Harris Signs Deal To Return To Mavericks

The team announced that the 30-year-old Harris will return to Dallas, where he spent the first 3.5 years of his career.
The club and Harris reportedly agreed to a three year, $9 million deal at the start of free agency. However, a toe injury was reportedly discovered during his physical, nixing the deal.
