Montrezl Harrell finalist for NBA sixth man of the year

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.
