The 29-year-old averaged 14.1 points, 3.6 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 0.7 steals in 31.0 minutes per game. The Virginia product scored 20-plus points 14 times, including a season-high 30 against the Wizards. During the Jan. 31 contest, Harris went 11-for-17 from the field and 8-for-13 from three. He also dished out five assists and grabbed one rebound during 32 minutes of action. In Game 1 of the second-round playoff series against the Bucks, the seventh-year shooter went 7-for-11 from the field and 5-for-9 from beyond the arc en route to 19 points. The 6-foot-6 guard grabbed five-plus rebounds 23 times, including a season-high nine on two occasions. The 2014 second-round pick distributed multiple assists 43 times, including a season-high six on three occasions. Defensively, the ex-Cavalier recorded at least one steal in 35 games, at least two steals in 12 games and notched three steals twice.

Harris appeared in and started 69 out of 72 possible games for the Nets during COVID19-shortened 2019-20 season -- his fourth year with the team. The 28-year-old set career highs in per-game points (14.5), rebounds (4.3) and threes (2.5). In terms of NBA ranks, the sharpshooter was 20th in made threes (172) and seventh in three-point percentage (42.4). For Brooklyn, he was first in minutes played (2,123) and three-pointers, plus second in total points (998). On Nov. 16, the shooting guard dished a career-high eight assists, plus added 22 points, during a win at Chicago. Arguably Harris' best overall performance of the season occurred Aug. 2, during the NBA restart, against the Wizards. During the eight-point win, Harris recorded a season-high 27 points (10-13 FG, 6-7 3Pt, 1-3 FT), seven rebounds, one assist and one block in 37 minutes. The performance was one of Harris' 13 games with at least 20 points, 10 games with at least five threes and 11 games with at least seven rebounds. During seeding games in the NBA bubble following the COVID-19 hiatus, Harris caught fire, averaging 20.0 points -- 62.0 FG%, 54.1 3Pt% -- 4.3 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 29.5 minutes per game. Appearing in two playoff games against the Raptors, the guard averaged 16.5 points, 10.0 rebounds, 1.0 assist and 3.5 triples in 36.0 minutes per post-season match. Harris scored in double figures in his final 15 appearances (regular season and playoffs).2018
Harris found himself in the NBA spotlight last season after outgunning Stephen Curry in the final round of the Three-Point Shootout during All-Star Weekend to claim victory in the prestigious contest. Though many viewed the outcome as an upset, Harris actually posted the superior three-point percentage overall in 2018-19. In fact, his 47.4 percentage from behind the arc led the NBA and was nearly two percentage points higher than the mark posted by Danny Green, who finished second. Harris' sharpshooting was part of an impressive campaign that saw him establish career highs in nearly every per-game offensive category, including points (13.7), three-pointers (2.4), rebounds (3.8) and assists (2.4). Harris also received the most playing time of his career, averaging 30.2 minutes per game, but his statistical growth was not merely a product of more minutes on the court. A glance at his advanced stats reveals that Harris was more efficient than ever last season, as his true-shooting percentage (64.5 percent) and effective field-goal percentage (62.2 percent) were both the highest marks of his career. Harris' durability and consistency were also key factors in his strong season. He finished the campaign ranked second on the club in total playing time, logging 2,293 minutes on the court. He also avoided prolonged slumps, averaging between 12.9 and 16.0 ppg while hitting at least 46.0 percent of his shots each month. Harris' averaged only 8.8 points per game on 37.2 percent shooting from the field in the Nets' first-round playoff exit, but that shouldn't detract from a breakout campaign during which he emerged as one of the league's best shooters.2017
Harris's fourth NBA season - and second in Brooklyn - saw the shooting guard appear in a career-high 78 games and average double-digit points per game for the first time. He'd go on to average 10.8 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 1.6 assists while playing 25.3 minutes per night. Harris scored a career-high 30 points while knocking down six-of-seven three-point tries and grabbing seven rebounds against Cleveland on Mar. 25. He recorded his first career double-double at home to Boston on Jan. 6 by pulling down a career-high 12 rebounds and scoring 10 points. Harris repeated the feat on Feb. 10 when he dropped 12 points and grabbed 10 boards versus New Orleans. He'd also count 21 points to go with seven rebounds in a win over Miami on Dec. 29. The Virginia product would set a new career-high with seven assists against Washington on Dec. 22. He lead the Nets with a .419 three-point percentage among qualified players. Harris went 5-for-5 from deep on his way to 19 points at Oklahoma City on Jan. 23. He then struck for 17 points, six assists and four rebounds against Milwaukee on Apr. 5.2016
After season-ending surgery in January of 2016, Joe Harris signed a two-year contract with the Brooklyn Nets in July. He looked sharp during the preseason and immediately became a key bench cog for the club. Harris played in the Nets' first 30 games of the 2016-17 season, averaging 24 minutes per contest. On Nov. 12, Harris exploded for a career-high 19 points - on 5-of-8 three-point shooting - during a win over the Suns. On Dec. 3, Harris drained three triples on his way to 17 points in a loss to the Bucks. Later that month, he matched his career-high of 19 points and went 5-of-9 from behind the arc during a close loss at Philadelphia. The good times kept rolling until a Jan. 20 ankle injury forced Harris to miss six games. He then appeared in 12 February matchups before a concussion suffered in early March versus Utah forced the guard to miss the last 22 games of the season. Despite the injuries, Harris played in a career-high 52 games for Brooklyn. He also generated per game career highs in points (8.2), rebounds (2.8), steals (0.6), made three-pointers (1.6) and minutes played (21.9). It seems Joe Harris has found a home in Brooklyn. His Nets would finish the season at 20-62 and miss the postseason.2015
Joe Harris had most of his professional sophomore season cut short due to injury. In October and November, he made appearances in five games for the Cavs. He also handled five stints on assignment with Cleveland's NBA D-League affiliate, the Canton Charge, seeing action in 10 games and averaging 16.4 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.6 assists in 33 minutes per contest. On Nov. 14, he scored a D-League career-high 31 points and grabbed nine rebounds in a loss to the Red Claws. On Jan. 12th, Harris underwent season-ending surgery on his right foot. The procedure, which occurred in Indianapolis, removed a bone particle from his foot. On the same day of the surgery, Harris was traded to the Orlando Magic along with a swap of draft picks. He was then released by the Magic shortly after the trade became official. Harris, who is focused on rehabbing his foot, enters the offseason as a free agent.2014
