Mavs’ Harris to Play Two Positions for Carlisle?
The cat-quick guard will now try to put aside his off-season setback in time to make an immediate impact on the new-look Mavs team, likely seeing time at both the point and shooting guard positions in coach Rick Carlisle’s system after playing a similar role during his time with Utah and Atlanta.
“Devin Harris is a very good all-around player and a two-position player. He’s got an issue with his toe, and he had to have surgery, but in two or three months he’ll be getting back into the fold, and by December or January he’s going to be a multi-position player who’s going to bring a lot of speed to our team,” Carlisle explained.
“Honestly, my main focus right now is to get healthy,” Harris added. “I’m pretty sure I’ll fit in at some point — play some 1, play some 2. That’s never been a problem for me to get on the court, but I think my main focus is just to get healthy.”
