Tobias Harris hits three to force overtime vs. Bucks (VIDEO)

Apr 11, 2013, 10:21 AM EDT

Way back in Summer League, PBT was trying to tell you that Tobias Harris could play.

He was on the Bucks roster but with them having a few veterans and trying to make the playoffs, Scott Skiles (then Jim Boylan) buried him on the bench. Harris was traded to Orlando where young guys get the run of the place and he has averaged 16.9 points and 8.8 rebounds a game.

Harris brought a little extra fire against his old team Wednesday, dropping 30 points and grabbing 19 boards. That included this three to send the game to overtime (he was fouled and could have won it in regulation, but missed the free throw). He also threw down a dunk in overtime of the 113-103 Orlando win after the game had been decided and tradition dictates Harris should have dribbled it out. But instead, he gave his old team another reminder of what they gave up.

    He’s looked great in his two games vs. the Bucks, especially so last night, but the Bucks HAD to play Drew Gooden before Harris…oh wait. :-(

    I hate to see good, drafter talent like Harris traded away, especially when you only end up renting a player (Reddick) for two months in return. No knock on Reddick, but the Bucks aren’t any better since acquiring him and will be swept by the Heat in Round One of the playoffs, so not convinced the moved helped the Bucks at all.

    Again, not to knock Magic fans, but the Bucks are backing into the playoffs, based upon the fact they are the best of the worst. Not exactly a great way to gauge your team’s progress.

    The Milwaukee Bucks are so poorly managed organizationally from top to bottom that they make the Pittsburgh Pirates organization look like Google.

    The Bucks are terrible with front office decisions. I was waiting for them to give this guy a shot. Went to games to see him when he did get a shot and Mbah A Moute was hurt and he got some more PT, but it was a terrible decision to bench this guy and rid him from Milwaukee.

    He was young when he came into the league and pretty raw, but he progressed nicely and was going to be a solid contributor who would have been cheap for another 2 years…figures the Bucks would dump a guy like that. All for JJ Redick, who can’t even stay in front of an ancient Jason Kidd on defense. SMH SMH SMH Did I mention PBT reported that the Bucks offered Redick 40 million and 5 years. Even Drew Gooden thinks that’s a bad contract.
