Default Evaluating Magic's young core: Tobias Harris

Sometimes when you are trading a player who is heading into free agency – even a solid role player – you come hat in hand. You aren’t dealing from a position of strength as you try to move a rental. You hope to at least receive a player with a salary-cap friendly expiring contract.

At first blush, the Magic’s return on the J.J. Redick deal didn't look as if it would move the needle. And then Harris got the ball in his hands regularly.

Harris had an immediate impact as a starter at power forward. In 27 games he played after arriving from the Milwaukee Bucks in a multi-player trade featuring Redick, he averaged 17.3 points and 8.5 rebounds in a whopping 36 minutes per game. His rebounding was a pleasant surprise, although his shot selection was sometimes suspect, especially from 3-point land (31 percent).
