Nets agree to huge four-year deal with Joe Harris

The Brooklyn Nets have been open about their desire to re-sign sharpshooting shooting guard Joe Harris in free agency. While they wanted to re-sign him, there were plenty of other teams with interest in him. Despite all of the interest from around the league, the Nets have re-signed Harris.

According to a report from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Nets have agreed to a huge four-year, $75 million contract to keep Harris in Brooklyn.

Harris getting paid that kind of money shows what kind of market we are seeing in free agency this year. He is a good player, but $75 million might be a bit of an overpay. But, the Nets know how much they will need perimeter shooting around Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.

When it comes to three-point shooting, there are very few in the NBA better than Harris.

During the 2019-20 NBA season, Harris put together a big-time season. He ended the season averaging 14.5 points per game to go along with 4.3 rebounds and 2.1 assists. Harris shot 48.6 percent from the floor and knocked down 42.4 percent of his three-point attempts.

At 29 years old, Harris has to be pumped to get this kind of a payday. He will also have a chance to compete for a championship with Durant and Irving leading the way. This contract could come into play if the Nets make a push to acquire James Harden from the Houston Rockets.

No matter what ends up happening in the future, both the Nets and Joe Harris are happy to get this deal done. Both sides wanted to remain together if the opportunity was right.

Expect to see the Nets continue to scour the free agent market. They want to build the best roster possible and will be all-in for the 2020-21 season.
