Mark Cuban confirmed that free-agent point guard Devin Harris isn’t leaving the Mavs. Two weeks ago the Mavs and Harris had verbally agreed on a three-year, $9 million contract. But the Mavs discovered Harris needed toe surgery, so the two parties got together to work out a restructured contract to keep Harris after he returns from surgery. “He’s coming back,” Cuban said. “We just restructured the deal and once we have something to announce we’ll get it all out there.” Fort Worth Star-Telegram

Sources told ESPN.com that Harris is now likely to have surgery on toe by month's end to put him in line for a return to the court by the start of the NBA's regular season. Upon learning of Harris' need for surgery, Dallas reached terms Friday on a three-year deal worth at least $25 million to sign Milwaukee Bucks free agent Monta Ellis. The money Dallas is no longer spending on Harris, sources said, has been earmarked for the signing of a big man, with Milwaukee free agent Samuel Dalembert ranking as the Mavericks' clear-cut preference after team officials spent all day Thursday meeting with him in Dallas.

A natural reaction to Devin Harris agreeing to return to Dallas is to wonder just how many point guards the Mavericks can squeeze onto the roster. Don’t assume that point guard will be Harris’ primary position during his second tenure in Dallas, however. The 6-foot-3, 192-pound Harris will likely get at least as many minutes at shooting guard as he does at point guard. He might be the Mavs’ starting shooting guard next season with Vince Carter continuing to serve as the sixth man. ESPN.com

So Dallas will get consideration if he doesn’t get a huge financial offer somewhere else? “Always,” he said. “Dallas has always been home. I’d give them some consideration and see what happens. I still have a couple days left to try to enjoy the summer before things start to happen. But I’m just playing my options and see what’s open. I’ll make a decision when it’s time.” Dallas Morning News
