Harris, a reliable backup at this point in his career, averaged 8.4 PPG and 2.1 APG last season.
Dallas has been home to the 35-year-old point guard, as he has spent nine of his 14 seasons with the Mavericks. His role is likely unknown at this point, as Dennis Smith Jr. is entrenched as the starter, and rookie Jalen Brunson figures into the team’s plans, as well.
With a host of young players fixing to be on the Mavericks’ roster, the addition of Harris makes plenty of sense. Both Harris and Dirk Nowitzki, who recently signed on for his 21st season in Dallas, will provide mentorship to rookies like Brunson and Luka Doncic, as well as Smith Jr.
The Mavericks traded up in the 2018 NBA Draft to acquire Doncic with the third overall selection.
This has been an active offseason for Dallas. Not only did the organization add significant talent via the draft, the Mavericks inked center DeAndre Jordan. The mix of youth and experience will make Dallas an interesting team to watch heading into the 2018-19 season.
