NBA Roundup (July 5): Devin Harris returning to Dallas Mavericks

Associated Press Published:

The Dallas Mavericks are bringing back Devin Harris in what could be a more prominent role for the point guard.

Two people familiar with the deal told The Associated Press on Saturday that Harris and the Mavericks have agreed on a new contract. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the team hadn't announced the deal.

The 31-year-old Harris played for Dallas on a one-year, $3 million deal last season, missing the first half of the year after offseason toe surgery. He originally had a three-year contract worth $9 million, but the deal was scuttled by the toe injury.

The new deal is reportedly similar in value to last year's three-year contract. Harris' role could expand after Jose Calderon was traded to New York.
