Promising Harangody looks to sign soon


07:48 AM ET 07.28 | Luke Harangody's agent hopes his client will sign a deal this week. Mark Bartelstein told that he plans to talk with Danny Ainge, Boston's president of basketball operations, sometime this week to try and iron out a deal for the former Notre Dame standout. "I'm hopeful we can get it done pretty quickly," Bartelstein said. The 6-foot-8 forward, chosen by Boston with the No. 52 pick in last month's NBA draft, was arguably the C's best player during the team's summer league schedule in Orlando, Fla. when he averaged 16.6 points and 6.8 rebounds per game. Just as important, he showed the ability to score from the perimeter as well off the dribble -- areas of his game that many questioned leading up the draft.

Don't know this guy. Are we saying he may get a job on the bench or that he could possibly contribute something this year?

If the behind the scenes talk about this kid are true then he's cut from the same cloth of past Boston players - Hard-nosed player and tough...!

He is actually not a bad player, I saw him play in the summer league and he is a straight up huslter that isn't scared to bang with you down low. He would def be a great practice player or 8th-9th player coming off the bench. He also has a solid mid range shot for a big guy, I would sign him to non contract. He will work hard for you.

He went to high school where I went in Indiana and I came back to watch him play. He dominated there. Then went on to Notre Dame and grew into a hard-nosed, tough player. He should make the team, and if not be a big contributor this year, definitely next year. He can rebound, score inside, has developed both hands and has worked on his jumper. Kind of a Tyler Handsborough, but with more meat on his bones.

Great player to have on your squad

I don't think his lastname will look good on an NBA jersey. Overseas maybe?
