Montrezl Harrell RumorsAll NBA Players
Jonathan Feigen: Rockets summer team: Will Cummings (Temple), Denzel Livingston (Incarnate Word), Glen Rice Jr. and Jaron Johnson (RGV), Christian Wood (UNLV), Clint Capela, Nick Johnson, Montrezl Harrell, Sam Dekker. Rockets “still working through some details” with D’Angelo Harrison, source said. Likely can add him to list soon.
Morey indicated Harrell and Dekker could see time in the NBA Development League as his other recent draft picks, save Chandler Parsons, had before getting playing time with the Rockets. Both are expected to play with the Rockets’ summer league team with Clint Capela and Nick Johnson, last season’s draft picks. “We have a very hard roster to get minutes on with the Rockets,” Morey said. “I think our normal developmental program last year had Capela helping us with minutes at the end of the year. I think if we got Sam or Montrezl helping us at the end of the year, that will be fantastic.”
Here are three options that could interest the Bulls, with scouting reports culled from conversations with scouts and team executives: Montrezl Harrell, Louisville: Some mock drafts have this 6-foot-8 uber-athlete going before No. 22. One Western Conference executive who scouted him loved his high motor, ability to run the floor, toughness and penchant for attacking the boards.
A battle of big men took place Wednesday as Arkansas’ 6-foot-11 Bobby Portis and Louisville’s 6-8 Montrezl Harrell worked out for the Bucks. At the end of the workout Harrell sprained his left ankle and went for treatment. No further update was available. Before Harrell was injured a spirited workout took place, according to Bucks director of scouting Billy McKinney. It was like a round of Mortal Kombat out there,” McKinney said. “Those guys really played hard. That’s his (Harrell’s) style of play. Portis is a very physical player although he played a lot on the perimeter this season for Arkansas.” Harrell was injured in a 3-on-3 session. “He sprained his ankle, unfortunately,” McKinney said. “He sprained is ankle toward the end of it. He has a couple of other visits he has to make. Just for precautionary measures we’re going to make sure he gets the proper treatment.”
