Orlando Magic forward Moe Harkless played small forward all of last season, but with the Magic gathering talent in the offseason he told Alex Kennedy of Hoopsworld.com that he will see playing time at the shooting guard position next year.

It’s good to see that Harkless has more confidence in his shot and has been working on his range—he shot just 27.4 percent from three last season. While the 6’9, 210 pound Harkless is a prototypical small forward, he is athletic enough to play the two-guard spot if not for his inconsistent shooting stroke.

The Magic added guard Victor Oladipo with the No. 2 pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, and they already have Tobias Harris and Glen Davis, who can both play either forward spot. Arron Afflalo, the team’s leading scorer from last year, also plays the shooting guard position. If Harkless does show considerable improvement with his range, he could allow the Magic to shuffle their positions around even further and play him at the two spot.
