NBA Trade Rumors: Mavericks Only Offering Caron Butler For Devin Harris

Per Marc Stein, it appears that the Dallas Mavericks are only willing to offer the expiring contract of UConn product Caron Butler to reacquire Devin Harris from the New Jersey Nets. Stein tweeted:

Sources say Mavs have already rejected Nets' request for Dom Jones and a first-rounder in addition to Caron Butler. Butler is their offer.

Stein also tweeted that the Portland Trailblazers and Mavericks are the only two serious suitors for Harris at the current time, which is contrary to a report last night that the Atlanta Hawks were in on Harris as well.

The Mavericks were originally linked to Harris in a three-team trade that would have sent Raymond Felton and Timofey Mozgov to New Jersey, Harris to Dallas and an unknown player or pick to Denver - but it's possible that the unknown player would be Butler and his expiring contract. Denver has since decided to hang onto Felton and Mozgov, at least for the time being, ending any type of three team deal there.

If the Mavericks aren't able to increase their offer, it's dubious that a deal will get done to bring Harris back to Dallas.
