Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle: 'I did not bench Parsons'
|(3/19/15) Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle denied benching forward Chandler Parsons late in the fourth quarter of Wednesday's win, explaining he wanted to go with a quicker lineup, according to ESPN Dallas.|
With under six minutes remaining in a tight game, Magic forward Maurice Harkless beat Parsons for a baseline dunk. Carlisle then put forward Al-Farouq Aminu into the game and Parsons sat for virtually the final 5:26.
"I just wanted a quicker guy in there," Carlisle said. "With Aminu, you get some more options. Parsons didn't have a great night, but it happens. You're not going to get 30 points every night and sometimes your teammates got to pick you up. We had other guys step up."
"A little surprised [by Carlisle's decision], but not really," Parsons said. "We have a lot of players that can do different things. Any given night it can be someone different. The best thing is we won the game."
Parsons entered the game red hot, averaging 23.7 points over his previous three contests.
Magic trying to deal Moe Harkless
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(2/17/15) The Magic are looking to unload SF Moe Harkless before Thursday's NBA trade deadline.
According to a report by USA Today's Jeff Zillgitt, the Magic are willing to deal Harkless for "minimal return".
Harkless is averaging 3.4 points in 13.8 minutes for the Magic this season. His scoring and playing time have fallen steadily since he averaged 8.2 points in 26 minutes as a rookie.
Magic to make Harkless, Nicholson inactive for Wednesday's game
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(1/21/15) The Magic will list Maurice Harkless and Andrew Nicholson as inactive for Wednesday's game against the Pistons, according to the team's website.
Nicholson has already missed the past four games, so the news shouldn't come as a surprise for him. Harkless had been seeing time with Tobias Harris sidelined, but will not play now that Harris is ready to return.
Vaughn preparing Magic SF Harkless for all roles
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(12/18/14) Magic small forward Maurice Harkless has played 25 minutes in the last two games combined. That might not seem like much until one considers he was a DNP in eight of the previous nine.
Harkless was just 1 of 3 from the field in the two recent efforts, but that will not prevent him from earning more extended playing time, according to Jacque Vaughn.
Vaughn said he has talked to Harkless in conversations "geared towards accepting your responsibility of your profession," per the Orlando Sentinel. "This is what you signed up for, and there's no guarantee there's minutes for you. You earn those minutes. You produce those minutes.
"And when you're not in the rotaion, there's still a responsibility that you have to have: of having yourself ready, whether that's extra running, whether that's extra film work, whether that's having the mindset that, 'I'm a backup quarterback and the starter could go down on one play and I need to be prepared just as if I was the starter."
Magic F Maurice Harkless gets his first action of the season
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(11/2/14) Magic forward Maurice Harkless, who started 41 games last season but didn't play in the first two, finally saw his first action of the season during Saturday's 108-95 defeat to the Raptors.
Harkless scored seven points on 3 of 6 shooting from the field, including 1 of 3 from downtown. He added five rebounds, two assists, one steal and one rebound while logging 22 minutes of game action.
|Maurice Harkless found his three-point shot, but that was about all that went right for him in his second year in the league. Harkless appeared in four more games as a sophomore, but actually ended up playing fewer minutes than he did as a rookie overall. As a result, his scoring average fell to 7.4 per game, while he added just 3.3 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.6 blocks per game. Though Harkless is just 21, the Magic already seem eager to move away from him, as they drafted Aaron Gordon No. 4 overall this offseason, likely moving Harkless to a reserve role full time. Harkless has some potential, but is unlikely to live up to it in his expected role, and can be left off your board outside of deeper category-based Fantasy formats.
