Tobias Harris tho
better than Jennings & Ilyasova i guess
Scott Skiles ftw
i would really like to know how much, if any decision Skiles had on that trade.
There are few missinformations when it comes to them.
Skiles left Bucks before Bucks traded Harris
. Skiles and Bucks mutally agreed to part ways at January 13, 2013.
Bucks, traded Harris late in February 2013, under coach Larry Drew.
It's no secret that Skiles didn't play him when they were together with Bucks, and to be honest, it's not hard to figure why. Hammond was desparate to make playoffs because his a** was on fire and he was prime candidate to get fired. Sanders was 24 and promising, Moute & Ilyasova were young (25 & 26) and productive and Dunleavy was Mr. Reliable, as he always was.
In Orlando, under Skiles, there was simply more mouth to feed so Harris averaged less points than in previous year.
If i had to bet, i would bet that Hennigan thought Gordon will be star so he moved Harris to give him more PT & usage.
If you need evidence of it, just look at his PT, it went from 20 mpg to 28 mpg after trade and his usage went from 16% to 18,5%. He averaged almost as many shots in March (148) than he,before trade averaged in November & December combind ( 158).
When you put things in perspective, i can't shake of feeling we traded Harris because we thought Gordon is future allstar.
Prediction day after Vuc, Gordon, Evan departure - most fans who are celebrating birth of new rebuild will be crying how rebuild is painful before 2022-23 season ends.
