2019 Fantasy Outlook
A candidate for Most Improved Player and Sixth Man of the Year, Harrell had a breakout campaign in 2018-19 -- his second year with the Clippers. With DeAndre Jordan moving on to Dallas, there were more minutes available at center for Harrell. In his 26.3 minutes per game, Harrell averaged 16.6 points on 61.5 percent shooting, 6.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.3 blocks. He racked up three 30-point games, 17 performances with double-digit boards and 14 games with at least three swats. Heading into the 2019-20 season, Harrell's role should be safe, and it appears he'll split time with Ivica Zubac at center. While that limits Harrell's upside, he'll be entering his age 26 season, so improvement is certainly on the table. And if Zubac suffers an injury, Harrell would presumably be in line for 30-plus minutes. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio

Montrezl Dashay Harrell was born in Tarboro, North Carolina, to Samuel and Selena Harrell in 1994. He has two younger brothers -- Cadarius and Quatauis. He attended North Edgecombe High School in Tarboro before finishing his prep career at Hargrave Military Academy in Chatham, Virginia. In his lone season at Hargrave, Harrell led the team to a 38-1 record while averaging 25.2 points and 13.6 rebounds per game. In 2012, he participated in the Jordan Classic Regional and garnered MVP honors after posting 22 points, 12 rebounds and seven blocks. Harrell averaged 10.6 points and 3.7 rebounds as part of the 2013 U.S. team that took home gold at the FIBA World Under-19 Championship in the Czech Republic. In 2018, Harrell founded the Montrezl Harrell Youth Foundation with a mission to "provide at-risk youth with resource-driven programming in the fields of education, mentorship and overall wellness."

College/International Summary

Despite starting just three games and playing limited minutes as a freshman, Harrell came up with some huge performances for Louisville as they won the 2013 National Championship. The 6-foot-8 forward scored a career-high 20 points in the Big East Tournament final against Syracuse. In the Big Dance, Harrell grabbed seven rebounds against Oregon and was 4-for-4 from the field on his way to eight points in the Final Four win over Wichita State. Harrell moved into the starting lineup as a sophomore and averaged 14.0 points, 8.4 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game. Louisville dominated its new conference, the American Athletic, and Harrell had 22 points and 11 rebounds in the AAC Tournament Final win over UConn. He averaged 12.3 points and 10.7 rebounds in the NCAA Tournament, but the Cardinals were defeated by Kentucky in the Sweet 16. Harrell improved as a junior and provided 15.7 points and 9.2 rebounds per game. He won the Karl Malone Award as the nation's top power forward. Louisville advanced to the Elite Eight. Harrell had 24 points on 9-for-12 shooting from the field in the win over NC State. He applied for the 2015 NBA Draft after his junior season and was selected with the 32nd overall pick by the Houston Rockets.

Scores team-high 20 points in loss
CLos Angeles Clippers
September 15, 2020
Harrell had 20 points (7-10 FG, 6-9 FT) and three rebounds in 26 minutes during Tuesday's 104-89 loss to the Nuggets.
ANALYSIS
Harrell finally found some rhythm on the offensive end, leading his team with 20 points on what was a disappointing night for the franchise. After arriving late to the bubble, Harrell has struggled to get anything going and has certainly been exposed on the defensive end of the court over the course of the playoffs. His reputation as a one-way player could cost him when it comes to signing his next contract, as could his inability to score outside of about four feet from the basket.

Past Season Summaries
2018

In his second season with the Clippers, Harrell demonstrated significant improvement, with increases in points (16.5), rebounds (6.5), and assists (2.0) per game. One of his best performances of the season came early, on Oct. 26, when he posted 30 points -- including hitting 14-of-15 free throws -- to go with six rebounds, two steals, and two blocks. The big man would then go on a run of 14 contests with at least 10 points and six boards, with six double-doubles over that span. Harrell enjoyed another solid stretch around the holiday season, averaging 18.2 points, 7.9 rebounds, 1.1 steals, 1.3 blocks, and a 62.7 field-goal percentage across 12 appearances between Dec. 22 and Jan. 14. During that same span, Harrell had a pair of 30-plus-point performances, highlighted by a season-high 32 points against the Mavericks on Feb. 25. Harrell continued to play well in a Round 1 playoff series against the Warriors, averaging 18.3 points per game on 73.1 percent shooting across six games. His best effort of the series came in Game 2, when he posted 25 points -- including a perfect 9-for-9 from the line -- to go along with 10 rebounds in a 135-131 road victory. Harrell finished the season ranked 17th in the league in blocked shots per game (1.3), 18th in PER (23.4), ninth in true shooting (63.6%), and fifth in field goal percentage (61.5%). He finished third in the voting for the Sixth Man of the Year award and seventh in the voting for the Most Improved Player award.

2017

In Harrell's first season with the Clippers, he saw a huge increase in games played, up to 76 games from his previous 58. Most of his numbers across the board improved, including 309 more points and 87 more rebounds. His offensive efficiency continued to stay at a high mark; Harrell shot 63.5 percent from the floor, trailing only starting center DeAndre Jordan among players who saw over 15 minutes per game on the team. However, Harrell outperformed Jordan in points, blocks and steals per 36 minutes. Harrell also was 11th in the league in offensive rating, eighth in true shooting percentage and third in effective field-goal percentage. His hustle plays, epitomized through actions such as running the floor, rebounding and scoring around the rim (115 dunks), made him an invaluable member of the second unit. Harrell was able to achieve this despite being undersized for his position at 6-foot-7. To cap it off, Harrell posted a career-high Player Efficiency Rating of 24.7, far surpassing the league average of 15 and placing him in competition with All-Stars like Russell Westbrook, Karl-Anthony Towns and Chris Paul. Harrell had an impressive March in which he scored 20 or more points on three occasions. This stretch was highlighted by his season-best game of 24 points, seven rebounds, three assists, two blocks and a steal against the Trail Blazers in only 20 minutes of action.

2016

Harrell's role grew larger in his second season with Houston. He played in 58 games and averaged 18.3 minutes per contest, nearly doubling his average playing time over his rookie campaign. Consequently, Harrell posted across-the-board improvements in points (9.1), rebounds (3.8) and assists (1.1) per game. After shooting 64.4 percent from the field as a rookie, Harrell raised that number to a stellar 65.2 percent in his sophomore campaign. He also shot 62.8 percent from the charity stripe, nearly 10 points higher than in his previous season. On Dec. 30, he scored a career-high 29 points in a win over the Clippers. He nearly matched that mark nine days later, scoring 28 points in a victory over Toronto. He posted the first double-double of his career against Golden State on Dec. 1, totaling 13 points and 10 rebounds. Harrell saw limited action in the postseason, playing in five games as Houston advanced to the Western Conference Semifinals. In the playoffs, he racked up five points and six rebounds in a combined 21 minutes of action.

2015

Montrezl Harrell was selected by the Houston Rockets in the second round (32nd overall pick) during the 2015 NBA Draft. He played 39 games with the Rockets in his rookie season, averaging 9.7 minutes per contest. In his NBA debut, Harrell scored eight points and made all four of his field-goal attempts against Denver on Oct. 28. On the season, the 6-foot-8 forward posted per-game averages of 3.6 points and 1.7 rebounds. He scored a season-high 17 points against Golden State on Oct. 30, adding three boards. On Jan. 17, he scored 10 points and grabbed a season-best eight rebounds in a win over the Lakers. Harrell spent parts of the season in the D-League with Rio Grande Valley. In 12 games with the Vipers, he posted per-game averages of 24.3 points, 9.3 rebounds and 2.4 blocks. Harrell also appeared in two postseason contests with the Rockets during the first round of the playoffs against Golden State. In those games, he totaled three points and two rebounds across 12 minutes.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
2016
2015
Despite the change of scenery, Harrell's role with the Clippers didn't change much from his final season in Houston. He spent the bulk of the year backing up DeAndre Jordan at center, while also occasionally getting minutes as a reserve power forward. Harrell finished the season averaging career highs of 11.0 points and 4.0 rebounds, while shooting 63.4 percent from the field. The 6-foot-8 big man has a chance to up that workload once again looking forward to the upcoming campaign. Jordan opted to leave Los Angeles during free agency and takes with it his stellar averages of 12.0 points and 15.2 rebounds across 31.5 minutes. That's a lot of production to make up for and it seems unlikely that offseason addition Marcin Gortat will be the only one to do so. As a result, look for Harrell to absorb some of the minutes and he could even push Gortat for more time considering the veteran big man is coming off one of his worst seasons statistically in recent memory. Of course, Boban Marjanovic is also an option at center, but his size only allows him to stay on the court for short stretches. All that said, look for Harrell's role to grow in his fourth NBA season and he could become a deep league option for Fantasy purposes if Gortat struggles and the Clippers turn to Harrell for more time. It is worth it to note that he has no semblance of a three-point shot and he knocked down just 62.6 percent of his free throws.
Last season, Harrell saw his workload nearly double from his rookie season, jumping from 9.7 minutes to 18.3 minutes per game. His role, where he averaged 9.1 points (on an impressive 65.2 percent from the field) and 3.8 rebounds, was largely that of a reserve behind Rockets’ starter Clint Capela. Harrell spent most of his minutes at center last season, though his 6-foot-8, 240-pound frame makes him more suited for the power forward slot. His ability to stretch the floor, or lack thereof, is what is ultimately hindering him from being a legitimate power forward, as he shot just 31.0 percent from 10 feet and beyond last season on 42 attempts. Nevertheless, Harrell will likely see a similar workload with the Clippers this upcoming season as he did last year with the Rockets. Though, his exact role will largely depend on how coach Doc Rivers feels about Sam Dekker and Willie Reed as reserve frontcourt options as well.
The 32nd pick in the 2015 NBA Draft played sparingly as a rookie, seeing time in fewer than half of the Rockets’ games and averaging 3.6 points and 1.7 rebounds per game. Harrell was impressive in 12 games for the Rio Grande Valley Vipers of the D-League, however, posting averages of 24.3 points, 9.3 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 2.4 blocks in 38.9 minutes per game. Known for his scrappy style of play, the undersized Harrell is an explosive athlete but struggles shooting the ball outside of the painted area. Over the long haul, Harrell projects as a rebounding/defensive specialist, and that’s the role he’ll be asked to fill for the Rockets in 2016-17. Harrell’s physicality and hustle should be enough to earn him a minor rotational role, though his inability to space the floor could ultimately keep him from being a regular contributor in Mike D’Antoni’s pace-and-space system.
In his junior season with the Cardinals, Harrell averaged 15.7 points, 9.2 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 0.9 steals, and 1.2 blocks in 35 minutes per game through 35 contests. After being drafted 32nd overall by the Rockets, Harrell played in four summer league games where he averaged 16.5 points, 1.0 assist, 8.0 rebounds, 1.0 steal, and 1.3 blocks in 28 minutes per game. The Louisville star surprised many this summer as he appeared to play with the same demeanor as he did in college but against better competition. Harrell is a phenomenal rebounder and is very lanky despite being a slightly undersized power forward at 6-8. With the impressive numbers he put up during summer league, Harrell is moving in the right direction towards playing time, but in order to start seeing extensive minutes, he will need to develop more of a three-point shot as he was only able to manage a mere 24 percent last year at Louisville.
