According to ESPN NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski, Philadelphia has signed former sixth Man of the Year Montrezal Harrell to a two-year deal. Harrell began the 2021–22 season with the Washington Wizards and was later traded to the Charlotte Hornets for the final few months of the season, averaging 11.4 points per game at Charlotte.
Harrell expressed his excitement about playing in Philadelphia on Twitter, showing that he is up to the task ahead in the City of Brotherly Love.
The signing also garnered a lot of backlash from NBA fans, who largely view the deal as a great move for the franchise.
Harrell could face up to five years in prison and a fine of $1,000 to $10,000. However, as Wojnarowski’s report noted, Harrell’s charges were eventually downgraded to a misdemeanor, and his record would be cleared if he avoided conflicts with the law for the next 12 months.
Harrell will meet with former Rockets colleague James Harden and former Clippers head coach Doc Rivers in Philadelphia.
Expectations will be high for Philadelphia as the window for the championship gets shorter and shorter each season. Philly has a group ready to compete in the challenging Eastern Conference.
