DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – After an injury setback delayed the signing of point guard Devin Harris, the Dallas Mavericks made it official on Tuesday.

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.

The terms of the new deal were not disclosed.

The Mavericks initially acquired Harris in a 2004 draft day trade with Washington for Antawn Jamison. Harris went on to average 9.4 points, 3.4 assists and 1.1 steals in 22.8 minutes per game in 251 games for the team.

In 2008, Harris was sent to New Jersey in a deal that brought Jason Kidd to Dallas.

The Wisconsin grad averaged 9.9 points and 3.4 assists in Atlanta last season.
