      (AP/WSET) Joe Harris will remain a Cavalier. The senior sharpshooter was drafted into the NBA Thursday night by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2nd round, 33rd overall.Considered one of the best available shooters, the 6-foot-6 Harris averaged double figures in all four college seasons. He shot 40 percent on 3-pointers (263 of 646) in his career and played in more games (135) than any player in school history.

      Cavs general manager David Griffin felt the team needed to improve its shooting, and Harris should help raise Cleveland's percentage from the field.Harris was unable to work out for teams leading up to the draft because of a broken nose.
