Devin Harris

Now in his second stint with the Mavericks, Devin Harris is now at a crossroads again in Dallas as his time could be over as a Maverick.

Harris is going into next season where he will make more than Seth Curry, J.J. Barea, Salah Mejri and Dorian Finney-Smith annually at $4.4 million. But the key to everything is that 2017-18 salary for Harris is non-guaranteed.

Basically the Mavericks can cut ties with Harris this offseason for nothing.

The guard depth, as constructed, looks to be crowded going into next season. Then factor in a potential rookie point guard on draft night and Dallas will really have to make some decisions going into next season.

Harris appeared in 65 games for the Mavericks and averaged 16 minutes a night. After missing the first part of the season due to a toe injury, Harris came back strong and gave Dallas a versatile, guard presence off the bench that could play both positions.

The decision on Harris could come down to what happens on draft night. Dallas is in the process of getting younger, but Harris is well respected within the organization. I could see this situation going either direction this offseason.
