The SportsXchange

The Dallas Mavericks reached a deal with free-agent guard Devin Harris on a three-year contract worth more than $9 million, according to multiple reports Sunday.

Harris heads back to the Mavs after starting his career with the team as the fifth overall pick in the 2004 NBA Draft. The 30-year-old Harris left Dallas in 2008 as part of the trade for Jason Kidd. Since then, Harris has played for the Nets, Utah Jazz and Atlanta Hawks. Last season, Harris averaged 9.9 points and 3.4 assists for the Hawks.

Since the end of the season, the Mavericks have undergone a changing of the guards. In addition to Harris, Dallas has agreed to terms with point guards Jose Calderon and Gal Mekel and picked point guard Shane Larkin of Miami with the 18th overall selection in the draft last month.

---The Milwaukee Bucks struck a three-year, $15.6 million deal with free-agent center Zaza Pachulia, according to multiple reports on Sunday.

Pachulia averaged 5.9 points and 6.5 rebounds as a backup last season for the Atlanta Hawks but was limited to 52 games because of a Achilles' injury. He is expected to be healthy for the start of training camp.

The 29-year-old Pachulia, who was a member of the Bucks in 2005, likely will back up Larry Sanders in the middle for Milwaukee next season.

---The Orlando Magic signed guard Victor Oladipo, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft. Terms were not disclosed.

The 6-foot-5 Oladipo will participate in the Orlando Pro Summer League July 7-13. He averaged 10.7 points and 5.2 rebounds in 104 games for Indiana University, finishing third in program history in career steals (161) and scored 1,117 points.

---The Houston Rockets have reached agreements with guard-forward Francisco Garcia and free-agent forward Omri Casspi, the Houston Chronicle reported.

Garcia, 32, came to the Rockets from Sacramento at the trade deadline this past season in the deal with Thomas Robinson. The Rockets decided not to pick up the option on the final year of Garcia's $6.5 million contract after the season but reached a deal on a two-year veteran's minimum contract of $2.6 million. The 6-foot-7 Garcia averaged 6.4 points in 18 regular-season games with the Rockets and 10.7 points against Oklahoma City in the first round of the playoffs.

Casspi, 25, also agreed to a veteran's minimum contract. The Kings' former first-round draft pick also has played for Cleveland, averaging 4.0 points and 2.7 rebounds in 43 games last season for the Cavaliers. In Houston, Casspi could take over the role of Carlos Delfino.
