Devin Harris is still getting his deal with the Dallas Mavericks. It's just for considerably less than it was before.

Harris has signed a one-year, veteran minimum deal ($1.3 million) with the Mavericks, the team announced Wednesday. He had previously agreed to a three-year, $9 million deal but that was derailed due to a disclocated toe that required surgery.

After the Mavs moved on following removing Harris' offer and using their remaining cap space on Monta Ellis and Samuel Dalembert, the most they could offer the 30-year-old point guard was the veteran minimum.

This will be Harris' second stop with the Mavs as he played for Dallas his first three and a half seasons before being traded to the Nets in the Jason Kidd deal.

Harris will add some depth and security to a revamped Mavs backcourt that now features Jose Calderon, Monta Ellis, rookie Shane Larkin (who is injured) and Wayne Ellington.

Harris spent last season with the Hawks, averaging 9.9 points and 3.4 assists in 58 games.
