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

The Hawks will use the same starting lineup in Game 2 of their playoff series with the Pacers. The first unit will be Jeff Teague, Devin Harris, Kyle Kover, Josh Smith and Al Horford. “I think after every game, particularly a game where things don’t go as well (you consider change),” coach Larry Drew said Wednesday. “It’s not time for us to panic. From a lineup standpoint I want to stay with what has been good for us. Obviously, through the course of the game we’ll make changes. At times we’ll be smaller. At times we’ll be a little bigger. It’s definitely not a time to panic and shift things around. “In going back and looking at our first game with them, we didn’t do enough things well. If we correct a few things, it puts us in a better position.” Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Devin Harris started a third straight game at point guard Sunday against the Nets. According to coach Larry Drew the decision is based on Harris’ recent play and the condition of Jeff Teague’s sprained left ankle. Harris averaged 16 points, 6 assists, 3.5 rebounds and 1.5 steals in the previous two games, victories over the Lakers and Suns. Harris started against the Lakers as Teague missed the first game of his pro career due to injury. “He really starts the game with a lot of energy, which I really like,” Drew said. “He really pushes it and attacks the rim. So, we are going to stay with it for right now. I’m not saying it’s going to be permanent but for right now we are going to stay with it.” Atlanta Journal-Constitution
