A starter at small forward in the Orlando Magic’s first two preseason games, Maurice Harkless effortlessly made the switch to shooting guard on Monday night and immediately went on the offensive.
Steadily blossoming in almost every area on the floor, Harkless is quickly becoming a Swiss Army knife of sorts for the Magic in that he can fill a variety of different roles – sometimes all in the same game.
Harkless, still just 20 years old, proved that he can hold his own at the shooting guard slot on Monday by aggressively seeking out shots and repeatedly getting to the rim in Orlando’s 102-94 defeat of the Dallas Mavericks.
