Jalen Harris Disqualified from NBA for Violating Anti-Drug Program

Toronto Raptors guard Jalen Harris has been “dismissed and disqualified from the NBA for violating terms of anti-drug program,” per Shams Charania and The Athletic and Stadium.

Harris, who was the 59th pick in the 2020 NBA Draft out of Nevada, averaged 7.4 points per game on .500 percent shooting from the field and .472 percent from 3-point range in 13 games last season.

Per Charania, the 22-year-old Harris will be able to apply for reinstatement in one year.

O.J. Mayo (2016), who currently plays for the Liaoning Flying Leopards, and Tyreke Evans (2019) were the last two players who the NBA suspended for violating the anti-drug policy. Though neither player has been reinstated as of today, Evans is eligible to reapply following the 2020-21 season.
