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

by July 07, 2013

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’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.”
