Dwain Price: Carlisle said Jenny Boucek: “Will be involved in wide-ranging basketball assignments. Jenny is a veteran WNBA head coach and was a player development coach last season for the Sacramento Kings. I consider her one of the brightest minds in our game and welcome here to Dallas.”

Eddie Sefko: The Mavericks have officially signed Jalen Brunson. The 33rd pick was expected to get a multiyear deal worth similar to what the last picks of the first round received — about $1.5 million for his rookie season.
