Joe Harris is an unrestricted free agent, but he is expected to remain with the Brooklyn Nets long term.

As Ian Begley of SNY reports, Harris is expected to sign a new, multi-year deal with Brooklyn when free agency opens on Friday, November 20.

“SNY sources confirm multiple reports that stated Hawks are among many teams that will have interest in Joe Harris, one of the top shooters in the NBA. The Hornets are on that list, too, per sources.

Even with that strong interest from the Hawks and Hornets, teams monitoring Harris’ free agency firmly believe he will re-sign with Brooklyn on a multi-year deal.

Two executives pegged the market for Harris at between $16-20 million per year. Teams with interest in Harris expect that he’ll end up with a full four-year commitment from Brooklyn.

If things change and Harris’ market is lower than expected, the Knicks will have interest as well. But that’s unlikely,” Begley reports.

The Nets are expected to be title contenders next season, with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving healthy and back to the lineup.
