Utah Jazz waive forward Mike Harris

We will never forget this game - Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

The Utah Jazz wave forward Mike Harris. Yep. That's really all the news today.

Today the Utah Jazz announced that they waived non-guaranteed contract holder, and energy player off the bench, Mike Harris. I think it's fair to say that we all appreciated his hustle, and he was invaluable early on in the season when 5 rotation players were injured. I guess the Jazz did not think they needed him anymore and the roster has now been cut down from 15 to 14 players.

Here are the tweets:

Yup. Good guy, hard worker, just hard to stick in the NBA. The 30 year old forward has played all over, from Kyiv in the Ukraine, Al Qadsia in Kuwait, four times in China, twice in Puerto Rico, and done the NBA D-League dance four times as well. He had previous played for the Houston Rockets in the NBA.

With the Jazz this season he averaged 11.3 mpg (career NBA best), 4.2 ppg (career NBA best), 0.9 rpg, 0.3 apg (career NBA best), 0.8 spg (career NBA best), and 0.4 bpg (career NBA best). In his first five games this season he played 21:52, 12:28, 19:58, 15:34, and 18:17 minutes. He had a very good game against the Oklahoma City Thunder in the first game of the regular season -- finishing with 13 points, 4 rebounds, 2 steals, and fouled out trying to guard Kevin Durant.

That's how I want to remember him, working hard despite limitations. The 6'6 forward was written about here before in a humorous way, but today let's just say thank you to this guy.

Mike Harris will return home, and I am sure be kept up nights with his newborn.
