Tobias Harris was a woeful 3-of-11 in Wednesday’s season-ending loss, finishing with seven points, six rebounds two assists, a steal and a triple.
Harris was also a troubling 0-for-4 from the free throw line, though that’s the exception far more than the norm here. He was a popular pre-season target as a steady presence with low turnovers, and that held true throughout the year. He was moved from the starting five to the bench and back but never saw his production waver too much. He was a top-70 play in terms of per game value and was top-60/40 in total value, getting a boost from playing in all 82 games. Harris ended with averages of 31.3 minutes, 16.1 points, 5.1 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 0.7 steals, 0.5 blocks and 1.3 triples on .481 from the floor and .841 from the free throw line. Add in his minuscule 1.1 turnovers and you can see why he was a consistently helpful 9-cat play. There’s no reason to think he’ll do anything different next year.
