MT @espn_macmahon: I'm told Devin Harris deal reported by @ESPNSteinLine is for similar terms agreed to last summer: 3 years, $9+ million

Mavericks & Devin Harris putting finishing touches today on expected three-year deal. Priority for Dallas especially after Calderon traded

Exellent bargain. Was needed after Calderon trade. I'm still not convinced at Devin or Felton starting. Jameer would be a good fit at starter IMO. He seems like a Dallas guy.

Great signing for Dallas at that price.

It depends on what else we do. Harris at 3 million a year is great value whether you have Thomas or not. People need to understand this about team building. It's all about value at price points.

If this is true...we now have Harris, Dirk, and Ellis at great value for their price point. That is really important.

Wright is on a fair deal and he expires....and obviously Chandler is overpaid, but he expires and is badly needed for us this year. Felton's contract is not bad either. 3.7 million a year for 2 years is fine. He could easily play a 10 to 15 minute role kind of like what Barea did for us back in 11 in the playoffs. Felton is definitely capable of that...he's just not a starter or 30 minute per game guy likely...but he still has that potential.

I actually wouldn't be against getting Thomas if the value was right even with Harris and Felton on the books. For starters, Feltons' deal is not some horrid contract that would be impossible to move. And at the right price...you just get Thomas and make it work.

I'd rather we fill in the sf and get a backup big, but the market for that might not be great.

I actually wish we had gone after Hawes, the contract he signed was a great value and he'd be another guy to take pressure off Dirk. Dirk, Wright, Hawes, and Chandler is a really solid group of bigs actually. Yea, it's not great defensively, but it's better than our group last year defensively and way better offensively.

Is it what I want? Nah...but unless Deng lowers his price or Ariza is willing to come here...we are kind of stuck.

I don't understand your infatuation with Deng or Ariza. Neither of those players are better defenders than Marion, who the Mavs have bird rights to and can probably sign for cheaper. Hell, Lebron always destroys Deng. Dude's overrated as hell.

The Mavs are one piece away from being a legit contender imo. They're my dark horse if they get Ariza.

At least they know what they're getting in the 31 year old back up, for better or worse. He's experienced, still pretty fast, ok shooter. Nothing special, but looks better than he did in ATL that's for sure. Think he's comfortable on the Mavs.
