Harrold is good to have because he can play forward in the event of an injury.. Maybe Gio should have been waived but they seem to like him a lot
I agree I wasn't sold on him either like some people but to lose him to waivers hurts.

I would have rather lost Harrold because we have too many forwards now so the likely hood we need Harrold to play forward this year is slim. Drop someone like Volch to the 7th spot and keep Urbom.
