When Orlando re-signed Harris in the offseason, I thought they were committing to making Harris a focal point of their offense. Instead, he’s often been relegated to the 4th or 5th option. In spite of this, he’s managed to stay efficient and contribute on offense. In addition, he’s been a consistent defender. He’s doing all of this at just 23 years old. So, why are we hearing that Orlando is not “discouraging offers for him?” This may be a blessing in the long run for Harris. Tobias has been great for Orlando, but imagine how efficient he could be handling the ball with a roll man like DeAndre Jordan setting the screen? Or, imagine how efficient he could be on defense with a rim protector like Jordan roaming the paint?

Anthony’s goal remains winning a championship with the Knicks. “One in New York is better than multiple somewhere else, so that was the reason I wanted to come to New York,” he said. “That’s the reason why I’m in New York, so it just bothers me when I started hearing all these trade rumors and trade talks. I don’t know where it comes from, so sometimes it gets to you as a player and you just get tired of hearing something all the time. I’m not on the run. I could have ran somewhere when I was a free agent (in 2014), you know what I’m saying? I came back for a reason. I came back because I wanted to do this.”
