The number of former Wildcats playing in the NBA is a growing list, but one that suffered a possible casualty today. The Houston Chronicle is reporting that Josh Harrellson has been waived by the Houston Rockets after the franchise’s acquisition of Carlos Delfino. Harrellson was acquired by the Rockets in a trade earlier this summer, and was expected to play alongside fellow Wildcat forwards Terrence Jones and Patrick Patterson.
Harrellson could be picked up by another team before the season begins. He averaged a respectable 4.4 points and 3.9 rebounds per game while playing in 37 games for the Knicks last year. In a league short on big men, Harrellson will hopefully find a new home soon.
