The Pistons will sign Justin Harper to a second 10-day contract.

With Anthony Tolliver (knee) still out, this move makes sense for the Pistons. Harper has played well when called upon and had a nine-point game with three triples vs. the Raptors on Sunday, but he picked up a DNP-CD the following game. He's not on the fantasy radar.

The Pistons are leaning towards re-signing Justin Harper to another 10-day contract.

Pistons president and head coach Van Gundy has yet to make a decision on Harper, but said the team will likely re-sign the forward to keep him with the team. "I’ve been happy with Justin," Van Gundy said. "My thought right now is the probability is that we pick it up and give him another 10-day." Harper is averaging just 3.3 points per game in three games with the Pistons and can be left on waivers even if he signs another 10-day deal.

Justin Harper came off Detroit's bench on Sunday to score nine points on 3-of-5 shooting beyond the arc, adding one rebound and one turnover in 16 minutes of action.

With Stanley Johnson (shoulder) and Anthony Tolliver (knee) both on the sidelines, and Tobias Harris in foul trouble, coach Stan Van Gundy turned to Harper early tonight. He was recently signed to a 10-day contract and it's unlikely that he'll be worth owners' attention outside of the absolute deepest leagues.

The Pistons have signed F Justin Harper to a 10-day contract.

Harper will help fill the void in Anthony Tolliver's (knee) absence, but he's not going to get enough minutes in Detroit to matter in most leagues. Leave him on the wire.

The Pistons will sign forward Justin Harper to a 10-day contract.

He impressed at the summer league and was playing well in the D-League this season, but he likely won't have more than a limited role on the Pistons. For now, Harper is not on the fantasy radar.

Nets waive F Justin Harper.

He had the size and shooting stroke to be a stretch four, but a couple holes in his game kept him from being on an NBA roster. Harper will likely be back in the NBA on a 10-day deal.

Nets sign F Justin Harper.

He had some bright spots at summer league a couple years ago, but Harper is unlikely to make the Nets.

Justin Harper is finalizing a deal with Scandone Avellino of the Italian League.

Harper averaged 10.3 points, 5.1 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game with Hapoel Tel Aviv last season and will now join Scandone Avellino in the Italian League. While still just 25 years old, Harper hasn't played in the NBA since the 2011-12 season and doesn't hold any fantasy value going forward.

Magic waive PF Justin Harper.

Orlando gave up two second-round draft picks to acquire Harper in 2011, but he did nothing to distinguish himself in 14 appearances last year. He's more likely to head overseas, or to the D-League, than to join an NBA roster.

The Magic have signed rookie Justin Harper to a guaranteed two-year contract worth $1.2 million.

Harper is a sweet-shooting power forward, but lacks the size to make a real impact in Orlando (at least while Ryan Anderson and Glen Davis are standing).

Justin Harper has signed with SIG Strasbourg in France.

Harper will have an out clause in his deal that will allow him to return to the NBA after the lockout. Despite falling into the second round, Harper has a chance to contribute to the Orlando rotation immediately, but it's unlikely he'll get enough playing time to warrant significant fantasy consideration.

The Cavs traded Richmond forward Justin Harper to the Magic for two future second round draft picks in 2013 and 2014.

A shooter like him could theoretically benefit playing around Dwight Howard, but he'll need an injury or two before we project significant minutes for him at this time.

The Cavaliers drafted forward Justin Harper out of Richmond with the No. 32 pick.

He's a great shooter, but isn't all that strong, nor tough, according to Jay Bilas.

According to ESPN's Chad Ford, the Boston Celtics are planning to bring in Justin Harper, Jon Leuer, Jamie Skeen & Matt Howard for a workout on Wednesday, June 1.

All four of the power forward prospects can shoot the basketball, and as Ford indicates, the team is clearly in the market for a four that can stretch the court. It's not exactly a good sign for Glen "Big Baby" Davis, who is set to become a free agent this summer.
