The Nets have a heck of a roster heading into 2020-21. On paper, they should be one of the best teams in the Eastern conference. Today, as free agency began, they reportedly retained the services of a player with a very important jumpshot. Here’s the New York Post:
Nets general manager Sean Marks had called re-signing Joe Harris offseason priority No. 1. Mission accomplished.
Harris agreed to a four-year, $75 million contract to stay in Brooklyn on Friday, the very first night of free agency. The deal was first reported by ESPN, confirmed by The Post and celebrated by Nets owner Joe Tsai in a humorous tweet that included former presidential candidate — and Nets fan — Andrew Yang…
An unrestricted free agent, Harris had steadfastly expressed a desire to stay in Brooklyn, where he had developed from a waiver-wire pickup to an NBA 3-point shooting champion. The idea of contending for a championship this season with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving returning from injury made him want to come back even more.
