The Dallas Mavericks signed free-agent guard Devin Harris to a one-year deal.

Harris (6-foot-3, 192 pounds) joins the Mavericks for his second stint after spending 2004-08 in Dallas when his draft rights were acquired from Washington, along with Jerry Stackhouse and Christian Laettner, in a draft-day trade for Antawn Jamison on June 24, 2004.

Harris played in 251 games (123 starts) for the Mavericks and averaged 9.4 points, 3.4 assists and 1.1 steals in 22.8 minutes per game. He was also an integral part of the 2005-06 Western Conference Championship squad that earned the franchise’s first Finals appearance.

Eventually traded from Dallas to the New Jersey Nets in a deal that brought Jason Kidd back to the Mavericks, Harris holds career averages of 12.8 points, 4.9 assists, 2.4 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 27.8 minutes in 601 games (442 starts) with Dallas, New Jersey, Utah and Atlanta.

Harris had a standout 2008-09 season in New Jersey when he was named to the Eastern Conference All-Star Team. That year, Harris averaged 21.3 points and 6.9 assists in 69 games.


• Wizards: Point guard John Wall has agreed to a contract extension with the Washington Wizards reportedly worth about $80 million over five years.

• Rockets: Forward Terrence Jones was arrested in Portland, Ore., on Wednesday after he was seen stomping on a homeless man’s leg, a police spokesman said.
