Former Sixth Man of the Year Harrell has had his sentence reduced and will wait for a contract in free agency

According to a well-known NBA reporter, the 28-year-old forward Montrezl Harrell, who won the league’s sixth man of the year in 2020, was reduced from a drug trafficking charge to a misdemeanor drug possession and escaped a five-year prison sentence. felony sentence.

Harrell averaged 11.4 points, 4.9 rebounds, 2 assists, and 0.4 in 25 games as a backup forward after being traded from the Washington Wizards to the Charlotte Hornets last season. steals and 0.5 blocks. The overall shooting percentage is 64.5%, and Harrell has also played for the Los Angeles Lakers, Los Angeles Clippers and Houston Rockets before.

However, Harrell was found to have 1.36 kilograms of marijuana in his car during a police road inspection during the offseason, and was later charged with drug trafficking, which carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison. But after mediation and investigation, Harrell was recently released from a felony conviction for drug trafficking, and the court commuted him to a misdemeanor drug possession. Harrell, however, still needs a year to stay on the safe side before he can be removed from the accused record.

The backup forward is excellent on offense, solid in the penalty area and good at pick-and-rolls, adding a lot of edge and support to the rotation. At the same time, after he became a free agent at the end of last season, he was also regarded as the best frontcourt helper in the free agency market.

It is believed that with his charges reduced to a misdemeanor, he will receive a contract with the team in free agency before the start of the new season to play in the league’s 2022-2023 season .
