This move was obvious for the Nets as they needed Joe Harris’ elite three-point shooting for their championship push. In four seasons with the Nets, Harris has shot 43% from three, which includes a league-high 47.4% during the 2018-19 season. Harris won the Three-Point Contest at All-Star Weekend that season as well.
Re-signing Joe Harris strengthens the Nets’ already formidable shooting core. Harris paired alongside Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and new Net Landry Shamet is a plethora of shooting for next season’s Nets team. Brooklyn has a chance to be one of the most dynamic offensive teams of all time with Harris returning.
While Joe Harris’ new contract may look shocking to some at first glance, he is without a doubt deserving of it. Ever since the Nets signed him to a minimum contract in 2016, he has improved immensely every single year. Most fans already know how good of a shooter Harris is, but he has really strengthened his overall offensive game. His driving capabilities often bewilder opposing teams because they often don’t expect it.
It is not an understatement to say that Harris is one of the greatest three-point shooters in team history. He is up there with Nets greats such as Drazen Petrovic, Joe Johnson, and Keith Van Horn when it comes to shooting. Joe Harris’ loyalty and passion for the Nets is clear and fans appreciate it. Brooklyn gave him a shot in this league when no one else did, and he took full advantage of it. Nets fans everywhere are jumping for joy with this news.
