Joe Harris re-signs with Brooklyn Nets
With Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving returning, the Nets made sure to retain one of the NBA's best floor-spacers.
From NBA Twitter and media reports
With Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving returning from injury, the Nets are making sure they are surrounded by 3-point shooting necessary to punish any extra defensive attention they might receive.
The reigning MTN DEW 3-Point Contest winner Joe Harris has agreed to re-sign with Brooklyn for a reported four years and $75 million, a move the Nets officially announced on Monday. The six-year veteran is coming off his third consecutive season shooting over 40% from 3-point range, including a league-leading 47.4% clip in 2018-19.

Harris is one of the many success stories that flourished during the Nets’ mid-2010s rebuild, arriving in Brooklyn via trade from Cleveland in 2016 for just a second-round pick. Since then, the former second-round pick has blossomed into a starting-quality swingman boasting one of the most important skills in the modern NBA game.
