On Paul Harris' quest to the NBA, there always seems to be something getting in the way. Usually it's been an injury but this time it's the dreaded "on-going family matter."
Ridiculous Upside has reported that the Maine Red Claws have dropped Harris as part of a trim down to a 10-man roster. They cited "personal reasons."
On November 21st, the Red Claws themselves noted that Harris was the only player in their then-12-man roster who wasn't in camp:
Returning Red Claws guard Paul Harris also remains on the team’s roster but has not yet arrived in Maine due to an on-going family matter.
Now, he's been excised. However, that doesn't mean he's done with the Claws. Ridiculous Upside explains:
If players are released because they are hurt or due to personal reasons, the team still retains their rights -- it's essentially a "reserve" list with a worse-sounding name.
Hopefully whatever the situation is, it gets resolved favorably and Paul can get back to playing basketball. And of course, if this doesn't work, there's always the Philippines.
