Harkless to Resemble George?

Small forward Maurice Harkless was arguably the Orlando Magic’s hardest worker of the offseason as he committed himself to bulking up his body, tearing apart and rebuilding his jump shot and bettering his ball-handling.

The hope is that Harkless can someday soon become a similar player to the very one that he guarded in Tuesday night’s season-opener – Indiana’s Paul George.

Magic GM Rob Hennigan and head coach Rob Hennigan aren’t keen on comparing players, and George and Harkless are different types of players in several aspects. But because of their positions and similar body types, the comparisons between the two are almost undeniable.
