When all is said and done Thursday night, three former Michigan State Spartans (Adreian Payne, Gary Harris, Keith Appling) could be drafted onto NBA rosters. Arguably the player with the most upside is Harris, a shooting guard who chose to leave the university after just his sophomore season. In one of the more heartfelt moments we’ve recently seen on Instagram, his former teammate Denzel Valentine posted an awesome message that speaks to their friendship and work ethic.
Valentine, who was recently named a captain for the 2014-2015 squad, said Harris will always be his “right-hand man”.
Valentine is entering his junior season – the same that Harris would be if he’d stayed in East Lansing.
Many believe that Harris is a top-ten talent, while others think he may not go as a lottery pick. Whichever teams drafts him will be getting at least one new fan.
