Coach Rick Carlisle may look to Devin Harris to provide a scoring punch off the bench as the team's sixth man this upcoming season.
"They haven’t really defined it as who’s going to start," Harris explained. "I know [Carlisle] wants to use a three-guard rotation to play a little (more) uptempo than we did last year. I think he likes me coming off the bench, which I’m fine with, and maybe closing out some games. But I think he’s going to use all three of us in different types of roles." Harris' knack for getting injured, partnered with the plethora of guards in the Mavs backcourt really limits his fantasy value. He shouldn't be viewed as anything more than a late-round flier.

Devin Harris officially signed with the Mavericks on Friday.

Health is always a concern with Harris, but if he's able to stay on the court next season, he'll likely have a larger role with the departure of Jose Calderon. It's not outlandish to think that Harris could eventually overtake Raymond Felton for the starting point guard position, but again, Harris' injury history (he's missed an average of 28 games the past three seasons) makes him for an extremely risky pick come draft day.

The Mavericks and Devin Harris are "putting the finishing touches" on a three-year deal on Saturday.

The loss of Jose Calderon means Harris could see a bigger role at point guard. He couldn't really stay healthy last season, but he had some nice flashes off the bench. He could be a sneaky late-round pick since only Raymond Felton is in his way for playing time.

The Dallas Mavericks hope to re-sign backup point guard Devin Harris.

"It’s important," said general manager Donnie Nelson. "Guys that were in our locker room last are guys that we would love to have back." The Mavericks have made it clear that they hope to bring Harris back, and with the recent trade of Jose Calderon, he may be in line to start next season. If he does indeed start next year, his fantasy value will take a considerable jump heading into drafts.

Devin Harris will become an unrestricted free agent come July 1, and he will be looking to sign a long-term deal.

When Harris was asked if the three-year, $9 million deal that was offered to him last season before he went down with a foot injury would be enough to keep him in Dallas, Harris responded: "Three years, yes. Somewhere in that area. The years sound good. It would be a good starting point." Harris also added he would prefer to return to Dallas, stating that the Mavs chances of retaining him were "pretty good."

Devin Harris has been connected to signing with the Bulls this summer.

The Bulls will look to bring back Kirk Hinrich and/or D.J. Augustin, but they could turn to someone like Devin Harris as a second-unit guard. Harris played well down the stretch, scoring 11.4 points per game in the first round of the playoffs. Regardless of where he lands, his injury history will make him a tough target in fantasy leagues.

Impending free agent Devin Harris said he'd ideally like to sign a long-term deal with the Mavericks.

The Mavs agreed to terms with Harris on a three-year, $9 million deal last summer. But then they discovered a toe issue that needed surgery, and instead did a one-year, $1.3 million deal. But Harris got healthy and became a big part of the playoff push as a third guard behind Jose Calderon and Monta Ellis, and is still just 31 years old. He'll attract three-year offers.
May 9 - 9:32 AM

Devin Harris played well in his 24 minutes off the bench against the Spurs during Game 2's 113-92 win with 18 points, four boards, five assists, one steal and one block.

He shot 7-of-9 from the field with two 3-pointers for a stellar 88.9 effective field goal percentage. Harris played great with 19 points in Game 1 and he's certainly earning his playing time with his ability to get to the rim. The Mavericks have been managing his minutes all season and he looks like he'll be scoring in the teens more often than not during this series.
Apr 23 - 11:31 PM

Devin Harris scored 19 points off the bench in Sunday's loss to the Spurs to go with three rebounds, five assists and three 3-pointers.

He was the only Maverick in double-figure scoring at halftime and was also the only player on the team with more than 11 points to end the game. Harris gave the Mavericks a lot of life and may have earned even more minutes than his 32 today. The Mavericks have been managing his minutes for much of the season, so they're apparently going to let him loose.
Apr 20 - 4:08 PM

Devin Harris started the second half of Sunday's game and finished with 11 points, three 3-pointers, seven rebounds and six assists in a tough 104-107 loss to Brooklyn.

Jose Calderon left after one minute with a "facial injury" after getting elbowed in the nose, which allowed Harris to log a season-high 40 minutes. His feisty defense and reliable playmaking have been a boon for the Mavs without translating to fantasy value, but that could change if Calderon's injury prevents him from playing on Tuesday. Owners in need of scoring, 3s and assists should keep an eye on the Mavs' injury report.
Mar 23 - 11:02 PM

Devin Harris played 32 minute s against the Wolves on Wednesday, scoring 13 points with four boards, four assists and two steals on 4-of-11 shooting.

The Mavericks have him locked in as a sixth man-type guy right now and they have actually gone smaller more often with Harris as a third guard. In fact, Vince Carter even played some power forward tonight. Harris also played in overtime to help him get to a season high in minutes and shot attempts. His upside is intriguing for points, assists, steals and treys, so he's on the radar as an end-of-the-bench guy in standard leagues.
Mar 20 - 12:34 AM

Devin Harris scored 12 points on 3-of-8 shooting (1-of-4 from deep, 5-of-6 from the line) with three rebounds, six assists and two steals in 20 minutes off the bench on Monday.

Harris has the ability to put up numbers like this but his durability and consistency are not just a question but usually a foregone conclusion and not in a good way. He'd need to do this at least one more time before we get the courage to recommend a deep-league add.
Mar 18 - 1:47 AM

Devin Harris went through practice on Friday.

He is not on the injury report, but did return from an Achilles injury on Wednesday. Harris is hurt an awful lot, so we just thought to add a quick little update here after he played well in his previous two games.
Mar 14 - 2:15 PM

Devin Harris scored 12 points in his return from an Achilles injury on Wednesday to go with three rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer in 20 minutes.

He missed Tuesday's game due to his sore Achilles and it was a bit of a surprise to see him back so soon. Harris has almost always missed multiple games due to injury, so this problem is likely minor. He has solid per-minute production, so owners in deeper leagues can give him a look as long as they're not cutting a reliable piece.
Mar 13 - 12:19 AM

Devin Harris (Achilles) will play against the Jazz on Wednesday.

He was a game-time decision for tonight and the Mavs will let him give it a try. Harris turned in a gem on Sunday with a 20-point game, but then was hurt after seven minutes on Tuesday. We'll let you know how he does tonight.
