NBA Trade Rumors: Nets On Verge Of Dealing Devin Harris?

The New Jersey Nets could be on the verge of a trade involving a star player. No, sorry, not THAT star player. A report in the Bergen Record indicates that the Nets could be on the verge of sending Harris, the team's point guard, to the Portland Trail Blazers in a deal that would feature veteran Portland guard Andre Miller.

The Record says the Nets "have been unhappy with Devin Harris’ level of play and commitment to the team lately and are trying to move him."

Harris, 28, is averaging 15 points and 7.6 assists per game this season. Miller, 35, is a veteran player in his 12th season averaging 13.1 points and 7.4 assists per game this season. The Record reports that several other players would also be involved in the deal, as you might expect with the disparity in ages between Harris and Miller.

This is an interesting development for the Nets. Harris and head coach Avery Johnson were together for 3 1/2 seasons in Dallas, seasons that did not really go well for the young Harris.

There is a widespread perception, from Big D to Jersey, that Harris had to get away from Johnson to become the All-Star he has become.

If these reports prove to have merit it seems that Johnson and the Nets have decided that, in reality, coach and player need to go their separate ways to be successful.
