March 13, 2016 – The Charlotte Hornets announced today the team has assigned guard Aaron Harrison to the Erie BayHawks of the NBA Development League, pursuant to the flexible assignment rule.
Harrison has appeared in 16 games for the Hornets this season, averaging 0.8 points, and 0.6 rebounds in 4.3 minutes per contest. The 21-year-old rookie went undrafted in the 2015 NBA Draft and signed with the Hornets as a free agent on July 14, 2015.
The 6-6 Harrison joined the Oklahoma City Blue for two D-League stints earlier this season. He played in a total of four games, averaging 9.3 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 18.2 minutes per contest.
The NBA D-League’s flexible assignment system enables the 11 independent NBA teams to assign players to the NBA D-League for development or rehabilitation from injury. Upon receipt from an independent NBA team, the NBA D-League will identify any NBA D-League team willing to accept the assigned player. The assigning independent NBA team will then choose the destination for assignment between those teams. If no NBA D-League team is willing to accept the assigned player, he will be assigned to one of the hybrid affiliate teams pursuant to a lottery.
