Harris being talked about for deals to Portland, Dallas. 
Posted by Matt Moore

Devin Harris has been on the block for months, and now things are staring to get serious with the deadline two days away. 

Ken Berger of reports  further details on the possible Devin Harris  swaps with the Dallas Mavericks  and New Jersey Nets . "Nets considering sending Devin Harris to Portland forAndre Miller  or Dallas for Caron Butler 's expiring contract, Dominique Jones  and 1st." ESPN reports that deal has been rejected, because the Mavericks only want to send Butler. 

The Dallas Morning News throws  some unsourced cold water on the Devin Harris talk. "Normally, the Mavericks look for bargains when it comes to the trade deadline. This year, bargains won’t do. Steals are what they are seeking. If it’s not along the lines of something great for something close to nothing, they don’t seem interested. Speculation about a reunion with Devin Harris seems farfetched, at best. And the Mavericks are in the enviable position of liking their situation and not needing (or wanting) to take on any long-term money in any deal." 

Yahoo! Sports is also reporting  that the Blazers are also in the talks. 

The Harris deal for Portland's Andre Miller if it winds up straight up. Miller is older, and even with a non-guaranteed contract, that only helps if you land an improvement over the summer. The Nets would essentially be downgrading while giving away their best trade asset. I don't care how well Andre Miller throws the lob, that's insane. 

The Dallas Morning News  reports that the Dallas end of the talks is "far-fetched." Butler himself says on Twitter he's not gonig anywhere .  But based on what we know of Cuban, and his soft spot for Harris, we'll have to keep an eye on it. Adding Harris makes their guard depth considerable.with Harris, Kidd, Jason Terry, Dominique Jones, Rodrigue Beaubois, and Jose Juan Barea. It basically removes any players just taking up roster spots in the backcourt. Dallas almost always makes a move or looks to, and this season should be no exception, despite all the calming noise coming out of Dallas.

Mavs in talks to bring back Harris

Coming across like throwing the lob is the only talent Miller has leads me to believe that Mr. Moore hasn't watched Miller play very often. As a Blazer fan, I get to watch him play every day. He's one of the savviest(?) players in the league. He's also a clutch free throw shooter at the end of games, a good post player, and he knows how and when to control the game. He's totally unselfish, a good scorer, he's very professional, and he never misses games. He's also a good influence on younger players. For my money, considering the team Portland currently has, I wouldn't trade him for anything less than an all-star (or Steve Nash- who should have been an all-star).
So go ahead and take Harris, Dallas. You don't need him either.
