Tobias Harris made 4-of-5 from the field for nine points with five rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 18 minutes against the Hornets on Saturday.
He played the vast majority at small forward tonight a little under 75 percent at power forward last year. The Magic didn't have Nikola Vucevic or Aaron Gordon, so don't read too much into this year. Harris should still be terrific in his age-23 season. Oct 3 - 11:49 PM

Tobias Harris doesn't feel extra pressure after signing a four-year, $64 million contract with the Magic this summer.

The 23-year-old Harris has missed an average of 21.5 games during his four years in the NBA, but he's completely healthy heading into training camp. He's aiming to build on a solid 2014-15 campaign, during which he averaged 17.1 points, 1.3 triples, 6.3 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.5 blocks, and he's a potentially underrated fantasy asset who can often be drafted in the middle rounds.

Tobias Harris said that he is looking forward to going to war with Victor Oladipo this season.

"He's a guy on this team that I'll go to war with any single day just by his attitude and how much work he puts in," Harris said of Oladipo. "He knows this, and I know it. We're just going to both embrace that this whole season and on forward." Both players are expected to take on leadership roles this season and it's clear that they are tired of losing, so the Magic could be an exciting team to watch in the East with an interesting collection of young prospects.

Tobias Harris said that he wants to be a franchise player for the Magic.

"I definitely do," said Harris when asked if he wants to be viewed as a franchise cornerstone. "That’s my goal. I’ve always wanted to have that type of load. At the same time, our team has to take steps in the right direction. We have to crank it up a notch this upcoming season." Harris inked a four-year, $64 million deal with Orlando this offseason, and he'll be one of the Magic's go-to guys on offense this upcoming season. He posted averages of 17.1 points, 6.3 rebounds, 1.3 three-pointers and 1.0 steal per game last season, so he'll be worth a mid-round selection on draft day.
Aug 12 - 9:36 AM

Tobias Harris’ initial asking price on a contract last September and October was almost $16 million per season.

He basically met that with his four-year, $64 million deal from July, which is pretty solid for the Magic considering Harris had himself a nice 2015-16 season. Harris was surprisingly efficient after the break last season, posting a 56.1 true shooting percentage. The only other forwards to match that number and play 34 minutes per game were Trevor Ariza, Rudy Gay and LeBron James. Expect Harris to get even better in his age-23 season.

Tobias Harris and Victor Oladipo are expected to attend Team USA minicamp in August.

Harris is an intriguing potential candidate for the 2016 USA Olympics squad, but he'll face enormous competition in order to secure a final spot. Harris has plenty to prove this season after re-signing with the Magic for four years and $64 million. As for Oladipo, he'll have to absolutely wow the coaching staff with how loaded the roster's backcourt already stands.

Tobias Harris reportedly turned down a max offer from the Sacramento Kings before deciding to re-sign with the Magic.

This news has been refuted by Vlade Divac and there has been plenty of bad reporting about the Kings this summer. Harris didn't really get a fair shot when he played for coach Scott Skiles in Milwaukee, so it will be interesting to see how they gel in Orlando now that Harris is fresh off a four-year, $64 million contract.
Jul 5 - 11:11 AM

Tobias Harris said that he has a great relationship with head coach Scott Skiles.

"First off, me and Scott have a great relationship," Harris said. "What people don’t understand is that when he first coached me, I was 18 years old. And from 18 to being about to turn 23 now, I’m a completely different player. Even in Milwaukee, where I didn’t play as much, we still had a great dialogue. He just wanted me to work harder. He just said, ‘Your time is coming.’ So he was always encouraging for me." Harris just signed a four-year, $64 million contract, and it will be interesting to see what Skiles' plans are for Harris next season. For now, Harris will be a solid mid-round target.
Jul 4 - 9:52 AM

Restricted free agent Tobias Harris has come to terms on a four-year, $64 million deal to stay with the Magic.

Harris had quite a bit of interest around the league and it genuinely seemed like he might not be back in Orlando next season. But after swinging and missing on Paul Millsap, it seems the Magic got back on the Harris bandwagon and he'll be in a nice position to improve after last season.

According to Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe, the Magic are unlikely to match a max offer for Tobias Harris.

The Magic have two talented players in Aaron Gordon and Mario Hezonja who can play small forward, and their pursuit of Paul Millsap suggests that they may be willing to let Harris walk. The Celtics and Pistons are rumored to be interested in Harris, so it will be interesting to see how much teams are willing to give him with the cap set to rise in 2016.
Jul 1 - 1:21 PM

Tobias Harris is reportedly looking for a max or near-max offer sheet in restricted free agency.

Early reports have Harris preferring not to return to Orlando and the Magic are also reportedly not going to match an offer sheet if the offer gets high enough, so there is a good chance that Harris will be on the move soon. The Celtics and Pistons have reportedly emerged as the frontrunners to land Harris, but we'll keep an eye on the situation as free agency begins at midnight on July 1.

The Celtics and Pistons have reportedly emerged as the frontrunners to land Tobias Harris during free agency.

Harris is reportedly looking for a deal close to the max, and that could prove to be too rich for Orlando to match. Harris' slashing style and outside shooting could be a nice fit in Stan Van Gundy's offense in Detroit, and he could be a go-to option on offense in Boston. The Lakers and Knicks are also rumored to be interested in Harris, so it doesn't sound like he'll have any shortage of suitors when he enters restricted free agency. For what it's worth, Harris has reportedly maintained a dialogue with Scott Skiles, exchanging "encouraging messages."

Coach Scott Skiles said his classification of his relationship with Tobias Harris is "great."

Back when Tobias was 19 and had a very eye-catching offseason, Harris fell out of favor in Skiles' Bucks rotation. Skiles said today that Luc Mbah a Moute was better on defense while Mike Dunleavy was better on offense. Now that Tobias is entering his prime, maybe he'll play him more consistently. Of course, they'll have to be able to sign him this summer.
May 29 - 6:44 PM

Tobias Harris said that he is not worried about becoming a restricted free agent in the summer, as he knows the Magic will have the final say whether or not he will stay in Orlando.

"I don’t really worry. I trust in God and I know that He has the ultimate plan for me,’’ Harris said. "You get a little nervous at times, but I think everything is going to work out for me. I wanted to go out and have a successful year and a great year and I think I’ve put in the work. It’s in the teams hands with whatever wants to be done. All I can do is really sit back and be patient at this time." Harris is expected to draw some serious interest in July, most notably from the Knicks, and it will be interesting to see if the Magic are wiling to match any offer. We will be following this story very closely over the summer.
Apr 19 - 9:54 AM

Tobias Harris will not play on Wednesday due to a sore right Achilles.

This is the first we've heard of an Achilles injury for Harris and it sounds like a convenient excuse to rest him in a meaningless game, as the Magic can't move up or down the draft-lottery board. His absence shifts more playing time to Moe Harkless and Aaron Gordon.
