After a grueling practice on Friday, the Nets’ open practice at Brooklyn Bridge Park on Saturday served a dual purpose: a virtual recovery day for the tired players, and chance for the team to build some much-needed inroads in the community. “It’s awesome,” guard Joe Harris said. “For us, we’re trying to be as involved in the Brooklyn community as possible, and that’s been a focal point from the moment [general manager] Sean [Marks] and [coach] Kenny [Atkinson] and everyone got here. We’re in Brooklyn, and while we’re here we’re going to make the most of it. We’re ingrained into the community.
“To come out and have a lighter day, come out and engage and have a lot of enthusiasm and excitement and adrenaline pumping to be a part of this. We’re appreciative to have sort of a day off, but be able to be a part of this. It’s definitely a good change of pace.” The open practice drew enough fans to pack Brooklyn Bridge Park and create an energetic atmosphere with the East River and Manhattan skyline as a backdrop. But the fact of the matter is attendance is, and seemingly always has been a problem for the Nets, one that has followed them from East Rutherford, N.J.

The Brooklyn Nets have re-signed guard/forward Joe Harris. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not released. Harris, who originally signed with Brooklyn on July 19, 2016, returns to the Nets after spending the last two seasons in Brooklyn. The 2017-18 campaign saw Harris average 10.8 points (49.1 percent from the field, 41.9 percent from 3-point range and 82.7 percent from the free-throw line), 3.3 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 25.3 minutes per contest in 78 games (14 starts), all of which represented career highs.
