Harris double-doubles in D-league debut

— — Niagara Falls native Paul Harris scored 17 points and grabbed 10 rebounds Monday as the Maine Red Claws defeated teh springfield Armor 102-88 in an NBA Developmental League exhibition game.

Harris played a team-high 27 minutes in the game. It was his most extensive action since he left Syracuse University two years ago.

“I’m just trying to get my wind back and the feel for the game,” Harris said in a text message.

The Red Claws made Harris their first draft pick (No. 7 overall) in team history in 2009, but the 6-foot-5 swingman did not play at all last year due to an ankle injury sustained while he was preparing to participate in the Utah Jazz’ training camp.

Harris played with the Utah Jazz summer league team in 2010, but did was not invited to an NBA training camp. The Red Claws retained his rights and have reserved a spot on their 10-man roster for him.

“We expect big things from him this season,” coach Austin Ainge told the York Journal Tribune. “Hopefully he’s one of those players that gets called up to the NBA this season.”

The Red Claws open the regular season Friday. They’re scheduled to play in Erie, Pa. on Dec. 10 and 11.
