At one time, not all that long ago, Devin Harris was emerging as one of the top young point guards in the NBA.

Fresh off finding success with the Dallas Mavericks, the former #5 overall pick was traded to the New Jersey Nets where he was selected to the 2009 All-Star game.

A few nagging injuries slowed down Harris, resulting in another trade, this time to the Utah Jazz before finally landing in Atlanta where he’s spent the last season, struggling.

Outside of his rookie season in 2004-2005, Harris averaged a career low 9.9 points a game and often found himself on the bench in some unique rotations employed by then head coach, Larry Drew.

Now an unrestricted free agent, Harris has his eyes set on a starting point guard job, which could be found in Milwaukee if the reports hold true that the Bucks would prefer to keep Monta Ellis over Brandon Jennings.

Per Gery Woelfel:

Devin Harris receptive to signing with Bucks this summer.

Of course, Harris is pretty familiar with the area as he played at the University of Wisconsin for three years before declaring for the NBA Draft.
