Harris (foot) signed a deal with the Nets on Wednesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reports.
Harris' deal will reportedly be two years for $2 million, according to Mike Mazzeo of ESPN. The former Virginia standout was traded from Cleveland to Orlando in January of 2016 following foot surgery and was subsequently waived by the Magic.

Harris underwent surgery on his foot in Indianapolis on Tuesday and is expected to miss the remainder of the season, making him just a throw-in to a trade that was mostly about the Magic using their open roster spot to get some cash. The second-year guard appeared in just five games for the Cavaliers this season before requiring surgery on his foot. He's expected to be fully recovered by the summer and could receive an invite to join another team during training camps next fall.

Joe Harris will undergo surgery to his right foot and is expected to be sidelined two-to-three months, Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reports.
This is the first we've heard of the injury, but the procedure reportedly is to remove a bone particle from Harris' right foot. His timetable to return is between two and three months, which could potentially end his season. Harris has spent the majority of his time going back-and-forth between the Cleveland Cavaliers and their D-League affiliate, so it's not a huge blow for the team.
Joe Harris was recalled from the D-League's Canton Charge on Sunday.
Harris has often scuttled between Canton and Cleveland this season, appearing in 10 games for the former and five games for the latter. He's unlikely to see the court very often now that he's back with the Cavs.
