James Harden to the Brooklyn Nets was a possibility a few days back, but after re-signing Joe Harris, Brooklyn is shifting its focus elsewhere.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the Nets are focusing in adding complimentary pieces around Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.

“Houston’s not shown a desire right now to really move quickly on James Harden,” said Woj. “Joe Harris was the off-season priority for Sean Marks in Brooklyn. He gets that $75 million deal. They bring Landry Shamet in.

“We’ll see. There are still more deals to made in Brooklyn,” Woj noted. “Their focus now is having those complementary guys around KD and Kyrie. And Harris was at the top of the list to keep him.”

Harris signed a four-year, $75M deal to remain in Brooklyn. Landry Shamet came to the Nets via a three-team trade with the Clippers and the Pistons.
