November 27, 2017

Even when including a mere 6 point performance three games ago, Harris has averaged 21.8 fantasy points over his last five games, and 20.4 over his last nine. He may now further be buoyed if Allen Crabbe – who essentially plays the role of Designated Wing Shooter ahead of Harris – misses any more time due to injury. The risk of picking players so cheap is that they may put up extremely unimpactful nights like that 6 at any time. But Harris has done enough lately to assuage those anxieties, and is a value pick candidate.

Shooters are streaky, but Harris consistently gets rotation minutes for the Nets, and is averaging 9.6 points per game on the season in 21 minutes a contest. He is doing nothing other than score, and the vast majority of his scoring attempts are coming from three-point range. Nevertheless, Kenny Atkinson’s Nets exist to shoot threes, and few do it better than Harris (38.5% three-point shooting).

Joe Harris
SG/SF, 6’6, 219lbs, 25 years old, 3 years of experience

His best year, but not a good one. The three-point efficiency is there, but everything else isn't, and what three-point shooting there is is mostly off the catch. He is not doing the best work to get open off of screens, nor shooting well when he does. Roster spots and money may be better spent elsewhere even with the need and want for shooters.

Player Plan: Unguaranteed minimum salary for 2017/18, final year. Guarantee date is before the moratorium, thus essentially functioning as an option. Would waive and, if so desired, bring him back afterwards; he has not played well enough to be snapped up that quickly.

Hey!

Joe Harris, Virginia, Senior, 6'6 225lbs

2013/14 stats: 28.8 mpg, 12.0 ppg, 2.9 rpg, 2.3 apg, 0.9 spg, 0.2 bpg, 2.4 fpg, 1.3 TOpg, 44.1% FG, 40.0% 3PT, 64.0% FT

Aside from his free throw stroke, which disappeared last year for no apparent reason and which will probably come straight back, Harris is almost as good of a shooter as there can be. Be it off of screens or the catch and shoot, Harris is always a threat to shoot, especially in light of his very good size for the wing position. Combining very high IQ (that means he knows where to be on the floor) with a good motor off the ball (that gets him there) and a quick release (that makes it all worthwhile), Harris is a threat in the half court whether or not he ever touches it.

At times, Virginia asked Harris to be a primary creator, and the results were mixed. Harris has always been more of a shot maker than a creator, and he hasn't the handle to be a primary offensive focus or a man who plays a good amount on the ball. Not explosive nor effective in the paint, Harris is something of a straight line driver, not a good thing to say of a primary creator. Harris's shot creation, such that it is, comes from his effective use of shot fakes, pull-ups and step-back jumpers, not from getting into the paint and making plays. Not being especially athletic also affects his projection on the defensive end - despite good footwork and being just as smart on this end as the offensive one, Harris's sub-par foot speed could be exposable at the NBA level.

Nonetheless, with a good shooting stroke, a good basketball brain and the size to do something with it, Harris should get at least a couple of years tryout in the NBA. To stick, he will need to prove he can hold his own defensively, and be a little more selfish.
