The Nets pride themselves on their player development, and Spencer Dinwiddie is the most talked-about example. But if therea€™s a player who encapsulates their whole blue-collar ethos, ita€™s Joe Harris.

a€œJoe really epitomizes what wea€™re all about here, and the hard work hea€™s put in,a€ said Nets general manager Sean Marks, who has hoarded 2019 cap space, but had no problem cutting into it to retain Harris with a two-year, $16 million deal.

a€œI remember seeing him the day after he had signed the deal and he was walking across the parking lot, baseball cap on, earphones in and high-fiving workers. And thata€™s Joe: Thata€™s who he is. I was very proud witnessing that. I was in the car driving by and I [thought] we made the right decision.a€

The Virginia grad has become a real Brooklynite. He has ditched his car, walks to Barclays Center for games, and takes an Uber or the subway to HSS Training Center for practice.
