Who is Kenny Hasbrouck?

The Miami Heat filled Rafer Alston's spot on the roster with rookie Kenny Hasbrouck out of Siena. Kenny went undrafted and was brought into Heat camp in the offseason, but was cut prior to the pre-season during injury.

He is described as a combo guard who is good at attacking the rim. According to coach Spoelstra he was a hard guy to cut and they have already seen improvement in his jumpshot since last summer. This claim is backed up by his numbers for the Rio Grande Valley Vipers 50.4 FG%, 38.1% 3PT%, and 80.6 FT%... a steady climb from his college averages of 44.5%/37.6%/74.0%.

His D-League averages of 16.9 pts, 2.9 ast, 1.6 stl suggest he could be a scorer off the bench with good ball hawking ability, but not much of a distributor. It will be interesting to get a look at him in live action, but this week's schedule is not very friendly.

Here is a story on Kenny and his family from last year's tourney, seems like a solid citizen at least... hopefully his play matches his attitude:



  1. was the heat really that bad last night?

    do u believe heisley will match offers for gay?

  3. A month or so left and we're talking about Kenny Hasbrouck? Is it really this bad?

  4. "do u believe heisley will match offers for gay?"

    I think so. They were in the playoff race this year. They also took on Randolph's contract and signed AI. If they didn't want to spend money I don't think they would have traded for Randolph or signed AI.

    $12-13 million for a 20ppg SF just about to enter his prime is pretty reasonable.

  5. Wade claims he will try to lure another MAX free agent to Miami this summer.

  6. Someone post up those Beasley Haslem stats for when they each play 30+ minutes please, i'd like to see the updated version.
