Sources told ESPN.com on Tuesday that talks are underway for a new deal to bring the popular point guard back to the Mavericks, with a resolution expected in the coming days after Dallas makes moves to address its center needs. The parties were forced to cancel the three-year, $9 million deal agreed to earlier this month because Harris needs toe surgery.
After the sides reached terms on a reunion deal early in free agency, X-rays unexpectedly revealed that Harris requires surgery on a dislocated toe on his left foot that likely will sideline him for three months. Dallas then quickly switched gears Friday to sign Milwaukee Bucks free agent Monta Ellis to a three-year deal worth at least $25 million.
