|Acquiring SF Tobias Harris may not be a blockbuster move, but it fills a need for the Celtics.|
RealGM Sources: Orlando restricted free agent Tobias Harris pursues near-max offer; Detroit, Boston leading suitors. http://t.co/a0iP2wQ8yx— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) June 26, 2015
It is worth noting the Harris is a restricted free agent, which means Orlando will have a chance to match any offer. However, it is widely expected that the Magic will not match on a max or near-max offer. After remaining hesitant to offer Harris the contract he seeks and drafting the 6'8 Mario Hezonja on draft night, it appears Harris will be on his way out of Orlando.
Reportedly seeking about $15 million or more, the Celts have the cap space for Harris, and he fits a need.
Despite nagging ankle injuries, Harris averaged 17.1 points and 6.3 rebounds in 34.8 minutes last season.
