But it would seem in order to find a place in the NBA, Harangody is going to have to develop a more consistent mid-range game or 3-point shot and that’s still not there. He’s 5-for-15 from behind the arc in his first five games with the Mad Ants. And with his lack of size, he has trouble making defensive stops in the lane. “I’m working on my outside shot, but that’s really no different than the work I do on the rest of my game,” Harangody said. “I think coaches always know what they’re gonna get from my game. I have to be more consistent at times. What I do out there is what they see — hustle, energy, getting on the glass. Just getting there and mixing it up for the team, doing the dirty work.” It’s consistent. It’s tough. It can be devastatingly effective in the D-League. But will it be enough to ever carve out a place in the NBA? NBA.com

To many around the league, the Harangody qualifying offer was almost outlandish. It was worth $1.1 million. One agent said Harangody had two options at that point: 1. Play overseas; 2. Sign a make-good contract for the NBA minimum and try to make someone’s team in training camp. When the Cavs’ qualifying offer rolled off the fax machine in agent Mark Bartelstein’s office, they almost immediately accepted it. It might have been a record. One agent called it a “$1 million gift.” News-Herald

NBA teams have until June 30 to tender qualifying offers to potential restricted free agents. The Cavs have three such players in center Semih Erden and forwards Alonzo Gee and Luke Harangody. They'll definitely give Gee a qualifying offer. He said he wants to return to the Cavs. Erden didn't sparkle last season and at times, he sat on the bench for long periods. He's still a 7-footer with skills. News-Herald
