Another disappointment for Luka Doncic at the Mavs?
Clearly, Luka Doncic is having a pretty difficult end to the season. Bad news has followed for the Slovenian since the elimination of the Mavs, and the latest is still worrying.
Star assigned to Dallas since his arrival in the league, Luka Doncic is still struggling to bring his team to a new level. The lack of support is evident in Texas, to the point that some tensions have arisen in recent months. In question ? The rise of a leader, who seems to have differences with the Slovenian.
Recent changes in the front office are not helping, and we think especially of the departure of Donnie Nelson, who had been GM for over 20 years in Dallas. Doncic was very close to him and unsurprisingly, he had a terrible time leaving. as he told the media.
Unfortunately for him, the bad news is linked with the Mavs, and we have to believe that the arrival of Jason Kidd as coach does not delight everyone. According to Tim Cato of The Athletic, it is the assistant Jamahl Mosley who could leave the ship.
If we’re talking about him, it’s because he has a very good relationship with Doncic. The two have been close for a few years, but Mosley obviously had a hard time digesting Kidd’s arrival as coach. At the very least, he wouldn’t have appreciated the lack of consideration when looking for a replacement for Rick Carlisle.
Doncic has built a very close relationship with assistant Jamahl Mosley, but, it comes back to the issue of meritocracy. Mosley could leave the franchise, sources say, after failing to receive serious consideration for the vacant coaching job.
Visibly disappointed not to have been considered, Mosley could go elsewhere. A disappointment we imagine for Doncic if this is confirmed, and a blow for the bench of Mavs. Kidd is going to have a job to build his staff, and could just draw from the Lakers.
Another blow for Luka Doncic in Dallas, who could lose a loved one, a few days after the departure of Donnie Nelson. Definitely, the good news is absent for the Slovenian at the moment.
