Devin Deal: Mavericks Keep Harris with 3-Year Agreement

Devin Harris always considered Dallas his NBA home.

He’ll be calling it that for the foreseeable future as he and the Dallas Mavericks close in a new three-year pact.

The Mavericks were in need for point guard security with the recent trade which sent last year starter Jose Calderon to the New York Knicks. Raymond Felton and Gal Mekel are the other two point guards on Dallas’ roster.

Harris returned to the Mavericks last year after being traded away from the organization in 2008 for Jason Kidd. After stints with New Jersey, Utah and Atlanta he found his way back to Big D.

Originally agreeing to a 3-year $9 million contract last summer, a toe injury and surgery forced the Mavs to void his deal. It led Harris to delaying his return before eventually signing a one year contract at the veteran minimum.

The extra money allowed the Mavericks to strike a value signing in Monta Ellis who chose less money in Dallas to win than a 3-year $36 million extension in Milwaukee.

Harris played in 40 regular season games averaging 7.9 points and 4.5 assists. He also played an important role off the bench in Dallas’ playoffs series against San Antonio.

Fantastic keep by the Mavs.
