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.”
Gery Woelfel: Montrezl Harrell will work out for Bucks Wednesday.. Harrell, a projected late 1st-round pick, is 6-7 but has freakish 7-4 1/4 wingspan.
The Jazz will hold yet another pre-draft workout Sunday morning at their practice facility. The group will include: Duke guard Quinn Cook, Louisville forward Montrezl Harrell, Villanova guard Darrun Hillard, Nebraska forward Terran Petteway, Baylor guard Kenny Chery and Minnesota forward Maurice Walker.
NBA Draft season is officially underway for the Trail Blazers as the team held its first predraft workouts Wednesday with six players at the team’s practice facility.

Louisville junior forward Montrezl Harrell and sophomore guard Terry Rozier have each decided to leave school early and declare for the NBA draft, Cards coach Rick Pitino said Monday. “They’re both leaving, yes, 100 percent,” Pitino told reporters. “And it’s the right thing to do for both of them. You all may have some doubts about Terry, but I don’t.”
Kevin Pelton: Pitino says he tells NBA personnel that Terry Rozier and Montrezl Harrell don’t take a possession off in practice. Rozier credits Pitino.
Kevin Pelton: Rick Pitino notes Terry Rozier and Montrezl Harrell are headed to “greener pastures” (I.e. NBA).
When Harrell hears others talk about his potential NBA draft status, his friends remind him that he could really be more consistent with his jumper, or they’ll point out plays he didn’t make. “They always bring me back to reality,” Harrell said. “And the best thing about them is they never really harp on what good I’ve done. They harp more on the bad things I’ve done in a game.”
The deadline for underclassmen to declare for the NBA Draft is 11 days away, and Louisville fans are waiting on pins and needles for sophomore forward Montrezl Harrell’s final decision. Don’t hold your breath. Sources indicate that Harrell won’t have a decision until next week, and he’s likely to leave. That would leave Louisville with a few options to fill Harrell’s leftover scholarship, and coach Rick Pitino’s recent recruiting activities imply the Cardinals probably have their eye on a few replacement options. Pitino also mentioned the possibility of a fifth-year transfer in his end-of-season press conference earlier this week.
