Guard Devin Harris signed a contract Wednesday with the Dallas Mavericks that was significantly smaller than the deal the sides originally agreed to this summer.
Harris 30 signed a one-year deal for the veteran's minimum of $1.3 million. Earlier this month the sides mutually agreed to pull a three-year $9 million offer off the table when Harris' pre-signing physical screening revealed that he had a dislocated toe that required surgery.
The Mavs could offer Harris no more than the minimum salary after using the rest of their salary-cap space to sign guard Monta Ellis and center Samuel Dalembert.
The 6-foot-3 192-pound Harris returns for his second stint in Dallas. The No. 5 overall pick of the 2004 draft spent his first 3½ NBA seasons with the Mavs playing an integral role on their 2006 Finals team before becoming the centerpiece of the package Dallas gave up to get Jason Kidd before the 2008 trade deadline.
