    At best he's another Mozgov. The more likely scenario is that he's waived by the time basketball actually starts.

    Ok i have to change my opinion on this guy from Dubious to honestly intrigued based on this stuff I found on other boards.



    He's spent the last year practicing against number 3 draft pick Enez Kanter which means he knows how to play against good/better competition.

    He was willing to put in the work to get better and earn a playing spot

    ESPN and Thad Matta think he was a underrated player

    Then add that he was the highest rated Center according to Position Adjusted Win Score (this is based on draftee's who played for American college only). [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    well its something to think about. The Knicks may of got themselves a decent center. who even if he doesn't perform well enough to break the roster. he will definitely be an asset to that D league team.

    A great pick-up for what there was in the draft....we need muscle and thats what he brings.....he is 6-10 so if Dantonio does not blow it we have a back-up center....

    Now the key is to Trade Turiaf for a solid SG and get us a starting center with the MLE.

    If this guy is an NBA center than I'm an olympic sprinter. The dude is barely 6"9' without shoes. Banging around the paint in college is quite different than clogging the lanes in the NBA.

    Last I checked, FLA didn't have a center like Dwight Howard.

    This was pretty much a waste of Dolan's money.

    HE IS NOT MOZGOV. The MOZ was a legit 7-foot. Heck, we should have just invited Brian Zoubek to camp. He's taller, did exactly what this guy did last year (getting hot his SR year and helping his team make a run) but he actually won a title.

    NYK should have taken a chance on a potential guy like Shelby or Tyler.

    IT WAS OBVIOUS we just selected 2 bodies we hope can make the team, crack the rotation and play a few minutes. Neither pick we made will be on this team in 2-3 years though.

    THIS "big" wasn't getting drafted. Look at the 2nd round... TEAMS TAKE CHANCES, b/c... as it was said... this was a late pick. If you miss... who cares. Why bother taking a guy who wont even break camp with your team? Especially when you've tradd away your first rounder the next year?

    Dude, just b/c both are white doesn't mean they are the same player.

    Gray played for PIT in the BIG EAST and played all 4 years. Gray is also a legit 7-feet, while Harresllson is only 6"10'. Grays scored around 1100 points in college compared to JH's 450.

    The SEC was AWFUL in basketball this year. VERY BAD. So, let's not get crazy about the "good" year JH had. Gray's SR year was better, and that was in the much deeper/tougher/talented BIG EAST.

    Gray averaged about 14 & 10 his JR and SR year. In JH's JR year he posted 1.3 & 1.2. In his SR campaign, he went off for 7.6 & 9.

    Aside from that, sure... they both work hard.

    Mafra you make some good points. Harrelson is not Gray, but let's see what he can do. Effort can get you pretty far in the NBA if you have the physical tools and this kid does. I remember being impressed w him while watching Kentucky in the tourney. Time will tell.

    I guess we differ....
    I think the Knicks need a 6-10 guy who will play hard, hustle and do whatever he can to play in the NBA....

    I am sick of watching guys like Wilson Chandler ( past I know ) play with half a heart sometimes...

    Guys like Williams and Walker who have such potential but samething they play some games not giving a 100%.

    We need a big and this is the best we can get....a guy that will give 100% a night and cherish his opportunity to play in the NBA....

    How can U knock a guy like that......

    He'll probably be a cross between Luke Walton and Jeff Foster. He will be good on the pick-&-roll, and he did battle against legit NBA prospects in college during his 4 years at KU (Cousins, Kanter and all).

    I guess Calipari and work outs pushed this kid on to our radar. I also believe NYK will target Sessions, Telflair or Ridnour along with signing a starting C. So, Harrellson or Jordan will probably compete for 1 spot.

    I'm not rooting against the kid... just felt like when you have a 2nd round pick... especially with no first round the next year... take a gamble... like SA... draft one of these young foreign players and stash them overseas. We could have easily taken Harrellson after the draft.

    I agree let's wait and see. Too bad there's no summer league and we may have to wait for the preseason

    I'd be more worried about what Moa plans to do with the 17th pick.

    On a side note...
    Ron you got 1700posts under a year....wtf that's a record

    Lol.. My first 4 mo. I posted at a torrid pace, but not crap like you see w alot of new posters. I post quality.

    And you called me casual fan.. My average is a little under 5 a day. Some days depending on what topics are cookin' I post alot.. Can't be helped I guess.

    I too liked it when Harrelson used the ball as a projectile Some good tactics there.. I like guys who won't back down.
