The Scarborough Shooting Stars of the Canadian Elite Basketball League appear to be loading up with talent this year.

Just days after announcing a deal with rapper Jermaine Cole, known as J. Cole, the Shooting Stars have inked former Toronto Raptors guard Jalen Harris to a deal, the team announced Tuesday.

Harris was a second-round pick for the Raptors in 2020 and played in 13 games with the team while in Tampa. He finished the season strong, averaging 18.5 points on 51.9% shooting over his final four games. Following the season, though, he received a one-year suspension for violating the NBA's Anti-Drug policy for using a "drug of abuse." The list of prohibited drugs does not include cannabis.

He spent this past year playing overseas in Italy where he averaged 13.8 points on 38.5% shooting and 29.5% three-point shooting in 18 games for Vanoli Cremona.

Toronto still retains his rights should Harris return to the NBA. He'd be a restricted free agent meaning the Raptors could match any contract offer he receives.

The Shooting Stars have also signed former Miami Heat center Kyle Alexander for this season.
