HoopsHype Tobias Harris rumors

September 12, 2014 Updates

Eery player reaches some kind of crossroads, and Magic forward Tobias Harris is looking both ways as he steps into the 2014-15 season. Harris will get an idea how the Magic value him, perhaps before the regular season begins. The deadline for rookie-scale extensions — Harris is part of the 2011 class — is Oct. 31 Does he fit into Orlando's long-term plans or not? He and the team can strike a new deal. The Magic also can still retain the ability to match any offer for Harris next summer if he becomes a restricted free agent. "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," Harris said after presenting a $50,000 check to Orange County Public Schools on Friday at the Orange County National Golf Club. Orlando Sentinel

Joel Embiid had a stress fracture of his back only three months ago and last Friday underwent surgery on his right foot to repair a broken bone. There might not be two worse injuries on a medical record for a 7-footer to enter the NBA with, meaning he’ll fall in Thursday’s draft. The Cavs would have taken him if he hadn’t required surgery on his foot, but now they aren’t going to touch him at No. 1 unless it’s to trade him. One team that sounds very interested in Embiid is Utah, at No. 5. The Jazz can put together a package including Enes Kanter, a future No. 1 and their pick and probably get Embid. It might take even less, considering Embiid’s first season could be a waste due to his latest injury. At No. 4, the Magic can put together a package featuring Aaron Afflalo or Tobias Harris plus its pick. New York Daily News

Team officials likely won't make a decision whether to pursue extensions with Vucevic and Harris at least until team officials see how the upcoming free agency period impacts their salary cap situation. Plus, the Magic don't need to reach extensions with Vucevic or Harris. The team can submit qualifying offers to Vucevic and Harris, and that move would make Vucevic and Harris restricted free agents following the 2014-15 season. The Magic would have the right to match any offer sheet that Vucevic or Harris might sign during the summer of 2015. Orlando Sentinel

After Tobias Harris encountered a setback in his return from a high-ankle sprain, the Orlando Magic forward received a second MRI on his lower left leg and sought a second medical opinion. The timetable for his return to the court remains in doubt, but it seems like he won’t be playing again in the immediate future. “High-ankle sprains take time, and everybody’s healing timeline is different,” Magic general manager Rob Hennigan said Saturday. “And, right now, Tobias is working through that and trying to figure [that] out. When he feels his ankle is right, he’ll be ready to play. So, our stance right now is to be precautious and make sure that we don’t rush him back.” Orlando Sentinel
