Former Blue Devil Harry Giles was headed for greatness before his knee injuries slowed his career. He had a huge reputation in high school and was the #1 player in his class, ahead of guys like Lonzo Ball, Dennis Smith Jr. and former Duke teammate Jayson Tatum, all of whom were drafted ahead of him.

He went to Sacramento with the 20th pick in 2017 had his moments with the Kings and the Portland Trailblazers.

But he still hasn’t gotten to where people thought he would.

Now he’s signed a non-guaranteed contract with the LA Clippers, who need some front court help.

Clearly it’s not where he thought he would be but he still has a chance to get there. And he has a member of the Brotherhood waiting in LA: Luke Kennard, who was a Duke teammate, will be a teammate again. And he’ll also see Justise Winslow, who like him is trying to come back after some serious injury issues. They should be able to help each other.
