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 would be returning 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.
Those additions will offset the loss of free agent guards O.J. Mayo and Darren Collison. Mayo reached agreement on a three-year contract with the Milwaukee Bucks and Collison is headed to the Los Angeles Clippers.
The deals cannot be officially signed until Wednesday when the NBA lifts its moratorium on signings and trades.
