Joe Harris’ efficiency is off the charts (Film Room)

Joe Harris is one of the best shooters in the NBA and the Brooklyn Nets marksman will open everyone’s eyes to his efficiency this year.

One of the most overlooked shooters in the NBA is currently tucked away on an under-the-radar team in Brooklyn. Richard Jefferson has taken to calling him Beef Jerky Joe. Whatever you want to call him, Joe Harris was a diamond in the rough in 2016 free agency. He’s a perfect fit for the Brooklyn Nets and Kenny Atkinson’s fast-paced system.

Harris is a sharpshooter who should be considered among the league’s best. So why isn’t he mentioned with the top three-point shooters in the league? In short, he needs to shoot more. But he’s playing a bigger role this year, so you can expect to see his production increase. Last season, Harris played 25.3 minutes while attempting 4.6 threes per contest. He’s upped his minutes to 29.5 and three-point attempts to 5.5 per game. It’s a step in the right direction. Despite the uptick in attempts, Harris is shooting 58.3 percent from behind the arc this season.
