HoopsHype Devin Harris rumors

October 7, 2014 Updates

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

Devin Harris had a three-year contract securely in hand last summer before his foot problem required surgery. Then it became a one-year deal for the veteran's minimum salary. On Friday at the Heroes Baseball Game practice session, Harris was asked if that original three-year, $9-million deal would be enough to keep him in Dallas as he prepares for free agency. "Three years, yes," Harris said. "Somewhere in that area. The years sound good. It would be a good starting point." Dallas Morning News

That said, after two season-ending injuries in the last three years, the organization understands that they have to brace themselves for the possibility of unexpected misfortune or even just lightening Rose’s burden.
