    Harris won't sign extension

    1. He's currently shooting 45% at the 3 point line in the pre-season
    2. His defensive RAPM last year was better than Terrence Jones'
    3. He's a better FT shooter than Jones, making 80.7% last year
    4. Between 10 and 16 ft he shot 42% last year versus Jones' 39%

    He'd be another undersized 4 but maybe it could be a buy low scenario?

    Good young player. If he'd sign a reasonable contract, I'd be all for working out a trade. I'm sure if it makes sense, Morey is already all over it.

    Depends on how much he'd cost

    not worth more than $8 mill a year

    Fun Fact: My dad used to babysit the Harris brothers when they were younger.

    He'll pretty much be guaranteed to go to those 3places.

    The Nike thing is very insignificant at this point. Orlando controls him for at least the next 2 years (1 contract year plus a qualifying offer), and I doubt his endorsement deal is worth much.

    doesn't he play SMALL forward? Adding him doesn't address the needs at PF and PG.

    Plays both with more minutes at PF

    I'm a fan of his, but I wonder what it'd take.

    Want this guy. Knew this was going to happen when they extended Vucevic.

    Imagine if you are a GM for those 3 teams. Your job is certainly easier since sponsors gives incentives to players to sign for your team.

    Why? He's a RESTRICTED free agent next summer. The Magic could just match any offer he gets from one of those teams. I doubt Harris takes his $3.4M qualifying offer over the large, multi-year deal he'll undoubtedly get from Orlando (or elsewhere).

    He is a good player but he wouldn't have a spot on the team with Ariza here. I would like to see him with the LAL. Mr. Bean needs as much help as possible over there.

    Tobias is a power forward trapped in a small forward's body. He would fit right in on the Rockets.

    Love this kid talent. He hasn't put it all together, but when he's clicking he has all star potential.
