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.
