Tobias Harris is hoping to get a contract extension from the Magic before the Oct. 31 deadline.
"Obviously, I want to be here," Harris said on Monday. "But I think I'll just go out there and play basketball. I'll let my agent handle all that. I know they've been having some talks, but I don't really get too involved in it." If it doesn't happen by the deadline Harris will become a restricted free agent after the season. Sep 29 - 9:23 PM

Magic coach Jacque Vaughn hinted on Sunday that there will be increased competition for the SF position.

This comes as no surprise considering the Magic drafted Aaron Gordon, who could see some minutes at SF. Tobias had a slow season last year after injuries decimated his opportunities. Maurice Harkless is also going to be competing for minutes at the SF position which makes training camp all the more exciting as rotations are sorted out. This limits all three player's upside but Tobias Harris is still the player to target for now towards the end of the draft.

Tobias Harris is eligible for a contract extension, and he'd like to remain with the Magic

"Obviously, I want to be here. … I love the fans, the city of Orlando and the guys. Management knows I want to be here. It’s the perfect situation for me," said Harris. If the Magic do not sign Harris to an extension by the October 31 deadline, he will become a restricted free agent at the conclusion of the 2014-15 season. Harris averaged 14.6 points, 7.0 rebounds, 0.7 steals, and 0.4 blocks while shooting 80.7 percent from the line last season with the Magic, and he profiles as a mid-late round pick with some upside.

Tobias Harris is looking for a new deal and the Magic will talk to him about it this summer.

He'll be a restricted free agent after this season, but the Magic may want to lock him up before he gets a big offer sheet next summer. Harris may be playing more small forward after coach Jacque Vaughn liked to keep him as his primary bench forward last season, so he's a mid-late round pick with a high ceiling in fantasy leagues.

Tobias Harris stated in a recent interview that he was playing at "about 75 percent" healthy last season.

Harris missed the first 12 games of the season due to a high ankle sprain, returned for one game, and then went on to miss an additional nine. His numbers also regressed a bit as he averaged 14.6 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 0.5 three-pointers a game. However, Harris is now fully recovered and is set to become a restricted free agent at the end of the season, so it's possible we see a bit of a bounce back effort from the former waiver wire phenom.

Tobias Harris is participating in Basketball without Borders Africa activities this week in Johannesburg, South Africa.

He's working on putting on weight this offseason, which suggests he'll play a little more power forward. Although, the addition of Channing Frye makes small forward a bigger hole, so Harris could see plenty of time there, as well. Harris is a high-ceiling guy in the later rounds of drafts.

Tobias Harris is bulking up this summer in anticipation of playing more minutes at power forward next season.

"It’s definitely going to help me a lot," Harris said of the added muscle. "Going into the offseason a focus was on being able to guard those stronger guys. I’ve put my time in the weight room and I can definitely feel it." Harris shot 46.4 percent from the field last season with nearly half his attempts coming within eight feet of the hoop, and his aggressive style should benefit from his offseason strength-training regimen.

The Magic are expected to discuss a contract extension with Tobias Harris around Labor Day.

Orlando has until November 1 to negotiate an extension, after which they'll have to wait until the end of the season. Harris' role shrunk last season but he still averaged 14.6 points, 7.0 rebounds and 0.7 steals in 30 minutes per game. The bigger issue is that he missed 21 games, and has missed an average of 24 games per season in his three-year NBA career.
Jul 12 - 10:21 AM

Tobias Harris led the Magic on Sunday with 18 points in 27 minutes off the bench, while adding seven rebounds, two assists and three steals.

Magic coach Jacque Vaughn spread playing time evenly across his 10-man rotation, with no player logging more than Harris' 27 minutes. That meant guys like Doron Lamb, E'Twaun Moore and Ronnie Price all cracked the 20-minute barrier, though none of them did enough to aid fantasy owners.
Apr 13 - 8:30 PM

Tobias Harris excelled off the bench during Saturday's 100-92 win over the Wolves, scoring 17 points with six boards, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes.

Coach Jacque Vaughn has used him in spots at small forward this season, but he would much rather use Harris at power forward and do so off the bench. While he's easily the best offensive power forward on the team, the Magic still need to give Kyle O'Quinn his minutes. However, Harris does enough on a per-minute basis to be considered a must-start player until further notice.
Apr 5 - 10:05 PM

Tobias Harris logged 31 minutes during Friday's 91-80 loss to the Bobcats, scoring 15 points with eight boards, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.

With Nikola Vucevic (Achilles) out, Andrew Nicholson got the start and was really just a placeholder for the tip before Harris handled most of the work at power forward. Harris should get an uptick in value while Vucevic is out, so he should be viewed as a must-own player.
Apr 4 - 9:38 PM

Tobias Harris caught fire off the bench in Tuesday's surprise win vs. the Blazers, scoring 25 points and grabbing 11 rebounds with two 3-pointers and one block.

The Magic have a 19-52 record in a clear rebuilding year, but they shocked the West's fifth-seeded team thanks to big games from Harris and Nikola Vucevic (22 & 10). Orlando has one of the league's worst fantasy-playoff schedules and Harris was quiet in his past two games, averaging 9.0 points, so it's nice to see him deliver a gem in just 33 minutes off the bench.
Mar 25 - 9:32 PM

Tobias Harris had his worst game of 2014 against the Jazz on Saturday, making just 1-of-9 from the field for two points with four boards, two assists and one turnover in 16 minutes.

He was on fire against the Suns on Wednesday with 23 points and the law of averages had a say tonight. Harris did not even play in the third quarter and coach Jacque Vaughn may have just wanted to keep the cold guy on the bench. He's been too good to be worried just yet.
Mar 23 - 12:01 AM

Tobias Harris played well off the bench against the Suns on Wednesday, scoring 23 points with nine boards, three assists and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes.

Nikola Vucevic getting tossed in the first quarter really opened up some playing time and Harris stepped up. Despite coming off the bench, he's played less than 26 minutes just once since the All-Star break. In those previous 14 games, Harris averaged 17.9 points, 6.2 boards, 1.2 steals, 0.6 blocks and 0.6 triples on 51.7 percent from the field and 88.9 percent from the line. He has to be in all lineups right now.
Mar 20 - 1:32 AM

Tobias Harris hit 5-of-11 shots for 14 points, six rebounds and a 3-pointer in 28 minutes off the Magic bench on Tuesday.

We don't like the fact he's coming off the bench these days, but he's still playing pretty well. Harris is averaging 16.0 points, 6.0 rebounds and 1.4 steals over his last five games, despite the bench role.
