Nets To Retain Sean Kilpatrick, Joe Harris

The Nets will hang onto Sean Kilpatrick and Joe Harris, allowing their 2017/18 salaries to become fully guaranteed, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical (via Twitter). Both players are on minimum salary deals and will earn $1,524,305 next season.

Although Wojnarowski classifies the Nets as having picked up team options on Kilpatrick and Harris, there are no formal options for the club to exercise. Instead, Brooklyn simply has to keep the duo on its roster, since both contracts call for their 2017/18 salaries to become guaranteed if they’re not waived by June 30.

Kilpatrick, 27, has enjoyed an increased role since joining the Nets in February 2016. In his first full season with the team, the 6’4″ guard averaged 13.1 PPG and 4.0 RPG, with a shooting line of .415/.341/.843.

Harris, another shooting guard, also had a career year in 2016/17, averaging 8.2 PPG and 2.8 RPG with a .425/.385/.714 shooting line in 52 games (11 starts) for Brooklyn.

Kilpatrick and Harris will both be eligible for unrestricted free agency in the summer of 2018.
