The Dallas Mavericks have halted plans to sign free-agent guard Devin Harris after Harris suffered a toe injury, according to ESPN's Marc Stein. Harris will require surgery on the injured toe and is expected to miss the beginning of the regular season.

Harris and the Mavericks had originally agreed upon a three-year deal worth $9 million but that deal has been scrapped in light of Harris's injury. According to Stein, the Mavericks still remain interested in signing Harris but to an altered contract since Harris is expected to miss time. Both sides mutually agreed to discard the contract.

Harris averaged 9.9 points and 3.4 assists per game as a part-time starting guard for the Hawks last season.
