Houston selected Harrell with the No. 32 overall pick in this past year’s NBA Draft, and decided to sign the former Louisville Cardinal after a strong Summer League showing.
Harrell helped the Cardinals capture their third ever National Championship in 2012-13 as Louisville took-down the Michigan Wolverines in the title game. Harrell averaged 11.6 points and 6.9 rebounds per game in his three years at Louisville.
