Kidding, of course.
These rankings are based on what the ESPN Forecast panel predicts what a player’s impact and level of play will be in the upcoming season. Harrellson joins teammates Peyton Siva and Luigi Datome — post located here.
Here’s the thing about Harrellson — I don’t really know what the heck he is. He really only played one year at Kentucky, he’s had a couple of stints with the Knicks or Heat in the NBA, but overall he’s kind of just a big body who can shoot a little.
He hasn’t had the chance to really show himself in the pros, and similar to Peyton Siva, it’s probably a good sign for the Pistons’ success if he’s not a key guy. He’s insurance depth; he’s this year’s Slava Kravtsov.
Instead of tweeting #LetSlavaDunk you can tweet #LetJortsShoot — it’ll be great.
Honestly, best case is that Harrellson can be a situational Channing Frye, but he’s likely just depth behind a crowded front court.
