Mulling NBA opportunities

September 16, 2019
Harris said he's considering "several NBA options" for the 2019-20 season, the Dallas Morning News reports.
Interestingly, Dallas is not one of the teams showing interest in Harris, and at this point it's unclear if the 36-year-old will return to the league next season. Harris noted that he's "enjoying fatherhood," and he said he'll only return if "the right opportunity" arises. The Wisconsin product appeared in 68 games for the Mavs last season, averaging 6.3 points and 1.8 assists in just under 16 minutes per contest.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Harris split the 2017-18 season between the Mavericks and the Nuggets, as he was dealt Denver at the trade deadline. However, his numbers were nearly identical between the two teams and in 71 combined games, Harris posted averages of 8.4 points, 2.1 assists, 1.8 rebounds and 1.1 three-pointers across 18.9 minutes. That kept him off the radar in nearly all Fantasy formats, which shouldn't change heading into his 15th NBA season. Harris opted to return to the Mavericks despite the mid-year trade, but now faces just as much, if not more, competition for minutes. Dennis Smith and J.J. Barea are back and likely sit atop the depth chart at point guard, while the Mavericks also drafted guard Jalen Brunson with the 33rd overall pick in the draft. Luka Doncic will also get minutes in the backcourt, so Harris' major contributions will likely come as a mentor to some of the younger players on the roster.
Harris failed to make a huge impact with the Mavericks during the 2016-17 campaign, even with both Deron Williams and J.J. Barea dealing with injuries. Instead, he was passed up on the point guard depth chart by undrafted rookie Yogi Ferrell, while Seth Curry also took reps ahead of him as well. Harris ended up playing just 16.7 minutes per game, his lowest average since his rookie season, while compiling 6.7 points, 2.0 rebounds and 2.1 assists. He also shot just 39.9 percent from the field and 32.8 percent from deep. With Barea, Ferrell and Curry all back, as well as first-round draft pick Dennis Smith joining the team as the likely starter, Harris is only slated to see spot minutes as a deep reserve in the backcourt during the upcoming campaign. That will severely limit his ability to see the court, thus rendering him useless in the majority of Fantasy leagues
Harris regressed to a full-time reserve role in 2015-16, failing to start a single game for only the second time in his career. The veteran battled through a nagging toe injury to appear in 64 contests and averaged 7.6 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 20.0 minutes per game. Harris, who will turn 34 in February, will again serve as a reserve guard this season, capable of filling in at either backcourt spot. Given the offseason addition of Seth Curry, Harris' role is unlikely to increase, and at this point in his career, it appears his days as a productive fantasy commodity are behind him.
The 32-year-old guard bounced back from an injury-plagued 2013-14 season to play in 76 games for the Mavericks last season. Harris averaged 22 minutes per game and finished the year averaging 8.8 points, 3.1 assists, and 1.8 rebounds. His shooting was much improved from the year before as he shot 42 percent from the field and 36 percent from three-point range. Once an All-Star point guard, Harris has entered the next phase of his career as a reserve. Even when injuries occurred, Harris remained in the second unit and has collected just three starts over the past two years. His speed and size allow him to play both guard positions, providing coach Rick Carlisle some much needed versatility. Harris may be counted on even more this season as Dallas' backcourt depth is somewhat lacking. If he sees a modest uptick in minutes, Harris could easily improve on last year's totals, but keep in mind, he hasn't averaged double-digit points since the 2011-12 season.
Devin Harris is entering his 11th season in the NBA. Harris started his second stint in Dallas last year, where he averaged 7.9 points, 2.1 rebounds, 4.5 assists, 0.7 steals, and 0.1 blocks in 20 minutes per game. He played in just 40 games because preseason toe surgery cost him the first half of the season. He shot 38 percent from the field on 6.4 attempts per game and 80 percent from the free-throw line on 2.9 attempts per game. Harris never established a rhythm after returning to the lineup, as his shooting percentage was a career-low, and his points per game finished as his lowest total since his rookie campaign. However, he did show flashes during the postseason, averaging 11.4 points on 47 percent shooting in seven games against the Spurs. Harris had a quiet offseason and should be remarkably healthier entering the season. Dallas added veterans Jameer Nelson and Raymond Felton in the offseason, but the starting job remains up for grabs. Harris may be the most logical option, but coach Rick Carlisle has previously stated he likes the speedy guard leading the second unit. Even if he ends up coming off the bench, the minutes will still be there, and Harris should be in line for a bounce-back season.
Harris returns to Dallas after being traded from the team in 2008. His role will change during his second stint, as the team will bring him off the bench at both guard spots. He underwent surgery in the offseason on a troublesome toe and could miss up to the first two months of the season. Harris has been in a steady decline since his All-Star campaign in 2009 and will be hard-pressed to return to those levels.
Harris had a disappointing season for the Utah Jazz last year as he finished with averages of 11.3 points, 5.0 assists and 1.2 three-pointers per game. He is expected to play alongside Teague in the backcourt at times and could even find himself as the starting shooting guard once the season begins. If he does earn a starting role, he has the potential to provide fantasy owners with decent value. However, he may not generate significant fantasy value if he finds himself coming off of the bench and playing limited minutes.
Harris produced typically solid numbers after joining the Jazz at the trade deadline, scoring just under 16 points per game in 31.2 mpg for Utah. But there were two major red flags. First off, he lived up to his “fragile” reputation, missing a string of seven late March/early April games with a hamstring injury, and most of his other stats – most notably assists per game – dropped post-trade. Many expected the Jazz to select a point guard of the future in June, but instead, they used their two lottery picks on forward/center Enes Kanter and off guard Alec Burks; that probably means Harris will go into this season as Utah’s primary ball-handler.
Harris – and the Nets in general – endured a god-awful season in 2009-10. Concerns about his durability were front and center once again; a groin injury sidelined Harris for much of the season's first month as the Nets were in the midst of a record-setting losing streak to start the year. Things didn't improve much from there. The team spent much of 2009-10 in danger of tying the 1973 Sixers for the worst record in league history, and Harris was limited to 64 games due to a variety of injuries, shifting his status from "part of the rebuilding plan" to "make us an offer." He finished the season with solid but unspectacular numbers: 16.9 points, 6.6 assists, 1.2 steals, .403 shooting from the field. The Nets should be much-improved this season with the addition of Troy Murphy and rookie Derrick Favors, the maturation of Brook Lopez and Terrence Williams and a much deeper roster overall, but Harris will continue to be a fantasy question mark until he proves he can play more than 65 games a year.
Harris exceeded all expectations last season, racking up career-bests in scoring (21.3 ppg), assists (6.9 apg) and steals (1.7 spg) and tying his high-water mark in boards (3.3 rpg) as the lead guard in Lawrence Frank’s version of the dribble-drive motion offense. Still, concerns about his durability – and the general state of the New Jersey franchise – keep Harris out of the top tier of point guards. Harris has played in 70-plus games just twice in his five-year career, and that was as a Dallas sub when he wasn’t logging heavy minutes. He played in 69 games last season, missing time due to assorted ankle, rib and shoulder injuries. That questionable durability becomes a bigger concern now that he’ll have to carry even more of a load for the Nets, with Vince Carter departing for Orlando this offseason. Carter’s departure could mean a boost to Harris’ overall value – with Carter gone, Harris is really the Nets’ sole perimeter threat, in a system that generates most of its offense off of dribble penetration. But it remains to be seen how well he’ll hold up to the added work load and increased defensive attention.
The Nets have reshaped their roster since the beginning of the 2007-08 season, with Harris replacing Jason Kidd at the point being one of the biggest changes. How this team meshes after the arrival of Bobby Simmons, Yi Jianlian, Eduardo Najera and first-round pick Brook Lopez will have an big impact on Harris’ value. He’s still largely inexperienced at running a team, having been a part-time player for the Mavericks, but has all the skills to be a good point guard. He’s not a great shooter, but can penetrate and gets to the line (4.7 FTA/game in 31.5 mpg). He averaged 6.5 assists per game for the Nets after coming over from Dallas, but was bothered by an ankle injury during the final months. Thankfully, he’ll have Vince Carter, who finally looked healthy toward the end of the season. The Nets will need another threat or two on offense to emerge from the group of newcomers to enhance Harris’ value, but this could be a breakout year for him.
There’s no doubt Harris has some offensive skill (10.2 ppg, 49.2% FG), but his ability to be a full-time point guard is still a question. He averaged just 3.7 assists per game last season, which looks even worse next to his 1.8 turnovers per game. The Mavericks would like to move Jason Terry to off-guard full time, but there’s still a need for him see action at the point because Harris hasn’t taken control of the job. Don’t look to Harris for three-point shooting. He attempted just 50 from beyond the arc.
The training wheels come off for Harris this year, as the team expects him to meet his prodigious potential and take hold of the Mavs' starting point guard spot. While Harris showed flashes of brilliance in the playoffs, he also disappeared for large stretches of time as well. Harris may be a nice late-round speculative fantasy pick, but don't start him until he becomes more consistent.
A gifted athlete, Harris is the Mavs' point guard of the future. He started the first 19 games last season and played well, but ultimately couldn't handle the duties of the floor leader, succumbing to Terry. Harris, like Daniels, is still learning the NBA game, but he has some upside given that he is more athletic and a better defender then Terry.
Has size, speed, quickness, explosiveness and a sweet shooting touch. Right now is more of a scoring point guard but scouts believe he has good court vision. Some doubt his ability as a point guard because he's such a scorer. Could stand to gain about 10 - 15 pounds.
