BROOKLYN NETS TO SIGN JOE HARRIS TO TWO-YEAR DEAL

Joe Harris, a 2014 second round pick by the Cavaliers who's recovering from foot surgery, has agreed to sign with the Nets. When Harris signs, he'll be the 13th player with a guaranteed contract.

Adrian Wojnarowski broke the news of the signing...

And Mike Scotto had details on the contract...

Sam Amico tweeted Thursday that the deal is non-guaranteed.

Harris, 24, is a 6'6" shooting guard out of Virginia. Harris led the Cavaliers to their first outright ACC regular season title since 1981, their first ACC tournament title since 1976, and their first Sweet Sixteen appearance since 1995. Harris subsequently earned ACC Tournament MVP honors, and was named to the All-Tournament team and All-ACC third team. At Virginia, Harris mostly came off screens, but in his year and a half in Cleveland, he spent more time and garnered more success shooting off the dribble.

In his rookie years, he played limited minutes in 51 games, hitting 37 percent from three.  Last year, he played only five games with the Cavaliers and 10 games with the Canton Charge, the Cavs' D-League club.  He averaged 16.4 points and shot nearly 40 percent from deep.

Harris was traded to the Magic in January and immediately waived, a week after he underwent surgery for a broken foot.

Harris worked with both Nets assistant Mike Batisite, then an assistant with the Charge, and Nets assistant GM Trajan Langdon, who worked in player development with Cleveland.
