The Dallas Mavericks and Devin Harris have a long history. From the moment he arrived in Dallas as a rookie via trade, Harris has quietly gone about the business of playing basketball. No matter his position or the decade, Harris filled whatever role was asked of him and did it without any drama or complaint. Even when he wasn’t getting playing time as a rookie, Harris didn’t cause a fuss, despite being a top-five pick in the draft.
“I was able to use my lack of playing time as motivation, and I had some of my best practices,” Harris told Sports Illustrated at the time.
