The Nets are going to be heavily active in the free agent market this summer, and it looks like another top-of-the-list player wants Brooklyn to extend an offer.
Tobias Harris and the Nets reportedly have mutual interest in each other, per The Athletic's Michael Scotto.
Harris has bounced around the NBA during his eight-year career thus far. His most recent squad was the Sixers, who traded for him with the Clippers as they made a playoff run. Harris was solid in Philadelphia, averaging 18.2 points, 7.9 rebounds, and 2.9 assists per game while shooting 47 percent from the field. Overall last season, he averaged 20 points over 34.7 minutes per game.
Harris has proved to be successful at both forward positions. If he were to join the Nets, he could have his choosing at the three or four, with Taurean Prince -- the return in the Allen Crabbe trade that opened up another potential max slot -- and Rodions Kurucs at the positions respectively.
The Nets have also been linked to Kyrie Irving, who is "strongly considering" Brooklyn if he decides to leave Boston, per SNY's Ian Begley. That's looking to be the case with the dynamic point guard, but he'll have other teams vying for his talents next season including the crosstown rival Knicks.
Free agency begins on June 30, which is only a few weeks away. The Nets will continue to plan out their strategy, but it is always good to see some of the best options interested in joining a franchise that surprised many last season. Harris would be an excellent addition to the squad as a consistent scorer that stays on the floor year round.
