Rick Carlisle accepts loss of Jason Terry, Jason Kidd
|Mavs coach Rick Carlisle discusses the departure of Jason Kidd and Jason Terry and the arrival of Jared Cunningham, Bernard James and Jae Crowder. |
Speaking for the first time publicly since the Mavs lost out on No. 1 free-agent target Deron Williams a week ago, Carlisle said he has accepted the loses of Kidd and Terry, and suggested that the team’s “flow” offensive style could change depending which players the Mavs eventually sign to round out a stripped-down roster that has just seven players under contract.
“With Kidd not being back and Terry not being back, those are two guys whose numbers are going to be hanging in the rafters here, so things will change a little bit,” Carlisle said. “But we’re going to wait and see exactly how much before we decide what things to tweak in our system.”
