Klay Thompson out, Nets’ Joe Harris in for All-Star Three Point Contest

Associated Press

The All-Star Saturday Three-Point Contest in Charlotte is STACKED. Brothers Stephen Curry and Seth Curry will face off, plus Dallas’ Dirk Nowitzki, Portland’s Damian Lillard, and Sacramento’s Buddy Hield.

But no longer Klay Thompson, the Warriors’ sharpshooter is out. Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports broke the news.

Instead, a guy who absolutely deserves to be there is in — the Nets’ Joe Harris.

Harris is shooting 46.2 percent from three this season on 5.1 attempts per game for Brooklyn. He is the kind of shooter who needs to be in this contest — plus he had the best promo video of anyone.

Harris could well win this thing, Brooklyn has a way of stealing the spotlight from the big names this season.
