Yeah Josh Harrellson! Wait wait who?
Nice pickup! Solid banger from a good program! He'll provide the height and weight down low to take up space down in the paint! He's a hardworking blue-collar guys! I like the pickup!
I actually saw a few UK games so i've seen him play, he isn't going to turn into a Tyson Chandler type C at max he'll be like the Hornets Aaron Grey
looks like a big solid white guy (pause)
I don't know how many of you saw mighty whitey in the NCAA tournament,
but he was one of the main reasons Kentucky made it to the Final Four.
He came out of nowhere to average something like 17 points, 8.8 bounds
a game, and was the difference maker. Seems to be another Moscow in
the making, if not better, if his improvement at end of season is any indication
of things to come.
Bud Harrelson is a good pickup by the Knicks, at least they made
an attempt at a big man.
i like this guy, he plays like he cares. and his nickname is "Jorts"..
hahahahaha. Oh manJosh Harrellson
PF 6-10 275 Kentucky
Prospect Rank: 79 Traded to Knicks. Josh Harrellson is not an NBA player. Congrats to him for getting drafted, but he?s got no business being taken. He?s tall and he works hard. That?s it.
Jeremy Tyler a prospect with much more upside was also bought for cash considerations. I'm not even a Tyler fan but if we're buying a 2nd round big it should have been him. Also wish we would have bought a 2nd and drafted Darius Morris who slipped pretty far.
Harellson is a decent big. He's a hard worker (isn't that why Faried was so popular?) and ran a very similar offense in Kentucky. If he can be consistent with a midrange jumper, he'll be useful in the pick-and-pop while clearing the lane fore Amare and Melo.
On defense, he likes to bang and be physical, which is what we want Amare to NOT do with other centers. Harellson can push other 5's around and mess with their positioning, and will have 6 fouls to use. He's smart enough to use them wisely, too.
Can't ask for much more from a #45 pick.
