Knicks, Nets trying to lure Tobias Harris using his brother?
Tobias Harris is one of the more underrated NBA free agents in this summer’s class, but two notable teams definitely have not forgotten about him.
Anthony Puccio of NetsDaily reported that the Brooklyn Nets worked out Terry Harris, the star forward’s 23-year-old brother, on Wednesday. Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News added that the New York Knicks also have the younger Harris scheduled for a workout on Thursday.
I’m told Terry Harris, Tobias Harris’ younger brother, worked out for the #Nets today.

Draft prospect Terry Harris, the younger brother of free agent Tobias Harris, has a workout scheduled with the Knicks tomorrow, according to a source.

Terry is a little-known prospect who averaged 8.1 points and 2.8 rebounds per game as a senior for North Carolina A&T last season. He also shot 41.1 percent from deep, making him probably little more than a three-point specialist.
As for Tobias, the most likely scenario appears to be a return to Philadelphia (ironically, the City of Brotherly Love). It does sound like his other suitors are doing everything they can to try and tip the scales in their favor however.
