Hempfield grad Kason Harrell is a basketball player at Purdue Fort Wayne.

Kason Harrell’s journey to professional basketball reached a high note Monday night when the former Hempfield star signed a contract with the Fort Wayne Mad Ants, the NBA G League affiliate of the Indiana Pacers.

Harrell, who graduated last year from Purdue Fort Wayne, had a tryout with the Mad Ants on Sept. 21 at the Turnstone Plassman Athletic Center in Fort Wayne.

He also worked out for the Maine Red Claws, the Boston Celtics’ G League team.

The 6-foot-2, 192-pound point guard has an agent with GoEmpire Group. Additional terms of his contract will be contingent upon him making the team.

Training camp begins Oct. 28.

Players who sign “Select Contracts” make $125,000 for the five-month G League season.

Harrell, the all-time leading scorer at Hempfield, averaged 15.1 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.6 assists a game in his final season at Purdue Fort Wayne.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
