Every year as the trade deadline approaches, McDermott donates a pile of clothes to Goodwill — mostly to limit what he has to pack if he gets traded again. The deals started at the 2014 draft, when the Bulls — in win-now mode under Tom Thibodeau — flipped two first-round picks for McDermott. McDermott played just 321 minutes as a rookie, and watched as the players selected with Chicago’s traded picks — Gary Harris and Jusuf Nurkic — outperformed him. “I took the trade on the court with me,” McDermott said. “I felt pressure. But you learn quickly Thibs doesn’t play rookies.”
There are two questions worth asking about Gary Harris right now. Both are critical for the Denver Nuggets, and their climb towards the NBA title: “What happened?” and “What if he turns it around?” Two years ago, when Harris was 23, only two players his age averaged more than his 17.5 points per game: Joel Embiid and Giannis Antetokounmpo. The bubbling optimism that surrounded Denver’s young core was amplified by Harris’ breakout campaign, how he so perfectly complemented Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray in a league increasingly infatuated with athletic three-point shooters who could not be bullied on the other end.
Development is not linear and there are myriad ways to describe any one player’s unforeseeable stagnation, but the reality is Harris went from doubling as an integral present-day contributor and precious trade asset, to a big reason why his team can’t scratch the ceiling they otherwise could. The past few weeks have been a particularly dark nadir. In his last 20 games, Harris is averaging 8.7 points, shooting 35.2 percent from the floor and 23.9 percent behind the three-point line. Over his last 15, the Nuggets have been outscored by three points with Harris on the court.
This naturally leads us to wonder how the Nuggets would look if Harris returns to his old form and makes defeating the Nuggets four times in seven tries the Himalayan hike it should be. Harris averaging, say, 20 points per game — one-third of of them thanks to 40 percent shooting beyond the arc — and then paring it with elite on-ball defense, would help slice the margins that currently sit between Denver and the LA teams. Their offense would sparkle more vividly than it currently can in tight spots — meaningful, considering the Nuggets already have the sixth-highest offensive rating in the league.

Gary Harris on the block

The Nuggets and Heat are among the teams registering interest in Jrue Holiday, though the Pelicans are not biting … yet. Denver has made Gary Harris very available, and would part with Malik Beasley, too. Just don’t ask for Michael Porter Jr., who has emerged as the sweet scoring forward many thought he would be before the back injury scared everyone away. New Orleans’s decision on Holiday will be interesting.

Nuggets standing pat?

And what seems even more clear as Jokic wades deep into his third season of playing alongside Jamal Murray, Gary Harris, Will Barton and Paul Millsap is that any move shaking up Denver’s starters appears increasingly unlikely — and unwarranted. In conversations with numerous people around the team, there has been a strong sense of optimism about where Denver sits. No one thinks this team has hit its stride just yet. But Jokic has returned to MVP candidate form, players like Harris are finding their footing, and shots have largely begun to fall.

After being represented by Johnny Foster of JSF Sports since his time back in Australia, Craig told Mile High Sports that he has elected to sign with the Creative Artists Agency where he will be represented by multiple agents who work for CAA, which is the same agency that represents Gary Harris as well as the likes of Chris Paul, Joel Embiid, Devin Booker, Paul George, and many other high-profile NBA players.

Multiple teams have had due diligence conversations with Denver regarding guard Malik Beasley, league sources say. Because of their wing depth with Beasley, Juancho Hernangomez and Gary Harris, Denver (14-7) routinely receives trade calls but has no traction currently on any deals. Beasley and the Nuggets did not reach agreement on a contract extension in October, clearing the way for him to be one of the top restricted free agents next summer. Beasley is considered a talented, 6-foot-5 shooting guard with scoring potential.
Nuggets coach Michael Malone said he didn’t think injuries to Gary Harris or Paul Millsap were too severe in the aftermath of Tuesday night’s win over the Miami Heat. Harris hobbled off the court at halftime after he came down awkwardly on a floater late in the second quarter. He was ruled out for the remainder of the game with a left ankle injury and was replaced by Torrey Craig to start the second half. “(Gary’s injury) I don’t think is very severe,” said Malone. “I think a couple days of rest and rehab, hopefully he’ll be able to play on Friday night.”
On a sunny Thursday afternoon outside Pepsi Center, Gary Harris was spending time with Nuggets fans. The 25-year-old guard took time to sign game-worn sneakers and distribute them to the long line of fans that came out. After the sneakers ran out, Harris signed jerseys, Nuggets memorabilia, a computer and even a ukulele. As the line of fans grew, Harris stayed to take a picture with any fan who wanted one. “Two years ago I did a scavenger hunt where I signed shoes and put them all around the city,” Harris told Nuggets.com. “I didn’t have the time to do that today, but I still wanted to give back to the fans so I decided to just give them away outside Pepsi Center.”
Forty-eight hours after dispatching the Spurs in their first Game 7 triumph in 41 years, the Nuggets rode a 37-point performance from Nikola Jokic to a 121-113 win over the well-rested Portland Trail Blazers in the opener of their second-round series Monday night. Lillard, who struck for 50 points, including a 37-footer at the buzzer to oust Oklahoma City in five games, scored two more points than Jokic. But he had a-half dozen turnovers, missed 8 of 12 3-point attempts and Gary Harris blocked his 3 from behind in the closing minute to keep the Trail Blazers from closing in. “We just made him uncomfortable,” said Jamal Murray, who added 23 points and eight assists for Denver to go with just one turnover.
With the Spurs down 110-92, DeRozan drove to the hoop and was called for a charge on Nuggets guard Gary Harris. DeRozan then slung the ball high and over toward Foster, who was standing about 30 feet away along the right sideline. DeRozan was assessed two technical fouls by official Rodney Mott and ejected from the game. Asked to explain what led to his ejection, DeRozan said, “Frustration. I thought it was a bad call. Combination of both.”
