A. We thought last season was breakout for Gary Harris.  He continued his ascension in 2017-18 and established himself among the best young shooting guards in the NBA.  Capable of guarding some of the premier players in the game, Harris’ defensive prowess was overshadowed by his improvement on the offensive end.  The owner of a sweet shot and deft touch at the rim, Harris is responsible for many highlight-reel plays.  Of note, his three to beat OKC. One of the Nuggets ‘core’, Harris enters a lucrative contract extension next year and is widely regarded as an ‘untouchable’ piece of Denver’s future. <p>Gary led the Nuggets with 17.5 points per game.  He averaged 2.6 rebounds and 2.9 assists in 34.4 minutes per game.</p>. SG. Denver Nuggets. GARY HARRIS
