The Brooklyn Nets have a bevy of young players, and they may be thinking of moving at least one of them.

Joe Harris, who is in his fourth year in the league, is having quite the season for the Nets. He's averaging career highs in points, rebound, assists and minutes per game. And if the Nets have the desire to fast track their improvement as a team, they could opt to trade him while his value is high, per an ESPN Insider report that quoted former Nets general manager Bobby Marks.

“The former second-round pick is having a career season and will be an unrestricted free agent in July,” Marks said. “If Brooklyn is looking to optimize Harris' trade value, the window is now. If they hold onto him past Feb. 8, the Nets will either have to sign Harris to a contract that starts in the $5-6 million range or lose him for nothing. Expect the Nets to receive a good second-round pick if Harris is moved.”

This would be a good move for the Nets, whose fortunes are starting to turn after several seasons of being bottom-feeders in the Eastern Conference. The team is 11-15 so far this season, good for 11th place in the conference.

Trading for a pick and not a player may not help the Nets this season, but it is better than letting him walk for nothing.
