Ex-Michigan basketball star Manny Harris reportedly signs with team in Ukraine
ANN ARBOR -- Manny Harris has found a home again.
But he'll have to go overseas to get there.
According to Sportando.net, a site that covers international basketball, the former Michigan basketball star has signed a contract with Azovmash Mariupol -- a team located in Ukraine.
BC Azovmash is known as one of the higher-rated clubs in Ukraine, as it currently competes predominately in the Ukrainian SuperLeague. Some of the club's notable former players include ex-UCLA guard Tyus Edney and ex-Duke guard William Avery.
Harris played two seasons with the Cleveland Cavaliers before being officially released in July.
He appeared in 80 games with Cleveland over a two-year span. Last season, he averaged 6.7 points and 2.7 in 26 appearances.
The Detroit native opted to leave Michigan after his junior season (2009-10). During his three-year career, Harris averaged 17 points, 5.7 rebounds and 3.7 assists. He finished his career at No. 10 on the school's all-time scoring list with 1,668 points.
