Magic Not Looking to Rush Harkless
Harkless, just 19 years old, did not appear in a preseason game as he recovered from off-season surgery to repair a sports hernia. He has practiced in full-contact drills for a week, but Vaughn wants Harkless to be completely comfortable before he plays in a game.
“The whole goal is for him to find success — that’s how I look at it — and to have a comfortable atmosphere,” Vaughn said. “I’m going to stay with that approach. I plan on being with Moe Harkless a long time, so I want him to do well.”
