=== Mavs sign first-round pick Harris ===

Dallas, TX (Sports Network) – The Dallas Mavericks signed their first-
round draft pick, guard Devin Harris, to a contract on Friday. As per club
policy, terms were not disclosed.

The Wisconsin product was chosen fifth overall in the 2004 NBA Draft by the
Washington Wizards and then traded to Dallas as part of a huge deal. In
addition to Harris, the Mavericks acquired swingman Jerry Stackhouse and
forward Christian Laettner in exchange for forward Antawn Jamison and cash.

Harris led the Badgers to a school-record 25 wins in 2003-04, earning himself
Big Ten Player of the Year honors. He was runner-up for the Bob Cousy
Collegiate Point Guard of the Year Award and was a unanimous All-Big Ten First
Team selection after averaging a career-best 19.5 points per game.
