Tobias Harris
PF, 6’9, 235lbs, 24 years old, 6 years of experience

Worked a nice two-man game with Smith to lead the team in scoring, as well as in scoring efficiency for non-centres, while only being third in both minutes and usage rate. Played even better from the bench, becom-ing far more efficient from all areas while picking up the pace, and showing himself to certainly be the best offensive player on the team, able to shoot, post, run and handle. Benching Harris may have helped re-balance the rotation, but this does not mean he did anything to deserve it.

Player Plan: Two years for $30.8 million remaining. The contract declines, which could give him very good value at the upcoming deadline if his play from this season sustains.

Tobias Harris

Once Harris was needlessly thrown away by Milwaukee, Orlando gave him open season to score as much as he wanted. And he did. In 27 games, Harris returned 17.3 points and 8.5 rebounds per game, shooting 45% from the field and an improved 31% from three. It wasn't an especially efficient 17.3ppg, yet Harris has the sort of skills and polish that belie his 20 years of age, and he's already putting them together. Scott Skiles's concerns about his defense are valid, yet were never the reason to DNP-CD a younger with so much genuine promise. Between Harris and Harkless, the Magic have the forwards position pencilled in for a while.

Pick 19: Picking on behalf of Milwaukee as a part of the agreed-upon-but-not-yet-ratified three way trade, Charlotte selects Tobias Harris of Tennessee. Tobias is immediately given, and wears, a Bobcats hat, despite everyone on the broadcast being repeatedly made aware throughout the broadcast that this pick is being traded to the Bucks. This lack of hat synergy happens many times throughout the course of the evening, as is the case every year, and detracts from both the broadcast. They also ruin the podium photos, which should rank amongst the player's life highlights, undermined by a clerical error.

The question, I guess, is simple - why wear the hats at all?

Tobias's role on the Bucks is not immediately obvious, given the presence of Stephen Jackson, Carlos Delfino and Turk Nowitzki on the wings, with Drew Gooden at power forward, and with Cucumber Amootay expected (and sorely needing) to be re-signed. Chris Douglas-Roberts may also be in the mix again, too, and there doesn't appear to be a single minute for Tobias anywhere. Nevertheless, despite being the youngest NCAA player in the draft, Tobias plays like one of the oldest. He has good size, good versatility, great smarts, and has a long shot at Shane Battier-like potential. Or, if he goes in a different direction, Corliss Williamson.
