Basketball: FC Porto hires a player who played in the NBA

FC Porto announced on Wednesday the signing of Aaron Harrison to the basketball team, which recently lost Max Landis to injury.

The North American midfielder/winger arrives at the Dragons after a spell representing Slovenian side KK Cedevita Olpimpija.

Max Landis himself has reacted positively to the recruitment of what is seen as his immediate replacement for the Dragons.

It must be said that Harrison has experience in the NBA: in the 2015/2016 season, he represented the Charlotte Hornets, a franchise with which he played 23 matches – in 16/17 he played in five matches.

He then returned to the NBA in the 2017/18 season to play for the Dallas Mavericks. In nine games he averaged 6.7 points, 1.2 assists and 2.7 rebounds.

In North American college basketball, the 28-year-old played at the University of Kentucky, where he shared a locker room with stars like Devin Booker and Karl-Anthony Towns.

Now, after his experiences with Galatasaray and Olympiacos, Aaron Harrison is the new number 3 at Porto.
