Devin Harris signs a one year, minimum contract with Dallas Mavericks


Earlier this offseason, the Dallas Mavericks signed point guard Devin Harris to a three year deal worth a reported $9 million dollars.

Harris, who began his career in Dallas returned on the team friendly deal but a toe injury forced the Mavericks to reconsider the contract, which was eventually voided.

Now, the two sides have agreed on a new contract, but this one will only be good for one year at the league minimum.

Harris confirmed the deal at a children’s hoop camp in Mesquite this weekend.

The former Wisconsin Badger is unlikely to participate in training camp though as of right now, he expects he’ll be ready for the start of the season.

Harris, who spent last season spent last season with the Atlanta Hawks struggled for floor time with Jeff Teague. He’ll now have to fight for playing time with the recently signed Jose Calderon, though, should see an increase in minutes from the sub 25 he received in Atlanta.
