Harris came to Orlando last February from Milwaukee, where he had rarely played the previous two seasons for the Bucks. All he did in the final 27 games of last season was average 17.3 points, 8.5 rebounds and 1.37 blocks for the Magic. He scored 20 points nine times and 30 points twice, showing the Magic that he could be the kind of go-to scorer the team could build around offensively.

Better shot selection is a big key for Harris, who spent much of his offseason bulking up from 223 pounds to 240 pounds and working on his all-around game. Harris also sees an air of confidence from a young Magic squad that wasn’t necessarily there last season.

``We have some experience under our belts now because a lot of young guys played last year,’’ Harris said. ``So taking that with us into this season, that’s a big factor for us and it should help us make some major improvements.’’
