This move will give the Nuggets more veteran depth at point guard for the remainder of the regular season and into the playoffs.
Harrison played part of this season with the Utah Jazz, and started 21 games for the Chicago Bulls across the previous two years.
According to ESPN, Harrison’s biggest skill has been his ability to force turnovers. Last season, Harrison recorded a steal percentage and block percentage that both ranked in the 99th percentile among wings.
The Nuggets will waive two-way forward Greg Whittington to make room for Harrison.
According to Denver Post reporter Mike Singer, the Nuggets may not be done adding depth in the backcourt.
