Former Kentucky Wildcat Josh Harrellson Released by Houston

Josh Harrellson had a good year for the Knicks, but now he's bouncing around.

Some bad news today for Big Jorts, aka Josh Harrellson. Or an opportunity, depending on how you look at it.

The Rockets waived Josh Harrellson today to make room for Carlos Delfino, the team announced.

Harrellson was acquired by the Rockets from the New York Knicks as part of the Marcus Camby sign-and-trade on July 11.

That's the tough old world of the NBA for you. Harrellson has been playing well, and was averaging about 4 points and 4 rebounds in the summer leagues. He's seen as a versatile big man, so it shouldn't be too hard for him to get picked up somewhere.

Harrellson's first year as a New York Knick was productive, but injuries slowed him down quite a bit. Getting moved around and sometimes winding up on waivers is just a part of the life of an NBA player at Josh's level. His size and effort are always going to be useful at somewhere -- if not in the NBA, then for a team overseas.

Nobody said it would be easy, but Josh has exceeded all expectations from me so many times that nothing he does would surprise me.
