The last thing you want to see is a player on your roster hurt, but for the Dallas Mavericks, it wasn’t exactly the worst thing in the world.

Devin Harris, who signed a deal with the Mavericks earlier this offseason had his contract voided by the team after they and Harris found out about a toe injury that would require surgery.

That freed up money and playing time for Monta Ellis, who signed with the Mavericks after Harris’ contract was voided.

Now, the two sides have renewed talks on a restructured contract and Harris should return to the Mavericks in a matter of days.

Per Dwain Price:

On PG Devin Harris’ new contract, #Mavs owner Mark Cuban said: “He’s coming back. We just restructured the deal.”

Harris spent the first four seasons of his career in Dallas before being traded to the New Jersey (now Brooklyn) Nets. The former University of Wisconsin star then played for both the Utah Jazz and Atlanta Hawks before coming fill circle in his return to Dallas.
