Player Profile: Joe Harris – The Talent
Getting drafted by a contender for the title is a double-edged sword. On the one hand, you get a unique opportunity to work on building a winning mentality. On the other hand, teams chasing the ring usually just don’t have the time to develop their young talent. The Cleveland Cavaliers certainly didn’t. On their road to the 2015 and 2016 finals, they decided to focus on adding proven veterans with a couple of elite NBA skills they could put to use in crunch time. For Joe Harris, a 6’6″ guard who the Cavaliers selected 33th overall in the 2014 draft, this was bad news. It was also the biggest reason he decided to try his luck in a less hostile environment.
