Joe Harris is a huge asset to Brooklyn. The sharpshooter shot 42% from deep last season, making him a reliable threat on the perimeter.
It’s shocking to see him sign for 4yr/$75m, as I did not think the Nets would spend that much for a spot-up shooting wing. He is a much-needed asset but $75m? It becomes questionable, but they are one step closer to opening their championship window.
Harris earned most of that money this past season as he had a career-high in points (14.5), and rebounds (4.3), shooting a healthy 48% from the field in 30.8 minutes a game.
Needless to say, Harris has found a solidified spot in the rotation for this Brooklyn team. With Durant and Irving back into the swing of things, Harris fits into the mold. I can’t help but make the JJ Redick comparison here as he excels running off the screen and moving without the basketball. There’s a reason why he’s seen more touches offensively. If you can shoot at a high clip in this league you will be valued.
The Nets made a great move, but might have overpayed on this one.
