It was a big day Tuesday for Wisconsin product Devin Harris. The point guard officially rejoined the Dallas Mavericks, agreeing to a three-year, $9 million deal, and consequently was the subject of one of the day’s top sports tweets.

You see, the Mavs spent the past few weeks trying to lure Dwight Howard, another free agent with the initials “DH,” to the Metroplex. It didn’t work, of course, as Howard signed with in-state rival Houston.

Well, with the signing of this “DH,” Dirk Nowitzki, the face of the Mavs, composed a clever tweet to welcome back the former Badger.

Congrats to Harris, who played for three teams (Nets, Jazz and Hawks) since last suiting up for Dallas in 2008.

During his three years at Wisconsin, Harris helped the Badgers win back-to-back Big Ten championships (2001-02 & 2002-03), the latter an outright crown, and claimed 2003-04 Big Ten Player of the Year.
