The only player on this list who could still not only help the Cavs but would’ve been a huge asset during LeBron James’ second tenure. He joined the club the same year they drafted Andrew Wiggins, and was the third pick of the second round that season. In some ways, his arrival mirrored that of Jason Kapono, a sharp-shooter that had a tremendous stroke that would have been a huge asset for James.
Harris and James arrived in Cleveland both during the 2014 season, and immediately James got to work and Harris got to sitting. He got hurt during the Cavs championship season, was traded to the Magic, and subsequently released. He’d catch on in Brooklyn and become one of the best three-point shooters in the league.
He’s a career three-point shooter for the Nets, and had the Cavs had him after the ’16 season, he easily would’ve given James a third shooter behind Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love. That skill would’ve carried them for a while and may have allowed the Cavs to not trade for aging players like Kyle Korver or blow up their roster for someone like Rodney Hood and Jordan Clarkson.
Harris is only 31, shooting as well as ever, and the Nets will likely try to move him in the offseason if they’re going full-steam ahead with their rebuild. So maybe a reunion is in the cards.
