“Listen, we all did everything we could to make it work. It was challenging,” Carlisle told ESPN.com as the Mavs prepare for a reunion with Rondo in Monday’s road game against the Sacramento Kings. “Going back in time, it’s a deal we should have shied away from, for the sake of us and for the sake of him. It’s a deal we shouldn’t have made. “I think we all realize that now, but when you do a deal like that, you’ve got to do everything possible to make it work. I learned a lot going through the year with him and trying to be creative and use some of his unique abilities. He’s a very talented player, and he’s having a great year this year, which is basically no surprise.”
“I don’t have any regrets about the way we did anything,” Carlisle said. “It’s just going back in time, it’s a deal that had red flags. We should have stayed away from it. “With everything that happened with that whole situation, the bottom line is we fit him worse than he fit us. We were a worse fit for him than he was for us. We had a team of slashers last year. He needs shooters. “Now he’s got a center that’s a shooter, he’s got wing players that can all shoot the ball, and George has given him the keys to the ignition. He’ll be great in that situation. We didn’t have enough shooters around him.”
