Dallas Mavericks guard Devin Harris out of walking boot soon, likely to play in December or January

The Dallas Mavericks received some good news recently when point guard Devin Harris was told he no longer needs his walking boot, this after undergoing a toe operation earlier in the offseason.

Harris, who is expected to play both shooting and point guard this season signed a relatively lucrative contract with the Mavericks in July, though, the contract was later voided after his physical. The two sides were able to agree upon a one year deal however, which will likely allow Harris to take the court either in December or January, according to head coach Rick Carlisle.

Per Earl Sneed:

Harris of course rejoined the Mavericks, where he spent the first few seasons of his career before he was traded to the then New Jersey (now Brooklyn) Nets in exchange for Jason Kidd.

That helped the Mavericks win an NBA title and now the process has come full circle, with Harris back in Big D while Kidd is coaching the Nets.
