Mavericks preparing to sign Devin Harris for 3 years, $9 million

Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

Dallas make their second major off-season move as they prepare to sign former Maverick Devin Harris, who most recently played with Atlanta.

There's a reunion in Dallas on it's way, in the form of Devin Harris. Mark Stein reports that the Mavericks are in the process of signing the Atlanta guard.

More information is forthcoming, but the initial reaction is, "WHAT?" While the Mavericks have no centers and one shooting guard signed, Harris becomes the fourth point guard on the roster.

However, this move makes a little more sense if the Mavericks plan on using Harris at shooting guard. Bryan Gutierrez checked the data:

To be precise, Harris' top three five-man lineups were beside Jeff Teague. Although this is still a strange move, it does make a little more sense.

Still, Harris isn't really a shooter (33% from three last season) and isn't well-known as a defender. Can anyone else figure how this makes sense?
