19) Devin Harris

One-time NBA All-Star Devin Harris started his career with the Mavericks and proved to be a key piece on several Dirk Nowitzki-led teams. At 6'5, his size and speed were an unusual combination that gave smaller point guard fits, specifically Hall of Famer Tony Parker, whom he often battled against during his time with the Mavericks.

However, the Mavericks had trouble winning it all and made the fateful decision to trade Harris in a package for Hall of Famer Jason Kidd. Kidd had also started his career in Dallas and had recently led New Jersey to back-to-back NBA Finals Finals.

Initially, the deal seemed as though it would work out for both teams, with Harris having a career year in his first full season in New Jersey, averaging a career-best 21.2 points, 6.9 assists, and 1.7 steals during the 2008–09 season.

That terrific play was short-lived, however. His scoring dipped by 4.5 points the following year. He was subsequently dealt to the Utah Jazz in the Derron Williams deal. From then on, he was more of a role player over the final eight seasons of his career, though he had a long and successful career that included a one-time all-star appearance.
