And another reason RPM sucks and shouldn't be used alone. It doesn't show at all ow he impacts his team's spacing negatively. And Harrell is in no way better defensively as he is more limited to who he can play against.
One thing to note is that while Harrell goes put up some okay defensive numbers, he does have trouble with traditional bigs who had high field goal %s when matched up with him. He is a guy who is a decent weak-side shotblocker.
My dream pick-up is Richaun Holmes. I would a second round pick and prospect for him. To me, he is grossly underpaid for what he can do as a C ($5m in 2020-21). Good defense, hustle and makes shots from a number of places. I'd rate him higher than Harrell because he does what Harrell can do and more.
Curious what Nerlens Noel would cost. He had 1.5 blocks and 6.9% block percentage, and will be a lot cheaper than Harrell.
