Hearing Devin Harris is on his way back to Dallas. Mavericks and Harris are closing in on three-year, $9+ million deal— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) July 6, 2013
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:
Per http://t.co/p4pppv7sIz, Harris saw a decent amount of time as Atlanta's two guard last season.— Bryan Gutierrez (@BallinWithBryan) July 6, 2013
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?
