DALLAS -- A day after losing Steve Nash, the Dallas Mavericks secured their new backcourt.
Marquis Daniels, a restricted free agent, agreed Friday to a six-year deal worth roughly $38 million and top draft pick Devin Harris signed a contract
for at least $7 million over three years.
The duo could take the court together this weekend.
Harris already has joined the Mavericks' summer league team and Daniels was expected to be added in time for exhibition games against China's national
team this weekend. Harris had 15 points in the first game against China on Thursday night.
Harris is coming off a junior season at Wisconsin in which he was chosen the Big Ten player of the year. He also broke the school's single-season
scoring record, previously held by Mavs star Michael Finley.
