Strasbourg releases Terrel Harris
December 3rd, 2009
As mentioned in the 1997 NBA Draft Where Are They Now Round-up Recap Thing, IG Strasbourg are a French team that’s not doing very well. They’re currently joint-15th in the 16-team French ProA league with a 2-7 record and a three-game losing streak. They’re currently in the EuroChallenge (the third-tier continent-wide club tournament), and they lead this group, but that won’t count for a whole lot unless they reverse their French league fortunes. So they’ve made some changes, signed Wen Mukubu (to replace the injured Alain Digbeu), and waived Terrel Harris.
Harris, pictured here receiving mid-game attention from an unnamed Texas Longhorn with different-sized ears, was signed in the summer to try and provide some of that scoring help. He averaged 13.9 ppg for the Oklahoma State Cowboys last season, focusing on scoring and shooting impromptu threes, and rebounding a little bit. He’s only been doing half to that for Strasbourg this season, though, averaging only 6.8 points, 1.9 rebounds and 2.6 fouls per game. He shot the three well, scoring over 48% from outside, but he offered little else outside of that, and the team are now looking elswhere.
EDIT: Strasbourg have also signed former NBA guard Anthony Roberson, who replaces Harris. Mukubu replaces Digbeu.
I am continuously intrigued by the esoterica and minutiae of all the aspects of building a basketball team. I want to understand how to build the best basketball teams possible. No, I don’t know why, either.
