, and Hill all dealt with injury issues the past couple seasons...and Harris can play a little 3/4 combo action.

Lakers Waive Marcus Landry

Looks like EH is on the 15 man roster. I expect he will go up and down to the D-league, much as Sacre did last year. Keep him playing and called up to fill specific needs due to match ups and/or injuries.

Good Luck Elias!

Lakers' 2013-14 Player Previews:

http://www.nba.com/lakers/features/1314_season_preview


Elias Harris

2012-13: Grabbed 7.4 rebounds per game as a senior at Gonzaga.

Preseason: In a limited sample size (70 total minutes), Harris shot 50.0 percent (7 of 14) in seven preseason appreances, one of three players to shoot 50 percent or better (Chris Kaman, Jordan Farmar).

Elias Harris averaged just 11 minutes per game during the preseason, but showed signs of why the Lakers signed him as an undrafted free agent. At 6-8 and 240 pounds, Harris has excellent NBA size, and can play multiple positions. The German native will likely have an opportunity to continue to hone his game with the Lakers' D-League affiliate, the D-Fenders, with several veteran players ahead of him on the senior squad's depth chart.
