MF Free Agency Tracker: Harris Returns to “Roots” in Dallas

The Dallas Mavericks and Devin Harris always seemed fond of a reunion and in early July the two had agreed to a three-year $9 million contract. An unknown dislocated toe forced the Mavs and Harris to mutually shelve that deal, which quickly led Dallas to reaching an agreement with Monta Ellis.

Restructuring Harris’ deal was immediately reported as a possibility and it came to fruition today when the former Maverick point guard officially inked his contract worth the veteran minimum – valued at $1.3 million.

Harris has played with three teams since his departure from Dallas back in 2008. He made the All-Star game as a New Jersey Net in 2008-2009 when he averaged 21.3 points and 6.9 assists.

In 80 regular season games with the Utah Jazz, Harris averaged 12.3 points and 5.1 assists. Traded in the off-season for Marvin Williams, Harris played last year with the Atlanta Hawks where he saw his minutes, points and assists all decline.

The now 30-year-old Harris played in Dirk Nowitzki’s Heroes Charity baseball game on the brink of free agency. He mentioned then how coming back to Dallas was always on his mind. He’s back and now the Mavs roster officially stands at 14.

Will DeJuan Blair soon complete the team?
