Biography: Harris was a three-year starter at Michigan, averaging 18.1 points, 6.0 rebounds and 4.1 assists as a junior before deciding to enter the draft. He led the Wolverines to the NCAA tournament in 2009, their first appearance since 1998, but they were ousted in the second round and went on to have a disappointing season in 2009-10. Harris, though, put together another solid performance as his game continued to mature. He showed consistency by scoring in double figures in 29 of 31 games. The quick guard lowered his turnovers substantially as a junior, averaging 2.8 after averaging 3.1 the previous season and 3.6 as a freshman, although he needs to continue to improve in that area. The biggest concern for Harris may be his size, as his game revolves around penetration and getting to the basket and drawing contact. He averaged 6.0 free throws during his college career, but the more physical play of the NBA could wear him down due to his lack of bulk. He is not a great shooter and averaged a career-low 30.8 percent from 3-point range last season. Despite that shortcoming, he is a well-rounded player who is a solid defender and aggressive on the glass, averaging 6.0 rebounds last season and 5.7 for his career. There are some questions about Harris' maturity level after he was briefly suspended this season for unsportsmanlike conduct in practice. He also needs to improve his decision making with the ball, which could happen with experience. He seems likely to be drafted in the second round if he is taken.
