Donnie Nelson Rumors
Tim MacMahon: Statement from Rick Carlisle on his contract extension: “Mark Cuban, Donnie Nelson and Dirk Nowitzki are the reason an extension like this is possible. I have best owner and general manager in sports, and one of the greatest players in NBA history to thank for this opportunity. There is much work to be done as we move forward.”
Good news Dallas fans! I’m ecstatic to announce that I will be returning back to a Mavericks uniform this upcoming season. My agent, Jeff Schwartz, just called me like literally 2 hours ago. We’ve been going back and forth on calls…he’s been making calls to negotiate the best scenario for me. We were all waiting for a few more dominos to fall before I sign anything. I know Dallas was always in the mix and I really wanted it to work out, which I’m thankful it sure did. We’ve come to terms and I’m returning back to Dallas. It’s only right. Since Day 1 the organization has welcomed me and my family with open arms. I felt an immediate brotherhood with my teammates. I have nothing but respect for Mark Cuban and Donnie Nelson. Those guys operate a first-class organization. They’ve been straight up with me and that’s something that I value a lot…communication. And Coach Carlisle, what can I say about a man that wants to see the best in me and most importantly that BELIEVES in me. I thank you Coach. I don’t see myself anywhere else. I love Dallas and I’m coming back.
Tim MacMahon: Mavs have DeAndre Jordan meeting Wednesday morning, LaMarcus Aldridge that afternoon. Both in LA. Mavs’ recruiting committee: Mark Cuban, Donnie Nelson, Rick Carlisle and Chandler Parsons. Dirk is available this week if needed.
