      Mr 59th pick just became only the sixth rookie this year to score over 30 points. Not too shabby. Interesting note given the way some rooks are force fed minutes. He did it in the least minutes played in the game except for Theo Maledon(31min). Figured this thread could use a bump.
      Probably in the least minutes since they were drafted as well.

        I like what Ive seen from him these past few games. There should be a bench scoring role to explore with him if hes here next season.

          Hard to believe the FO would let him get away with what he's shown and the salary they can keep him at.

            I know there are a few caveats (small sample, games not affecting seeding, teammates he was playing with etc), but it looks he's got a level of positive risk-taking and aggressiveness that can translate well to bigger games and a bigger role, with success.

            His game contrasts well with Flynn's which is also good but more deliberate and calculated, looking to set up teammates and initiate spaces on the offence with the PnR (a classic PG); Harris's is a more explosive, lengthier, rim slasher, 3pt shots off side-steps within small spaces etc, often creating his own shot (a classic SG). Nice backcourt tandem.

            Let's hope he also receives adequate and stable minutes and the ability to play through mistakes without quick-hooks, so he can develop. If he has the chance to actually get into a rhythm vs nba caliber opposition (on both ends of the floor), I see a good player there. His overall attitude on both ends of the floor is conducive to making an impact.

            2019 NBA Champions. Glad to have doubted the doubters.

              I like what I have seen from Harris more so than from Flynn for long term. Harris reminds me of another Harris, Gary. His slight frame is of concern as he looks much smaller than his listed 6'5" out there. I hope this off season he works on making reads as a primary ball handler to help cut down his turnovers and adds some strength to increase his defensive effectiveness.

              If Trent is back as a the starter I like Harris and Bembry as the back-up rotation. Bembry is a little more capable of creating offense for others and can also play as a small forward.

                What is Jalen Harris' contract situation? I thought he was still on a 2-way, which would mean that we'd have to sign him to a regular contract in the off-season. If so, what do we think that contract looks like. Need to factor that into cap calculations now.

                  Yes, he'll need a contract. But he's RFA, will likely sign for the minimum, and his cap hold is literally zero coming off a two way.
