Harry Giles has found a new home.

The former first-round draft pick, who was on the Sacramento Kings from 2017 to 2020, agreed to a one-year Brooklyn Nets contract, his agent Daniel Hazan told NBA on TNT's Chris Haynes on Friday.

Giles, a highly-touted recruit who attended Duke, has battled injuries throughout his career. Picked at No. 20 overall in 2017, the Kings acquired Giles from the Trail Blazers in a draft-night trade.

He played just 104 games over three seasons with the Kings before signing with the Blazers in 2020. Giles appeared in 38 games for Portland during the 2020-21 season, then spent the 2021-22 season with the Clippers' G League team.

In 142 career games, the 6-foot-11 big man holds averages of 5.9 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game.

Now, after working out for the Golden State Warriors and other teams this summer, Giles officially is back in the NBA.
