The Mavericks will not ask the Pacers for compensation despite Carlisle resigning with two years remaining on his contract, sources said. Cuban did not want to complicate Carlisle’s search for a new coaching opportunity. “He is a trusted friend and a basketball soulmate,” Carlisle said of Cuban. “You occasionally come across people that change your life, and he changed my life, and he changed my family’s lives. It’s very difficult to come up with a simple statement to thank somebody for the 13 years that I’ve had with him. “I just have an amazing amount of gratitude to the city of Dallas, the Mavericks organization, all the players and coaches that I’ve had an opportunity to work with. Dirk, J-Kidd, [Jason Terry], Luka, Tyson [Chandler], Shawn Marion, J.J. Barea — there’s just so many. It would be very emotional to just try to express all the feelings that I have about it.”

Jason Terry on Luka Doncic: 'I don’t buy into the rumors'

Jason Terry: Right now he’s busy in Slovenia, getting ready for the Olympics. And so I know, and trust, you know, Cuban, and the powers that be to do the right things to put the necessary pieces around him. And you know, he loves the city of Dallas. I mean, that’s the city, that gave him his start. And when you watch him play, he wears the city on his chest and on his back. He’s all in when it comes to Dallas. So I don’t buy into the rumors. And I haven’t seen anything or heard anything of it from his end.

Jason Terry on Kristaps Porzingis: And I think they can make it work, man. I mean thing about it is if they continue to go through the pitfalls of the rigors of the NBA season and playoff series, the fire will burn deep enough that you’ll want to get out there and get to it. But you know, I’d hate to see him go. But again, this the NBA, it’s a business and they’re going to do whatever they have to to make their team better.”
If the Mavericks call you, do you think you can be a head coach right now? Jason Terry: “One-hundred percent. That’s definitely on my bucket list and goals of dreams to come true. But when you put all the X’s and O’s aside, it’s about managing people. Are you a people person? Can you get people to buy in to your system and fight for one cause and the betterment of the team? For me, that’s kind of what I did my whole career. Selfless guy, sacrifice for the betterment of the team and always brought guys together.”
Jason Terry: “I’m a huge Donnie Nelson Jr. Fan. He was here in Dallas in 2004. When I was here, he was as an assistant coach under Donnie senior. He gave me my biggest contract in my career. And he’s a friend. Not only was he a business partner, but he was a friend. And I hate to see him leave. But I mean, he’ll go down as one of the greatest GMs the Mavericks have ever had. He did great things, obviously, bringing Dirk, bringing Luka. I mean, he’s bar none, he’s, he’s a top exec in all of basketball. And then seeing Carlisle go I mean, hey, that’s my NBA championship coach. I mean, he’s taught me so much about the game, the X’s and O’s of the game. He was a mad scientist when it came to matchups and putting players in position to succeed. So he had a great run. I wouldn’t put it past anyone to see coach Carlisle in the near future on another bench in the NBA. He’s that valuable to our league and he’s one of the good ones.
