2011 NBA Draft Results: Josh Harrellson Goes No. 45 to New York Knicks

Although he doesn't seem completely ready to play in the NBA, Josh Harrellson has definitely got some game. 

He only averaged 7.6 points and 8.7 rebounds per game for the Kentucky Wildcats, but the 6'10" power forward really stepped up his game when March Madness rolled around. 

Harrellson is never going to be a terrific low post presence, but his passing, rebounding, size and toughness will make him a mainstay on an NBA roster. 

Harrellson was drafted by the New York Knicks in the second round of the draft, significantly higher than initially expected. His job scoring will be made much easier while he plays with Carmelo Anthony and Amar'e Stoudemire.
