Yeah Harris has some shake off the dribble, moves well off ball, good decision maker and also pretty good finisher at the rim. Not just some standstill C&S guy. Would fit really well here.

More than one way to skin a cat and I do think we could stand to have one rotation-worthy guy who is a really really good catch and shoot jumpshooter and I don't think he'd have to do much else to be useful.

If Joe Harris is the Big Move, though, I'm not impressed.

I hope the interest in Bogdan and/or Harris isn’t based around being compliments to Bledsoe in the back court. 1 hides on offense, 1 hides on defense and they each overcompensate to make up for the other.

Not saying I wouldn’t take a better shooter. I’m saying we need more than one better shooter.

If we had a starting point guard who just defended and hit catch and shoot threes we might have a title.

Yeah if we had that guy last year vs Toronto.

Now we need someone who can play ball screens effectively or we gonna run into the same issue that we have no reliable decision makers with the ball to play through when it matters.

I don't love Harris, but he is that flamethrower type shooter posters here long for. He'll fly off screens and make teams pay for not hedging. He is the caliber shooter people here pretend Bogdan is, but isn't.

Eric Nehm apparently reporting that we are targeting Crowder and Joe Harris with MLE. Is MLE enough to land Harris? Does their interest in Crowder mean that Wes isnt picking up his option?

I highly doubt the MLE is enough for Harris. Crowder makes sense IMO though his shooting will almost certainly regress significantly.

I liked the mentions of Josh Jackson and Iwundu as BAE targets as well.

Is Justin Jackson a terrible defender? Honestly don’t know. Seems like he could a buy (really) low reclamation project at swing forward.

Person? Yes. Defender? No, he's OK there.

Would we go after both Harris and bogdan? Would Harris be fine coming off the bench? That would be pretty sweet to replenish our wings with that kind of shooting.

And why exactly is Justin Jackson a “terrible person” ?

Deleted post because apparently I can't read. Justin is a good dude, opposite player than Josh Jackson.

Edited because I can't read. Justin is pretty much the opposite of Josh Jackson.

Machu mentions Josh Jackson, he's a bad dude. Justin is a great dude, maybe a little too nice on the basketball floor.

So, which one are the Bucks reportedly interested in?

Im just happy to see the Bucks arent content going into next season w/ a wing rotation that relies significantly on Wes Matthews, DDV, Kyle Korver, and Pat C. Thats the stuff of nightmares right there.

I also didnt realize the Nets were at $135-$140m in salary. Maybe Harris doesnt return if theyre too strapped for cash.

Say we get lucky and get Harris on the MLE. Are we left with filling out the roster on vet minimums?

Who might be some good targets that take the min if that’s the case?

Well, we'd also have the Bledsoe deal, our 1st round pick, and the BAE.

The big question to me is, will ownership be willing to throw cash in to a deal, for a pick?
