The Brooklyn Nets are going to have a ton of cap space to sign free agents this summer, and a born-and-raised New Yorker may be on their radar. According to Michael Scotto of The Athletic, the Nets and Tobias Harris have a ‘mutual interest’ in each other in free agency.
Harris, who was born in Islip, N.Y., split the 2018-19 campaign between the Los Angeles Clippers and Philadelphia 76ers. He played in all 82 games and averaged 20 points, 7.9 rebounds and 2.8 assists over 34.7 minutes per game while shooting 48.7 percent from the floor, 39.7 percent from 3-point range and 86.6 percent from the free-throw line.
The 26-year-old began the year with the Clippers, but was dealt to the Sixers at the trade deadline.
Harris played his collegiate basketball at the University of Tennessee and was originally selected by the Charlotte Bobcats in the first round (19th pick overall) of the 2011 NBA Draft.
