While it’s hard to imagine the Celtics making an overture at this point of the year and not submitting a compelling enough offer to lure Larranaga back, they will explore other options as well. When asked Wednesday about the potential maneuver, Mazzulla skipped the confirm or deny part and went right into a generic explanation of his thought process. “I think for me, it’s more about just studying our environment and figuring out what we need to help our staff and not just considering myself, but considering what do our players need?” Mazzulla said. “What are they familiar with and what are they looking for on our staff? And so I think we’re just going to evaluate that and figure out where we are.”

Mavericks have two-year window to prove to Luka Doncic they can contend?

“I think they have a two-year window,” ESPN’s Tim MacMahon said on the Hoop Collective podcast. “This season and next season going into that [2024] summer. I think they have a two-year window where, you know, like Milwaukee did with Giannis Antetokounmpo, I think in that window they really need to convince Luka Doncic that he has a chance to contend year in and year out right here in Dallas. If they can’t get it done in that two-year window, I’m not going to sit here and tell you that he’s going to force a trade or ask for a trade. I’m just saying at that point if he’s not happy, he has all the leverage in the world if he would be looking for leave.
