Point guard Devin Harris is returning to the Dallas Mavericks. 

Eddie Sefko of the Dallas News reports Harris actually had a vision of being reunited with the Mavericks, the very first NBA team he played for from 2004-08. Now, it seems this premonition may happen. 

News of the impending reunion stemmed from Harris taking part in Dirk Nowitzki's charity baseball game in Frisco, TX when he was asked about joining Dallas as a free agent. 

"It's crossed my mind since I left. Obviously, I think it would be cool to come back."

Yahoo Sports' The Sports Xchange says Harris reached a new deal with the Mavericks for three years worth $9 million. He departed Dallas in 2008 as part of the trade for Jason Kidd and now finds himself returning to the team after five years. 

Dallas' backcourt will take on a new look next season. In addition to Harris, the Mavericks also reached agreements with guards Jose Calderon and Gal Mekel. Calderon reached a four-year, $29 million deal with Dallas on Friday night. 

ESPN also reports the Mavericks are pursuing Philadelphia 76ers center Andrew Bynum and Phoenix Suns backup center Jermaine O'Neal with the approximately $8 million in cap space they have left. 

Harris averaged 9.9 and 3.4 assists with the Atlanta Hawks in the 2012-13 season.
