Veteran point guard Devin Harris has agreed to a three-year deal worth more than $9 million to return to the Dallas Mavericks, ESPNDallas.com's Tim McMahon is reporting.
The 30-year-old Harris averaged 9.9 points and 3.4 assists per game as a part-time starter for the Hawks last season. He spent the first three-plus seasons of his career in Dallas -- reaching the finals in 2005-06 -- before being traded to the New Jersey Nets for Jason Kidd.
Harris boasts career averages of 12.8 points, 4.9 assists and 1.2 steals per game on 44-percent shooting, enjoying his best season in 2008, when he averaged 21.3 points and 6.9 assists for the Nets. He will likely serve as the backup to Jose Calderon, with whom the Mavs reached a four-year, $28-million agreement earlier this week, after point guard Darren Collison agreed to leave Dallas for the Clippers.
