RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016-17

There was no outlook written for Maurice Harkless.

2015-16

Once one of the promising young wings in the NBA, Harkless fell out of favor with coach Jacque Vaughn and interim boss James Borrego last season, garnering 27 DNP-CDs and 10 more contests on the Magic's inactive list. In his 45 outings, Harkless surpassed 20 minutes of run on just 10 occasions, as veterans like Channing Frye, Willie Green, and Ben Gordon were tabbed when the young core was afflicted by injury. Consequently, Harkless' output tumbled 3.5 points (on 40 percent shooting), 2.4 rebounds, 0.7 steals, and 0.6 assists in 15 minutes per game but the 22-year-old has been afforded an opportunity to rebound after July's trade to the Blazers. Bereft of a talent like Nicolas Batum, who was shipped to Charlotte this summer, small forward is open for business in Portland. General manager Neil Olshey expects Al-Farouq Aminu to occupy Batum's former spot in the starting five, but he also believes that Harkless can prosper within the organization's player development system. Nevertheless, until Harkless flashes a semblance of his potential, he's a difficult prospect to trust.

2014-15

Maurice Harkless is entering his third season in the NBA. During his sophomore campaign, Harkless averaged 7.4 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 1.2 steals, and 0.6 blocks in 24 minutes per game through 80 games played. He shot 46 percent from the field on 6.0 attempts per game and 59 percent from the free-throw line on 1.8 attempts per game. Harkless improved to become an above-average three-point shooter last season, converting 38 percent of his shots from beyond the arc. He finished 34th in total steals (97). Sadly, it was his second consecutive season shooting less than 60 percent from the free-throw line, and even though half his shot attempts were in the restricted area, Harkless fell four percent shy (56 percent) of the league average in that zone. The addition of Channing Frye at power forward creates a position battle at starting small forward between Harkless and Tobias Harris. With Harkless possessing two traits his counterpart lacks - quality perimeter defense and outside shooting - coach Jacque Vaughn may anoint the St. John's alumnus the Opening Night starter at small forward.

2013-14

Prospective owners see upside when they look at Harkless. He had a stretch in mid-March during his rookie season where he averaged 16.2 points, 6.8 rebounds, 3.8 steals and 1.4 three-pointers per game over a five-game span. Of course, he averaged better than 37 minutes per game over that stretch, but it represented a quick glimpse of his potential. Over the course of the whole season, his 1.2 steals and 0.8 blocks in 26 minutes per game are the only numbers that really stand out, but he will also be just 20 years old for the entirety of the 2013-14 regular season. He should start the season as the Magic's starting small forward, and if he plays relatively well, playing time shouldn't be a big issue. The Magic are rebuilding, and Harkless is one of the pieces that is part of the long-term plan, so he will be allowed some growing pains. He makes for a nice high-upside play at the end of standard league drafts and is worth targeting in dynasty formats earlier than that.

2012-13

Harkless was a key piece in the Howard trade, and clearly the organization has high hopes for the former Johnnie. Harkless is a solid 69 with good athleticism, but is still incredibly raw with only 32 games of college experience. His absence until mid-November will delay his development, and he needs to improve his outside shooting. Orlando expects him to be a contributor off the bench.
