“In Madison Square Garden I don’t think there is anything I would love more than that,” Smith said of the thought of playing against his former team. “To be honest, I really don’t think there is anything I would love more than that. I’m still good friends with everybody on that team, like I just did (Dorian Finney-Smith’s) camp, Luka calls me every other week, I just did the baseball game with (Devin Harris) and Dirk, you know all the older guys, I’m still friends with everybody on that team. But, you know I love to compete, so any chance I get to bust that ass, you know I’m good for it.”
Dwain Price: It’s a final: @Dallas Mavericks 106, @Oklahoma City Thunder 103. Burke had 25 pts and 8 assists, Brunson had 18 pts, Devin had 15 pts, Powell had 11-9, Dirk had 7 pts and a season-high 13 reb. Mavs are 30-46 and will host Philly tomorrow at 7:30 p.m.
Devin Harris: “The guy sets a great example for the young guys. He works incredibly hard. He does everything the right way. It’s tough to see a guy like that go. … (Him staying on the bench) was exactly who he is, as a player and a person. (It’s) not surprising at all. He’s a class act all the way.
Dwain Price: Carlisle on Devin Harris; “He’s a veteran that attacks, knows how to play. He gives us another guy who will make plays. He’s been a definite positive factor. The @Dallas Mavericks are 4-0 this season when Harris has been available to play from the start of a game to the end of a game.
Eddie Sefko: Devin Harris, out with a hamstring since Game 1, may return Saturday against OKC, Rick Carlisle says: “We’ll know more in the morning. He had a nice practice today. So there’s certainly a chance. But a lot of these things are: see how Mother Nature treats him during sleep time.”
Dwain Price: #Mavs G Devin Harris (strained left hamstring) won’t play tonight against the @Spurs. Harris said he just doesn’t feel right. “It just a matter of strength,” Harris said. “The pain is gone, but I’m trying to build the strength back.” @Dallas Mavericks
Eddie Sefko: Much is made of Luka Doncic’s lack of foot speed and athleticism. Here’s what Devin Harris had to say about that: “He still knows how to get to his spots and he’s big and knows how to use the pick and roll. You’re not going to bully him. And I tried to push him around a little.”
In those intimate scrimmages Nowitzki was referring to, veteran guard Devin Harris has noticed how the 20-year old Smith and the 19-year old Doncic are already feeding off each other and looking like a well-oiled machine. “I think they’re starting to get a feel for each other right now,” Harris said. “Obviously Luka is a talent, and he does a lot of things well. “I know Dennis will be playing a little bit off the ball a little bit more, so he’s trying to get used to that and we’re trying to help him with that transition. But I think he’s more athletic than he was last year, so with those two together it’ll be fun to watch.”
Dwain Price: Back for his 3rd tour with the #Mavs, guard Devin Harris told me: “I am glad to be back. It was kind of a stressful summer a little bit, but things worked out. I wasn’t expecting to come back, but it was a nice surprise.” @Dallas Mavericks
Dwain Price: Devin Harris on the DSJ/Luka backcourt: “It’s a work in progress, but I think they’re starting to get a feel for each other right now. With those two together, it’ll be fun to watch.” #DirkTennis #DirtyBackhand @Dallas Mavericks
Shams Charania: Sources: The Mavericks will waive center Chinanu Onuaku, acquired in trade with the Rockets, and complete signing of guard Devin Harris.
Albert Nahmad: Mavs have committed to 22 players (16 guaranteed) – including the unsigned Salah Mejri, Devin Harris, Ryan Broekhoff, and Donte Ingram, and upcoming trade for Chinanu Onuaku. Teams can carry up to 20 at any given time, so they’ll need to release two, and be careful with timing.
Shams Charania: Free agent guard Devin Harris is in strong talks on one-year deal with the Dallas Mavericks, league sources tell Yahoo. Sides hopeful to finalize deal in next day.
Brad Townsend: Based on my conversation with Mavs official this morning, expect Dallas to move quickly toward a Devin Harris reunion, though Harris, like Ferrell, is free to negotiate with anyone.
Bobby Marks: Here are the remaining key free agents available: Marcus Smart (R), Shabazz Napier, Yogi Ferrell (R), Devin Harris, Shane Larkin, Jamal Crawford, David Nwaba, Dwyane Wade, Nick Young, Patrick McCaw (R), Rodney Hood (R), Michael Beasley, Jabari Parker… espn.com/espn/now?nowId…
Harris, in his 24th appearance with the Nuggets, provided the right spark at the right time in Denver’s 100-96 win against Minnesota. On a night when Paul Millsap and Nikola Jokic combined to shoot 28 percent from the floor, Harris scored a season-high 20 points — including shooting 5-of-9 from behind the arc. None were bigger than his trio to end the third quarter that flipped momentum. “I saw a former (2009) All-Star playing with confidence and the swag he had back then,” Nuggets guard Jamal Murray said. “He was just hooping. Guys were getting open and he was making the most of his opportunities.”
Chris Dempsey: Two quick injury updates: Devin Harris (ankle) is probable to play tonight vs. Toronto. Gary Harris (knee) is out #Nuggets
Harrison Wind: Devin Harris just scored his 10,000th NBA point on a three midway through tonight’s second quarter vs Dallas — the team Harris has spent parts of nine of his 13 professional seasons with.
Devin Harris: Dallas Fans, Staff, & Players: Thank you for all the love & support over the years! Mavs will forever hold a special place in my heart, & Dallas will always be home to me. THANK YOU, Mavs Family!! I’m excited for this new chapter & promise to give my all… LET’S GO NUGGETS!!
Gina Mizell: Michael Malone says two-way call-up Monte Morris will see time tonight, since Devin Harris will not join the #Nuggets until tomorrow at the earliest. “What better way (to get NBA experience than) go up against Chris Paul.” Rejoice, @monserud!
Gina Mizell: More Michael Malone on newly acquired #Nuggets backup PG Devin Harris: “He brings a quickness and a pace that we haven’t really had in that position. He’s a blur. He can get to anywhere he wants on the court.”
Earl K. Sneed: Rick Carlisle: “@Devin Harris would be an excellent coach. He’s a terrific communicator, he’s an energetic guy, and he’s got a very good spacial view of the game as well. He has a good feel for the importance of the attention to detail.”
Earl K. Sneed: Rick Carlisle: “Denver has gotten a guy with a lot of experience, a lot of skill, who can really be a difference-maker for their situation, so they’re Very fortune. We wish him nothing but the best.”
Awkward moments happen, and when news broke about Devin Harris being traded to the Denver Nuggets, the Mavericks’ shootaround was just coming to a conclusion. And it was clearly a weird situation. “Sometimes you just got to see the writing on the wall,” Harris said after the morning walk-through. “We were playing our young guys a little bit more trying to bring those guys along. I’m a wily veteran now and sometimes, you just crunch the numbers.”
Harris said he would never discount the possibility of being a Maverick again someday. He’s an unrestricted free agent this summer. “I would never close the door on that,” he said. “We’ll see what happens this summer. “I’ve had a great nine years here. A lot of family here, a lot of guys I still keep in touch with. This franchise has always meant a lot to me. That’s one of the big reasons I came back five years ago. And it always will be home for me.”
Earl K. Sneed: Personally, @Devin Harris was my go-to interview when I needed one, and he always obliged. He even assisted me with wedding planning. He really is one of the best guys on and off the court. This one hurts.
“He’s loyal to a point where, like, myself and J.J., we’re not really looking to go elsewhere,” Harris said. “We came back here for a reason. And we showed loyalty by sometimes taking less than other places to come back to a place where we wanted to go. It’s greatly appreciated because – obviously, we want to win – but we came here because we want to be part of this family. And he reciprocates that with his loyalty.”
Mike Trudell: Brandon Ingram on his ankle: “My foot got twisted in his (Devin Harris) legs. I couldn’t really push off on it. I’ll see how it feels tomorrow.”
Chris Haynes: Rookie Jordan Bell to ESPN on the two mini altercations last night with Salah Mejri and Devin Harris in Dallas. Asked if he felt targeted from when he threw the ball off the glass and dunked it with the game already decided on Oct. 23.
While the name Lone Ranger Heroes may not be a direct interpretation of the Mavericks’ name, players said the new name is definitely an improvement. “It’s better than the other one,” guard J.J. Barea said. “That’s awful. Little cows?” “Obviously, I’d rather be a lone ranger than be a cow,” added guard Devin Harris. “I come from Wisconsin. We don’t really treat cows that well, so much better.”
As for the funeral, the whole Mavericks front office attended the services, according to Livingston. The team’s owner Mark Cuban was especially supportive of Harris, opting to spend the entire day with his point guard at the hospital on the day of his brother’s death. For Livingston’s part, the veteran guard tried to use his presence to support his friend, rather than words. “We were trying to be there for support,” Livingston said. “Nothing’s going to bring his brother back, it’s not really a situation where you just walk up and say ‘you good?’, no, you’re not good. So just try to be there for support and let them know that you’re there for them and try to give him that space.”
Even as the Warriors fret about a start that does not match their championship standard, they are fully aware that life involves more than just basketball. Here’s the latest of many examples: the Warriors granted permission to reserve guard Shaun Livingston to miss Friday’s game against the Washington Wizards at the Oracle so he can attend the funeral of Mavericks guard Devin Harris’ brother. Harris’ brother was killed in a car accident last week. The Warriors had offered support for the Harris family earlier this week. Livingston, who is close friends with Harris, arranged for teammate Stephen Curry to speak with Harris’ nephew, Brayden, before Monday’s win in Dallas as well as sign autographs for him. Livingston plans to return to the Bay Area this weekend, and is expected to be available for Sunday’s game against Detroit at the Oracle.
Harris and his nephew, 9-year-old Brayden, spent some time visiting Harris’ teammates and getting a couple of autographed items from Golden State’s Steph Curry. It was the first time Harris has been at the arena since his brother, Bruce Harris, died on Thursday from injuries suffered in a car wreck. “I lost my brother tragically and it’s been a tough week,” Harris said to several media members in the Mavericks’ locker room with his nephew at his side. “The family is taking it pretty hard, as you would expect them to. Probably the toughest thing I’ve had to deal with, dealing with myself, trying to explain it to his kids, my kids – it’s just been tough.”
Anthony Slater: Steph Curry on what message he gave to Devin Harris’ nephew during their pregame meeting (his father died recently)
Dallas Mavericks guard Devin Harris was granted a leave of absence after his brother, Bruce, died in a car crash on Thursday in Dallas. Despite not playing, Harris was at the arena for the Mavericks’ game against the Warriors on Monday, and his nephew, Brayden, was there too. It led to an incredible show of class from Steph Curry. A pregame video captured a heartwarming scene in the tunnel as Curry comforted Brayden just days after his father’s death. Harris was standing alongside Brayden as Curry offered his condolences.
The brother of Dallas Mavericks guard Devin Harris was fatally injured in an early morning crash on a Dallas expressway. A Dallas police statement says 38-year-old Bruce Harris died Thursday afternoon of injuries from the 1:40 a.m. Thursday crash on U.S. 75 just north of Loop 12 in North Dallas. Officer Tamika Dameron, a police spokeswoman, said Harris and another man were in a disabled vehicle when it was slammed from behind and set on fire by a car with two 23-year-old men.
Bruce Harris, the older brother of Dallas Mavericks guard Devin Harris, died Thursday, the Dallas County medical examiner’s office confirmed. The 38-year-old was pronounced dead at about 12:32 p.m. at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital. According to a Dallas Morning News report, Bruce Harris died from injuries suffered in a car crash early Thursday morning on Central Expressway. Devin Harris, who is starting his 16th NBA season and ninth season with the Mavericks, played in the team’s season-opener Wednesday night, but was excused from Thursday’s practice, according to the Morning News.
“There’s a lot of space in the NBA,” Smith told Mavs.com. “And watching people like Devin and JJ, I can learn exactly how to use that to my advantage. They were just giving me little pointers and things I can do better, or things that they’ve seen somebody else do… They were just trying to keep me getting better. I think it’s great. The best teacher is experience, and they’ve been through all of it. They’re not going to do anything but give me the best advice, and I hope that I can be a good vet like those guys are.”

Dwain Price: BREAKING NEWS: An elderly gentleman just beat Devin Harris in a game of Knockout at the Mavs Hoop Camp in Rowlett.
With his future in Dallas clouded with uncertainties, Devin Harris realizes he might have played his last game with the Mavericks. But the veteran guard doesn’t want to listen to his gut to get any signs on whether or not he’ll have to pack his bags and play elsewhere next season. “I tend to not follow my gut, because once you think one thing. . .it’s been pretty spot-on,” Harris said. “Obviously, the first time I left here (in 2008) was very hard.”
Devin Harris: “My heart was into (remaining with the Mavericks), this is where I wanted to be, but like I said sometimes the business gets the best of you. So I’ll let the chips fall where they may and try to make the decision possible with the information that I have.”
Devin Harris said the Mavericks have not given him any indication of whether the team will pick up the $4.4 million option on his contract for next season. “Ball’s in their court but they haven’t given any indication,” the guard said during the team’s exit interviews Thursday. “I just let the chips fall where they may and try to make the best decision possible with the information that I have.”
Eddie Sefko: Normally mild mannered, Devin Harris is booted after two techs for arguing with ref Ben Taylor. Then Carlisle picks up a tech. Crazy.
