Joe Harris wants to return to Brooklyn and the Nets have made it clear that he is their top priority in the offseason, but he’s expected to have plenty of suitors.
Harris said back in February that his preference was to re-sign with the Nets in order to play with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, and has steadfastly maintained the same position up until now. Brooklyn has already committed $132 million to a dozen players for next season, not including Harris or a $5 million team option on Garrett Temple. Ex-Nets assistant GM Bobby Marks recently mentioned that if Harris got a starting salary of $12.2 million, the Nets could face a $50 million luxury tax. The Knicks, the Hawks, the Hornets and the Wolves could try to lure away the talented sharpshooter, while there have been rumors of Harris sign-and-trades, with capped-out teams like the Sixers or the Warriors. One things is for sure, Harris should maintain a similar role going forward whether he re-signs with the Nets or not.
