“I think it’s not a whole lot different,” coach Austin Ainge said of the forward’s standing as a draftee among free agents. “I mean, he’s trying to make the team like everybody else. He doesn’t have any guarantees. But obviously he has the advantage of the coaching staff and the front office really liking him. That’s why they selected him. But he’s a good player. His jump shot’s really improved the last couple of years.”
If you look at Harangody’s body his freshman year of college and his body now, you can tell he’s a hard worker. It’s no surprise, then, that his jumper has also gotten a lot better. Now, if only hard work could change Harangody’s height, wingspan and athleticism, the Celtics might really have themselves a player.
