An Irving-Davis pairing with the Nets might be more likely.
ESPN also reports the Nets have "strong mutual interest" with Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving, who is expected to opt out of his contract and become a free agent. He can not officially sign with the team - or any other team - until the league free agent window starts on June 30th at 6 pm.
First, Harris has been linked to both the Jazz and Brooklyn, but could he sign with the Nets in that second max salary slot to play in his native NY with a player such as Irving?
By taking back Taurean Prince's guaranteed contract for $3,481,985 in the 2019-20 season, this gives the Nets an additional $15 million in cap space for next season.
While this deal can not be consummated until July 6 due to the collective bargaining agreement, when it is completed, the Atlanta Hawks will be sitting pretty with three first round picks in the 2019 NBA Draft (#8, #10, #17) and three second round picks (#35, #41, #44). They have the No. 8, No. 10, and No. 17 picks.More news: Roy, Buttler power England to 386

In return, the Atlanta Hawks willingly ate Crabbe's bloated salary to continue building up their enormous stockpile of draft picks. Of course, given the talent that the 27-year-old have, the Nets are also holding a similar sentiment, CBSSports reported.
Prince, who was selected 12th overall in the 2016 NBA Draft, appeared in 55 games in the 2018-19 season, averaging 13.5 points while shooting 39.0% from 3-point range.
Prince, 25, averaged 13.5 points and 3.6 rebounds in 55 games (47 starts) previous year for Atlanta, slightly down from his numbers in 2017-18.
