After re-signing Mason Plumlee, the Nuggets are turning their attention towards a contract extension for Gary Harris.
The Nuggets have until opening night to negotiate an extension, but based on GM Tim Connelly's comments back in April, Harris should have no trouble landing a lucrative deal. The 23-year-old SG averaged career highs in points (14.9), rebounds (3.1), assists (2.9) and 3-pointers (1.9) last season, shooting 50.2 percent from the field and posting top-60 value in standard leagues on a per-game basis. He's one of our favorite mid-round targets this season. Sep 18 - 10:55 AM

Terry Pluto of the Cleveland Plain Dealer said he's hearing that the Nuggets won't package Gary Harris and Jamal Murray in a potential deal for Kyrie Irving.

It's worth noting that the Nuggets were reportedly willing to let Harris go earlier this summer in a three-team trade between Cleveland and Indiana (with Paul George joining the Cavs and Kevin Love moving to Denver), but Indiana's new GM backed out at the last minute. Harris' trade value is understandably high and the Nuggets would like to sign him to an extension, but it's hard to imagine him staying in Denver if they are able to acquire Irving. Murray and Nikola Jokic are likely the only untouchables on the roster.

The Nuggets will attempt to sign Gary Harris to a contract extension this offseason.

Harris, who averaged career highs in points (14.9), rebounds (3.1), assists (2.9) and 3-pointers (1.9), and shot 50.2 from the field is scheduled to make $2.5 million next season. "I still don’t think the league appreciates how good he is and how young he is," Nuggets general manager Tim Connelly said. "He’s going to be here for a very long time." Injuries are a concern (he played in only 57 games), but Harris' fantasy stock is definitely on the rise.

Nuggets GM Tim Connelly praised Gary Harris for his breakout 2016-17 season.

"Gary deserves so much credit. He’s a guy who has worked his way into the player he is today," Connelly said. Harris averaged 14.9 points, 3.1 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.9 triples on 50.2 percent shooting, and while he only played 57 games due to a couple nagging injuries, he returned top-60 value in standard leagues on a per-game basis. Harris should reprise his role as the starting SG next season and Connelly added that he "is really emblematic of who we are trying to be," so expect him to take another step forward in 2017-18.

Gary Harris (foot, knee) is out for Wednesday against the Thunder.

It's being called a left foot contusion and right knee soreness for one of the most underrated shooting guards since the break. Malik Beasley gets another big chance to build off his career high while Jamal Murray should have a big chance in front of him.
Apr 12 - 7:28 PM

Gary Harris (left foot contusion) is probable to play Wednesday vs. the Thunder.

He should be out there tonight, and with Danilo Gallinari (rest), Kenneth Faried (rest) and Will Barton (foot) all unavailable and Emmanuel Mudiay (ankle) uncertain, Harris figures to be heavily involved in Denver's offensive attack tonight. Feel free to get him active.
Apr 12 - 12:24 PM

Gary Harris had a forgettable performance on Sunday, going 1-of-8 from the field to score two points with five assists and one turnover in 36 minutes.

Harris went 0-of-3 from downtown and he didn't have a single rebound or defensive stat, making this a dreadful game for fantasy owners still fighting for a championship. Harris came in red-hot, having made 25-of-40 shots in his previous three games (62.5 percent), and he should fare much better vs. Dallas on Tuesday.
Apr 9 - 7:53 PM

Gary Harris handed out a career-high nine assists with 20 points, six rebounds and three 3-pointers in 37 minutes against the Pelicans on Friday.

The Nuggets have a couple promising young guards these days. What's more, Jamal Murray's transition to point guard is a great sign for Harris to get big minutes. He's shaping up to be a mid-round pick next year as one of the most underrated players in the NBA.
Apr 8 - 1:10 AM

Gary Harris came through with 23 points, five rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers in 41 minutes of Tuesday's big win over the Pelicans.

Will Barton sat this one out with his foot injury and owners of Harris have to hope that keeps happening. Harris only scored nine points in his previous game, but has been getting very heavy minutes and has scored in double figures in 11 of his last 12 games. The Nuggets are now just a 1/2 game behind the Blazers for the No. 8 seed in the West, so expect Harris and his teammates to keep battling the rest of the way.
Apr 5 - 12:54 AM

Gary Harris dropped 20 points in 41 minutes vs. the Hornets on Friday.

He probably has more massive workloads coming his way, as Will Barton missed this game with foot soreness and Jameer Nelson picked up a right calf strain. Harris finished 8-of-14 from the field with five rebounds, three assists and three triples, and if your fantasy league extends beyond this week, his owners can look forward to deploying him four times next week.
Mar 31 - 9:55 PM

Gary Harris made all three shots from the field and both free throws for 10 points with two rebounds, two assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes against the Pacers on Friday.

We saw Harris peak from a minutes and usage standpoint earlier this month, but now he'll go back to being his super-efficient self with minutes in the low 30s with the Nuggets having their firepower back. That's still totally fine with Harris posting early-round value since the break. He's just a fantastic player in reality and in fantasy.
Mar 25 - 1:01 AM

Gary Harris had another strong game during Wednesday's win vs. Cleveland, scoring 21 points on 8-of-14 shooting with three 3-pointers, four assists and three rebounds.

The Nuggets took it to the Cavs tonight, racking up 126 points on 53.1 percent shooting, and Harris got his slice of the cake. In his past four games he's averaging 21.5 points on 56.6 percent shooting, 2.5 triples, 3.3 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 1.3 steals. Despite being perpetually banged up to start the season, Harris was worth the wait.
Mar 23 - 12:05 AM

Gary Harris hit 10-of-16 from the floor to finish with a team-high 28 points Monday in Houston and he added four assists and three steals.

The former Michigan State standout has averaged 20.2 points, 3.8 assists, 3.4 rebounds and 2.0 steals per game over his past five outings. He is also working on a streak with at least one 3-pointer in eight straight outings, while connecting for a triple in 19 of his past 20 contests. Harris has really emerged as a fantasy asset, especially in rotisserie formats.
Mar 21 - 12:11 AM

Gary Harris scored 17 points with six rebounds, two assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes against the Rockets on Saturday.

He had one of the toughest jobs in the NBA tonight, guarding James Harden for most of his minutes. Harris is being a bigger part of the offense now with an increase in usage while he's also running the offense more. He continues to be an early-round player since the break, so keep him rolling with four games next week.
Mar 19 - 1:04 AM

Gary Harris made 6-of-9 from the field and all five from the line for 20 points with two rebounds, four assists and three 3-pointers against the Clippers on Thursday.

Efficiency is the name of the game for Harris. His 49.2 percent from the field is better than the top-qualifying shooting guard, C.J. McCollum, but Harris does need some more games to qualify himself. Harris has been even better since the break, averaging 16.8 points, 2.6 boards, 2.8 dimes, 1.5 steals and 2.5 treys on 53.1 percent from the field. He's been a third-round player since the All-Star Game in standard leagues.
