Tobias Harris could be NBA's "most promising" small forward, ESPN analyst says

Tobias Harris - Sam Sharpe-USA TODAY Sports

Tom Haberstroh suggests that Harris has more promise than some of the league's other prospects at the position.

In a roundtable discussion of the league's small forwards, ESPN analyst Tom Haberstroh named Tobias Harris of the Orlando Magic as the league's "most promising" player at the position. Three other panelists named Paul George of the Indiana Pacers, while another suggested Harrison Barnes of the Golden State Warriors.

"Though the average NBA fan probably doesn't know his name," Haberstroh says of Harris, "the 20-year-old averaged 17 [points] and 8 [rebounds] for the Magic last season with a 17.0 player efficiency rating. That's promise."

At the NBA trading deadline, Orlando acquired Harris, Doron Lamb, and Beno Udrih from the Milwaukee Bucks for J.J. Redick, Gustavo Ayón, and Ish Smith. Harris' half-season in pinstripes went well, and he became the second-youngest Magic player in history to reach the 30-point mark in a single game. Later, in a game against his former club on April 10th, Harris had 30 points, 19 boards, and five assists in an overtime victory.
