Maurice Harkless 2017-2018 Season Outlook


Recommended Posts

Snuck into top 100 in 9 cat last year-- do yall see any chance of a repeat or improvement this time around? Hard to tell if he gains or loses minutes this year, but if he can improve from the line and find 12ppg, could be a great glue guy.

He had good value while Aminu sidelined last year - they had similar roles. He needs the minutes to be consistent and collects defensive stats.

With Dame, CJ, Nurk carrying the offense, I see him as a 3's and D specialist who will often guard opponent's best wing player.

Did anyone watch the Portland-Indiana game yesterday? How come only 20 min for Harkless? I see Turner got 32 min - I'm guessing he was playing really well.

 

Obviously still early in the season, but last season, Harkless played 20 or less only 8 times. And his first game below 20 min happened mid-Jan.

He had inflated value because of some incentive in his contract, stating he'd hit a bonus if he scoring an X amount of threes. The three is gone now.

Ahhhh forgot about this. He had a contract incentive that gave him a bonus for shooting 35% or better from three. That was a funny storyline at the end of last year.

I stupidly hoped he'd keep shooting them as well. :unsure:

A 19pts, 8rebs game with 5 3pts and a steal out of no where.

Was there any change in their game plan?

Keeping a keen eye on him as one of the few 1-1-1 potentials.

 

Shabazz napier was out, so stotts played with the rotation.

Is this guy worth picking up? hes been pretty hot lately and 4 games this week might be valuable for fantasy playoffs.

 

anyone picking him up?

 

Yeah depending on who you're dropping. 

 

I dropped James Johnson for him because of the extra game. May have been a mistake but we'll see.
