Nets SG Joe Harris' sharp-shooting will be put to the test during All-Star Weekend, as he will represent Brooklyn in the MTN DEW 3-Point Contest on Feb. 16.
The contest expands to 10 players this year, and Harris will be going up against some of the best pure shooters in the game. Here is the field:

- Warriors PG Stephen Curry
- Mavericks F Dirk Nowitzki
- Trail Blazers PG Damian Lillard
- Bucks SG Khris Middleton
- Hornets PG Kemba Walker
- Kings SG Buddy Hield

Harris is having a career year from beyond the arc, owning a 45.3 field goal percentage from deep. He is also averaging 13.3 points per game, 2.5 assists, and 3.7 rebounds -- all career highs.
It will be a tough competition for Harris, who sits fourth in the NBA in 3-point field goal percentage. Seth Curry owns the highest percentage in the field (.485), while Hield (45.9) and Stephen Curry (45.1) are also top 5.
