    behind the scenes, Luka HATED Carlisle. I wouldn’t be shocked if this was a “quit or be fired, because Luka doesn’t want you back next year” scenario.

    This will only help keep Luka in Dallas.
    The real issue is Mark Cuban's horrible relationship with Luka's agent, Billy Duffy. There is loooooong history going back to Steve Nash and some posting Cuban did about Duffy. Duffy also represented Darren Collinson and Rajon Rondo when they were on the Mavs. It was ugly.

    Rick is just not good with younger players.( He probably ruined Roddy B) He just clashes with any young, ball dominant player who does not do things his way.

    I could see Rick working out in a place like Portland. Dame is established enough to where he can sit back and let their guards initiate the offense.

    Doncic is also represented by Bill Duffy, who has had a rocky relationship with the Mavericks over the years as detailed by Tim MacMahon on The Lowe Post. MacMahon adds that Donnie Nelson, who was fired by Mark Cuban, helped the Mavericks manage the relationship with Duffy.

    "Where Donnie was really important, just in terms of the Luka dynamic," said MacMahon. "Not just the relationship with Luka but the relationship he had with Bill Duffy, Luka's agent.

    "The Mavericks, well before Luka... they have burned some bridges with Duffy. Bill Duffy was Steve Nash's agent. Mark Cuban had a multi-thousand blog post blasting Bill Duffy after Steve Nash's departure to the Suns way back when.

    "Bill Duffy represented Darren Collison. Represents Rajon Rondo. Those guys had disastrous, brief, messy, contentious stints playing for Rick Carlisle.

    "Bill Duffy is ultimately going to do what is in the best interest of his client, but my point in saying all of this is I don't think these guys are going to get benefit of the doubt. I don't think they've earned benefit of the doubt with him."

    Then proceeded to surround Dirk with the likes of Lamar Odom and Rajon Rondo, only to watch Rondo quit in the playoffs. All while chasing Dwight Howard with comic book strips in a recruitment pitch

    Or being stuck paying Porzingis 30 ing million a year, and having no picks to help upgrade the team.

    Luka Doncic is a strong supporter of Mavs assistant coach Jamahl Mosley. “He’s got the things that are needed for a head coach," Doncic said after Mosely's one-game fill-in for a win over the Knicks this season. "He can be the head coach, for sure.”

    From what I remember just about everybody hated Carlisle. He was way too controlling, wanted to call every play and didn’t give his players any freedom. I can see how that rubs Luka the wrong way. And unlike Pop with Gino, it seems like ol Ricky didn’t want to change his ways

    What kind of player needs to be coddled in the offseason by the GM and head coach FFS?

    I would've probably gotten out too if it's as bad as all that.

    TBH.

    But I think he still wanted to do what he could to go back to back for Dirk if at all possible.

    Every pg was disagreeing with him. Kidd especially. I am not sure that anyone hated him... well, rondo. Luka played for coaches that screamed on him in Europe and that was not a problem for him, so I dont think Luka was a big reason Rick quit. More like, Rick didnt like wtf is Cuban doing with listening to a gambler. Same for Nelson. Luka was very close to him and i am not buying any of this Luka GM bull . Its pretty obvious Cuban is incompetent. I also do think Nelson should have lost the job, as he has done nothing. Rick was fine, i guess, but nothing special.
