Brooklyn Nets security guard Joe Harris is reportedly 100 percent ready to go for their upcoming training camp.
According to Brian Lewis of the New York Post, Harris is on his way to training camp in good health after being limited to 14 games last season.
Harris had two procedures on his left ankle, the most recent taking place in March 2022.
“He’s doing great. He’s amazing,” Priority Sports founder Mark Bartelstein told The Post. “He’s 100 percent. He’s in a great spot.”
Bartelstein added that Harris has already participated in 5-on-5 contact drills, so he should be able to get started when Brooklyn opens camp.
They will certainly welcome him with open arms as shooting Harris will be the key if the Nets can unlock Ben Simmons.
With Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, Seth Curry and Harris all capable of dividing the floor at a high level, there is reason to be optimistic that this could be a really good match for Simmons.
At least on paper.
Joe Harris is a 43.9% career shooter from depth, but he’s been over 46% for two straight years and is still in his prime.
Harris, the longest-running Net, was a target of the Lakers this offseason, but there’s a reason Brooklyn wanted to hold onto the elite marksman. “I know he’s someone they appreciate at the highest level,” Bartelstein said. “There’s no doubt about that.”
