And while this deal is a slight overpay for a guard who can’t do much besides shoot, it’s a great deal for the Nets.
Harris’ shooting fills glaring holes on the team and the team performed noticeably better when he took to the court last year. The Nets were one of the worst three-point shooting teams in the league, despite taking the third highest amount of shots from that range. Because their offense relied so heavily on the three-ball having a player like Joe Harris on the team–career 40% shooter from three and 77.4% from the free throw line–helped the offense play more efficiently.
