Due to injuries and not one but two surgeries, Harris only played in 14 games and was gone when his crew needed him most.
However, reports say that he will be ready to go when the new season starts and is supposedly “100 percent” and prepared to play and make up for lost time.
Ya'll realize Joe Harris shot 47.5% from the three-point range in 2021 … Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving could have Ben Simmons doing the dirty work (rebounding, defense etc.) and Seth Curry and Joe Harris spotting up from beyond the arc.
Durant and Irving can't blow this …..

The idea of Harris coming back to the Nets is very attractive to Nets fans.
Ben Stinar points out something very impressive about Harris, his shooting abilities, and how he could greatly assist the team’s lineup.
“Ya’ll realize Joe Harris shot 47.5% from the three-point range in 2021,” Stinar said.
Harris warned: “Durant and Irving can’t blow this.”
One point is true: Harris returning could make this team so much better from beyond the arc.
But Harris is wrong about another thing: Durant and Irving can blow this – and they might.
Harris is a massive help to his team, especially when he gets a hot hand and seems like he can’t miss.
But just because he and Curry can shoot, Simmons can rebound, and Durant and Irving can facilitate doesn’t mean the team will find success.
This lineup hasn’t played together and it will take time for them to find their rhythm as a unit.
Additionally, they are entering an incredibly tough Eastern Conference with the fierce Boston Celtics, hungry Philadelphia 76ers, proven Miami Heat and Milwaukee Bucks, along with up-and-coming Cleveland Cavaliers, and others.
The Nets have a good roster ready to play but their chances can still be blown.
