QUOTE: “I’m the same weight I played at last year but I am more toned and less body fat. It just makes you a more explosive player being able to guard threes and fours and still be as fast.”
JOSH COHEN’S ANALYSIS: It’s apparent Jacque Vaughn is planning to explore his guys at different positions and it’s a big reason for the change in body types across the roster. Harris’ improved strength will permit him to compete effectively against some of the more conventional power forwards in the league such as David West, Carlos Boozer and Kevin Garnett. But because his body fat is significantly lower, Harris, if necessary, can still fit into his more natural small forward spot.
