A sure thing for a (I will admit) young/talented player that's oft-injured with bad ankles and only played well for 20 games in his entire career. Not to mention he will be out of shape when he returns, eased into the rotation over a couple weeks decreasing overall court time, probably timid and less aggressive knowing he has a debilitating injury..

Hey thats fine, but its a risk I'll take. He's not really oft injured, this year is his only serious injury. He never got minutes before for the Bucks. Consider what is Orlando going to do when Harris gets healthy? Play older guys like Affalo and Glen Davis? Or play their 21 year old stud?
Last year I reaped the benefits of Harris and rode into 3rd last season. Even if he averages 15 and 5 he still impacts the game more than Gordon or Randolph or Booze.
He is on the verge of reuturning too and Harkless... well he's sucked so far. So you know he'll get his minutes.
I have patience and I'll wait for him. If injuries will are a concern then everybody would've been complaining when I traded Josh Smith for D Will. Its a risk I'll take for good players. I have patience when it comes to players that are not seriously injured (ie. Non knee injuries). I'll wait for Tobias like I did D Will.
However, understand that Marion has been struggling recently and Wilson Chandler is also in the deal. Wilson Chandler is a better player than Marion and over the past month he has proved it. He was injured to start the year, which is the reason for poor stats.
Chandler > Marion
Dragic > Harris
As it stands right now. Harris (who is set to return on Friday) can be just as good as Dragic, I'll take the risk on the potential. I could be wrong about Dragic, he is definitely playing well, looking at his career averages he is due to cool down. It's a sell high opportunity for me.
