Free agency: Veteran bench guards the Rockets should sign
Once the centerpiece of some jokes thanks to his time in Cleveland, Joe Harris had an underrated season in Brooklyn last year for the lowly Nets.
He may be on the edge of being a veteran as he enters into his fifth season in the league, but he played four years at Virginia and G League times as well. Harris was great for the Nets last year, though, averaging 10.8 points per game on a very solid 42% shooting from deep.
His efficiency could pair nicely with the playmakers that the Rockets have in Houston. Harris could spot up and do some serious damage to opposing benches.
Similarly to Tyreke Evans, Joe Harris may be looking for a bit of a payday. He will be 27 when the NBA season starts and just had his best season yet. Will he want some of the sweet free agency money as he wants to get paid for the first time in his career? Or will he want to help the Rockets bring home a ring?
He’s barely a veteran, but Joe Harris has still played quite a bit of high-level basketball. He could be a great addition off the bench if he’s willing to take less than he may deserve.
