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

Similar to Monta Ellis and Wesley Matthews, Harris turned down more money from the Kings, so that says all you need to know about what is going on in Sacramento right now. 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Apr 15 - 6:28 PM

Tobias Harris had 26 points, 12 boards, one assist and two 3-pointers during a 100-93 loss to the Heat on Monday.

The Magic are planning to re-sign Harris this summer and it's going to cost them quite a bit to do so. Harris played well over his last five, averaging 17.6 points, 7.6 boards, 1.2 assists and 1.6 treys on 50.0 percent from the field. He's going to be a mid-round target next season, assuming he stays in Orlando.

The Magic are planning to re-sign Tobias Harris in free agency.

Harris, who is slated to become a restricted free agent, will have no shortage of offers, but Orlando GM Rob Hennigan said that the club plans on bringing him back "no matter what" the cost is. We'll see how serious he is when Harris starts getting multiyear offers between $12 and $15 million annually.
Apr 13 - 9:19 AM

Tobias Harris scored 15 points against the Knicks on Saturday with five boards, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer.

He'll be a restricted free agent this summer and there have been plenty of rumors of the Long Island native going back home. Harris and the Magic have a big of a logjam at forward with Aaron Gordon likely in line of minutes, but he'd still be main option. He's a must-start player the rest of the way this season.
Apr 11 - 9:44 PM

Tobias Harris is set to become a restricted free agent in the summer, but he wants to remind people that the Magic will determine whether he stays or goes.

"There's a lot of things you have to look at in any type of free agency, but what I think what everybody's beginning to forget is that [I'll be] a restricted free agent," Harris said. "So whatever happens, it's in the organization's hands to make a call. So I think everybody has to really keep that in mind and not just say, 'You might want to go here and there.' " Harris has had a pretty decent season and is sure to command a lot of interest this summer, but any interested teams will likely have to overpay to have a chance of stealing him from the Magic. For obvious reasons, we will be watching this story very closely in the offseason.
Apr 11 - 9:40 AM

Tobias Harris stayed hot in a win over the Bucks on Saturday, scoring 23 points with 10 boards, two assists, one steal, three blocks and five 3-pointers in 41 minutes.

Wow. Harris will be in the running for fantasy line of the night after this performance. He shot 8-of-15 from the field and the best part of this line was the fact that he did it on the second game of a back-to-back set. Harris is now averaging 20.2 points, 7.2 boards, 1.2 assists, 0.8 blocks, 1.0 steal and 2.2 3-pointers over his last five games, and he should be locked into all lineups as long as can avoid any injuries.
