Mavs Sign Devin Harris to Three-Year, $9 Million Contract

A failed attempt at signing Dwight Howard doesn’t mean the Mavs are done making moves this off-season—quite the opposite, actually. Though a Devin Harris acquisition won’t exactly change the landscape of the Western Conference, it is a solid pick-up on the cheap. Per ESPNDallas: “The Dallas Mavericks and guard Devin Harris are close to finalizing a three-year deal worth in excess of $9 million, sources told ESPN.com’s Marc Stein. The Mavs struck an agreement Saturday to bring Harris back to the team on which he began his career as the fifth pick overall in the 2004 NBA draft. The deal can’t be officially signed until Wednesday, when the league lifts its annual moratorium on free-agent signings and trades. Harris, 30, averaged 9.9 points and 3.4 assists as a part-time starter last season for the Atlanta Hawks, the third team he has played for since the Mavs made him the centerpiece of a package to acquire Jason Kidd in a blockbuster deal before the 2008 trade deadline.”

    ” Though a Devin Harris acquisition won’t exactly change the landscape of the Western Conference..” understatement of the off season

    The way the Mavs are assembling a team of spare parts around Dirk would only make sense about 5 years ago. If the Mavs sign Bynum as well, they’ll have a lot of money invested in some very iffy players.

    no risk no reward.

    its not like DAL has a lot of options. i think short term deals w/ “iffy players” is actually a sound strategy until u land the right talent.

    i expect DAL to remain cap-flexible until they get the right combo of players

    Dallas needs to rebuild, but Dirk can’t wait any longer.

    True, with not being able to sign Howard, waiting for the right player at the right time is their last resort.
