Montrezl Harrell has been employing patience during his time in the NBA.
Now after his fourth season in the league, the 25-year-old out of Louisville is finally seeing hard work and persistence pay off in a major way.
Harrell, along with teammate Lou Williams and Pacers big man Domantas Sabonis, has been named as a finalist for the NBA Sixth Man of the Year Award.
Harrell’s emergence came after an up-and-down first three years in the league. He played sparingly, and rarely in any big game situations for the Houston Rockets for his first two years.
