DET Forward: 6’9, 235 lbs; 7th year, Tennessee 

NBA Role: offensive-minded forward • Star UnderDOG

Tobias Harris: a hard-to-stop hybrid forward who offers a strong inside-out punch to Stan Van Gundy’s lineup; deadliest as a matchup problem four man, though Tobias also plays the 3 – some of you may be unaware of Harris’s scoring ability: he’s one of the more exciting “I get buckets” forwards today – aggressive nature: loves attacking hard after elbow catches, recognizes mismatches & stays patient when posting; constantly in attack mode: Harris loves having the ball in his hands, isn’t afraid of the big moment; needs to improve shot creation, passing out of double teams/tight situations; calling Tobias ‘Motor City Melo‘ is accurate in almost every sense* – similar style: powerful body, scoring acumen, subpar D; could break out even further in SVG’s system, especially since his three ball has gotten better; future All-Star?

*younger, in a smaller market (therefore, more unheralded) – still developing into a pure scorer

Signature Move: dribble, pull-up
