Who Gets Cut? 2011 - Round 8

In our closest vote in Who Gets Cut, Devin Harris is let go after receiving just two more votes than Al Jefferson. It was tight all weekend but Harris ultimately gets the boot with 119 votes to Jefferson's 117.

This vote shouldn't be construed as meaning that we don't need a PG. It just so happens that with the past two seasons of Who Gets Cut, our best player has been our PG.

With Harris, I feel detached as a fan. He's a Jazz man so I'll always root for him. He's played decent for the Jazz when he's been healthy and could be our PG for the future. I think there's just been some disconnect because I'm not sure if he's going to be here after next season. With the team firmly committed to rebuilding, his role in that is unknown though Kevin O'Connor has stated that he was a target as well and not just filler.

Statistically speaking, Harris was right at his career averages last season in almost all of his numbers. His best season was in 2008-09 when he put up 21 & 7 with the Nets in his first year in New Jersey. That was a team that featured Vince Carter, Brook Lopez, and Keyon Dooling. The Nets were only the 16th-most efficient offense that season with a 24th-ranked defense. Looking at his career numbers though, Harris is pretty consistent which make you wonder if that's good enough? Is he going to have a breakout year? Or do we know everything we need to know about Harris at this point. If so, that's fine. Is that what the team needs going forward? I wish we had a season to find out.

So then there were four. Who gets the votes cast for Harris?
