Houston Rockets Draft Prospect: D’Angelo Harrison

What if… the Houston Rockets traded their 2nd-Round (#32 pick) for a back-up forward and a later pick; and then with the later pick took St. John’s D’Angelo Harrison?

Now that the NFL Draft is over and done with, the NBA is next up on the clock. The league is under two months away from another set of strong prospects. Minnesota’s Andrew Wiggins took the NBA’s Rookie of the Year honors, but watch out for Houston rookies Clint Capela and Nick Johnson to make an impact in the future. The Rockets have two set picks in the draft, but who say’s they can’t find a way to draft the senior D’Angelo Harrison?

At 6’3-ish D’Angelo Harrison isn’t going to stomp over defenders or blow past anyone, more of a methodical player that scores with ease. He played all four year’s at St. John’s in New York, a long way from home in Missouri City, Texas.

The three-point shot is one of Harrison’s favorites, launching over 750 three’s in his college career.

Harrison is a mature player that plays with his ‘heart on his sleeve’ and shows up every night to ball. He led the Red Storm to the NCAA Tournament birth this past season where they fell to San Diego State in the first-round.

His career in Queens is nothing to shy away from, he played solid minutes and contributed since he arrived there. The Big East is a strong conference and Harrison proved he was worthy very early in his time with St. John’s.
