But that famous rainbow jump shot is suddenly a thing of beauty again. Nowitzki's numbers during the Mavs' modest winning streak: 20.3 points per game on 52.4 percent shooting, including 11-of-16 from 3-point range. "He looks like Dirk again," center Tyson Chandler said. "Dirk looks like Holger's in town," guard Devin Harris said. ESPN.com

“We shoot together after practice and he kills me, which [ticks] me off,” Nowitzki said. So on Friday, Harris and Nowitzki were at it again on one end of the practice court at AAC. Harris, by the way, said he takes great delight in dipping into Nowitzki’s rather deep pockets in their friendly-wager shooting games. “He’s kind of a tightwad,” Harris said. “He doesn’t like giving it up, so I definitely enjoy taking it. I beat him a lot. He’s a guy who likes to talk a lot. I don’t like to talk a lot. I just like to beat him excessively.” Dallas Morning News

When asked by ESPN to elaborate on blood analysis, Cuban declined further comment. But interviews with several Dallas players indicate that the team's expanded testing policy is neither obvious nor rosterwide. Guard Devin Harris recalls giving blood only in the preseason as part of the standard team physical; perhaps by design, other plasma-related details remain vague. "I don't know what they do with it once they have it, but they definitely take it," Harris says. "And I know they talked about taking blood throughout the season for certain stuff." ESPN.com

In the informal pickup games, guard Devin Harris has been impressed with Parsons, who signed a three-year, $46 million contract with the Mavericks. “He’s got a good pump fake,” Harris said. “He’s a smart player, he’s a willing passer. “He’ll space the floor for us and he’ll give us some different dynamics where he can play stretch-four for us sometimes. I do think he’ll get better, and obviously he’ll have more responsibilities here, but I think he’s up for the challenge.” Fort Worth Star-Telegram

The final two seasons of the four-year contract between Devin Harris and the Mavs is a little more lucrative than previously reported.

The Mavericks have re-signed guard Devin Harris. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Harris (6-3, 185) returned to Dallas last offseason for his second stint with the Mavericks, but missed the first 41 games while recovering from left foot surgery. Returning from injury, he averaged 7.9 points, 4.5 assists and 20.5 minutes in 40 games. Dallas Morning News

Since they know the exact dollar amounts they have to work with now, on Friday, the Mavericks are expected to finalize the three-year deal agreed to with Dirk Nowitzki last week. After his deal — presumed to be for $10 million a year — is done, the Mavericks will focus on Devin Harris, then Vince Carter. “Those are ongoing, and everything at this stage is kind of inter-related,” Nelson said of negotiations with those players. “We certainly don’t expect any hiccups or issues. Certainly, Dirk is first and foremost, and the other guys in our locker room are right behind him. Our focus is on getting those guys back.” Dallas Morning News

A source said Harris and the Mavs agreed to a deal similar to the one they originally struck last summer (three years, $9-plus million), only to mutually agree to pull it off the table after the discovery that he needed complicated toe surgery. The details of the deal are still being finalized, but it will be a great bargain for the Mavs in a market in which point guards Shaun Livingston and Darren Collison were given the full mid-level exception, getting three-year, $16 million deals from the Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings, respectively.

The Mavs were equally determined to keep Harris, making it clear that he was a priority when Mark Cuban met the 10-year veteran point guard in the opening minutes of free agency. That mutual love resulted in relatively easy negotiations. The Mavs hope the same holds true for sixth man Vince Carter. ESPN.com
