Montrezl Harrell has reached a plea deal in his drug case.
However, he has reached a deal that allows him to avoid any significant punishment.
The talented basketball player, who played for the Hornets last season, agreed to plead guilty to a charge of simple marijuana possession in exchange for his record being wiped clean if he stays out of trouble for a year, according to TMZ.
His attorney Drew Findling told TMZ his client “is a devoted family man and a committed professional basketball player and has never been a part of any form of marijuana trafficking or any other illegal activity.”
Now, Harrell will attempt to find a team to sign him with his criminal case in the books and he got off without getting in much trouble.
Last season, he averaged 13.1 points per game and 6.1 rebounds during time with the Wizards and Hornets.
Those are very respectable stats and he’s only 28 years old. He has plenty of basketball ahead of him, and it’s hard to imagine he doesn’t find a new team to play for with this case behind him.
