Throughout Montrezl Harrell’s career at Louisville I’d say most fans expected him to have a long and successful career in the NBA. After surprisingly falling to the second round of the 2015 draft, Trez didn’t see much action as a rookie and spent the majority of the year in the D-League.
In year two Harrell is having a breakout season for the Houston Rockets. Trez’s role and minutes have increased throughout the season and he’s been on an absolute tear over the couple weeks.
Harrell is averaging 15.7 points and shooting 67% from the field in his last seven games. He had a career high 29 points against the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday.
