EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey - The New Jersey Nets held onto a key component of their bench Tuesday, re-signing free agent guard Lucious Harris.

Terms were not disclosed.

"We are very pleased to re-sign Lucious," general manager Rod Thorn said. "He has been a valuable member of our team for the past six seasons and we look forward to his continued contribution."

Harris, 32, averaged a career-high 10.3 points and 2.0 assists last season for the Nets, who advanced to the NBA Finals for the second year in a row. He was named Eastern Conference Player of the Week in late December while filling in for injured starter Kerry Kittles.

In 20 playoff games last season, Harris averaged 7.8 points and 1.6 assists. He has appeared in 43 postseason contests for the Nets, tying Kittles for tops in team history.

It has been a busy summer for the Nets, who re-signed Jason Kidd to a $103 million deal and inked Alonzo Mourning to a $22.6 million contract.
