Joe Harris Made a Home in Brooklyn.
The Nets declined Garret Temple’s option for this upcoming season making room to keep Harris. With Temple’s option being declined Harris was more than likely to re-sign with the Nets and stay in Brooklyn.

The Brooklyn Nets are a force to reckoned with this year. Durant and Kyrie along with the players Brooklyn has surrounded them with have thrust them right into title contention. However, chemistry is always a key with new teams and especially since Durant didn’t play last year at all it is interesting to see how they mesh with Harris and the Nets.
