Last summer, Devin Harris and the Dallas Mavericks reached a three-year deal for $9 million for him to be their reserve point guard. Then X-rays found a dislocated toe that was going to keep him out for a chunk of the season.
Harris did bounce back and play solidly for Dallas, getting in 40 games at an average of 20 minutes a night.
With Jose Calderon gone to New York the Mavericks wanted to lock down Harris again, and they did, agreeing to terms with him again on Saturday, reports Marc Stein of ESPN and confirmed by ESPNDallas.com’s Tim MacMahon.
This is for three years, $9 million. Right at what he got last year.
Harris is a good pick-and-roll point guard who can get to the rim, passes fairly well and can manage a game. He’s not a great three point shooter but he can hit some (30.7 percent last year). He’s a solid veteran. This is a nice signing for Dallas.
