Guy's a Kenneth Faried. Not going to overpay for that. No thank you.

Harrell is a poor 3-pt and FT shooter, and a mediocre defender. He doesn't fit the Raptor mold at all.


Sounds a lot like Giannis.


He was wearing a leafs AM jersey


Giannis is a stud defensively, and shoots over 70% from the free-throw line for his career. The 3-pt shooting is a work in progress, but this year he shot 30% on high volume - it's getting better.

Not to mention he's a freak athlete and MVP-calibre player entering his prime.
Nick Nurse recounting his first meeting with Kawhi:
“We could have gone forever. (Raptors management) kept knocking on the door and I was like, ‘A couple more minutes.’ Because we were really into it."

last 2yrs:

Harrell (26): 26.9mpg, 17.5pts (62.2ts%), 6.8rb (2.4orb), 2.1st+bk, 23.3per, .192ws48, 3.1bpm, +2.2rpm
Ibaka (30): 27.1mpg, 15.2pts (58.3ts%), 8.2rb (2.1orb), 1.6st+bk, 18.1per, .137ws48, 0.2bpm, -0.4rpm

this is not a close comparison, guys. Harrell is on an entirely different level than Ibaka.

Defence matters.

I still think ibaka was the real 6th man of the year.

Seriously, the award has turned into “the best off the bench chucker and Sometimes Lou Williams” award.


ibaka is bad defensively. trez is good.

Bro what?

I think it would be a great move to bring in Harrell. Gasol would have to go, Serge would have to take a paycut, FVV may have to take a paycut to make all of the salaries work. Harrell will want a lot of money. Siakim's contract will start this year, plus Lowry's 30 mil.

Hows his pick and roll defense and rebounding? Is he relatively smart overall in terms of bball iQ?

On another note, the clippers have no picks no cap space and no other way to improve but all the money in the world, and people think they are passing up the bird rights on Harrell? :crazy:

Raps should not throw big dollars for Harrell. An undersized big man (he is only 6 foot 7 without shoes), and who is not a very good defender.

They will have the full mid level (about $9M, could be more) if they let Harrell walk. And there are a lot of centers available in free agency.

I think a guy like Tristan Thompson would be much better for them than Harrell. And yes, they lose Harrell's trade value, but they might get more out of the mid-level contract, especially if they overpay to keep Harrell who became a liability in the playoffs.

Every year Rich Paul floats a rumour that we're interested in one of his clients. We're not making this run.

Then they try and sign and trade Harrell. But they aren't giving up his rights. That would shock me. Since he's worth more than the MLE likely.
