News: The Houston Chronicle reports that the Rockets reached agreement with Marqus Blakely, a 6-5 forward with the Iowa Energy of the NBA Development League, on a three-year, non-guaranteed contract Tuesday. Blakely, who averaged 15 points on 62.5 percent shooting and 6.3 rebounds in the D-League this season with Iowa and Bakersfield, will join the Rockets in Minneapolis for the season's last game. He will replace Mike Harris, whose second 10-day contract has expired, on the Rockets roster.
Analysis: Harris had minimal Fantasy value with the Rockets, so he should not be owned in any leagues now that he's been released.
News: The Rockets have signed forward Mike Harris to a 10-day contract. The 6-foot-6 Harris most recently played in China for the Shanghai Sharks, the team owned by Yao Ming. Harris began the season in Rockets' training camp before he was waived on Oct. 18. Harris has played in 30 NBA games with the Rockets and Wizards and averaged 3.0 points and 2.6 rebounds. He was named the most valuable player of the developmental league in 2009-10 after averaging 27.1 points and 10.5 rebounds and helping Rio Grande Valley win the D-League championship.
Analysis: Harris has minimal Fantasy value in the majority of leagues. Ignore him in most formats until he proves otherwise.
News: The Houston Chronicle reports that the Rockets plan on signing forward Mike Harris again because of the void left by Chase Budinger, who left Sunday's game with a mild-to-moderate ankle sprain. Harris was with Houston in the preseason, and spent time with them last season before playing in China most recently.
Analysis: Harris, the Rice product, also spent time with the Wizards in 2009-10, and he appeared in a combined 13 games. In that time, he averaged just 2.2 points per game with nearly three rebounds per contest. Harris will likely provide nothing more than depth at the forward position. Fantasy owners should not consider giving him a look.

Analysis: Harris only provides organizational depth at this point and has minimal Fantasy value. He can be left on waivers in all formats.
News: According to The Washington Post, Wizards F Mike Harris was not offered a second 10-day contract. That makes him a free agent, open to sign with any NBA team.

News: The Wizards have signed forward Mike Harris to a 10-day contract. Washington signed Harris on Wednesday after Josh Howard was lost for the season when he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in Monday's game. Harris was averaging 26.3 points and 9.8 rebounds in 28 games for Rio Grande Valley in the NBA Development League. The 6-foot-6 Harris played in two games earlier this season with the Houston Rockets, averaging 2.5 points and 1.5 rebounds.
