NBA Free Agency: Devin Harris Back With The Mavs


Days ago, an X-ray revealing a dislocated toe on his left foot nearly cost Devin Harris a spot on the Dallas Mavericks roster. Now, he is expected to join the team, as originally expected.

Last week, the Mavs and Harris “mutually agreed to shelve the three-year deal worth in excess of $9 million that Harris agreed over”. Instead, Dallas went on to sign Monta Ellis to a three-year deal worth at least $25 million.

However, according to Dwain Price (Fort Worth Star-Telegram), the Mavs and Harris have just completed a restructured version of said deal.

This was a move the Mavs needed to make after their first round pick, Shane Larkin, went down last week with a broken ankle. Harris adds depth to the backcourt, giving Jose Calderon a quality backup.

Harris last played for the Mavs during the 2007-08 NBA season, where he averaged 14.4 points and 5.3 assists per game. Last season, with the Atlanta Hawks, Harris averaged 9.9 points and 3.4 assists in 58 games.
