I agree....I'm not equating him to Franklin on Siena...but Franklin isn't a prototypical 4 man either. He's roughly about as big as Harris. Harris isn't a slouch in the athleticism dept. what he lacks in height, he can make up with his speed, strength and athleticism against taller but slower 4's.
The difference with Franklin is he plays as a post player. Harris never has, Franklin can take on bigger guys on the block and be successful while Harris will struggle because he doesn't have the post presence, at least that I've seen over the past 2 seasons. He's more of a G/SF than a Power Forward. Just cause he's big a bulky doesn't make him effective on the block.
Will Browns talking about using the motion offense most likely with 4 on the outside and 1 in and maybe even with 5 on the outside. His decision to move Will Harris to the 4 doesnt get him stuck on the block. Its a move to get another ball handler/shooter on the floor instead of having only 4 people out there on offense now well have 5(giffords dead wood). Harris is most effective when he attacks the basket, and at the 4 hell have a better shot of doing that, because hell get more touches inside the arc instead of behind it where he seems to be only one dimensional. Hes a versatile player, and we need to get more production out of him, and i think this move should help that.
