Peter Vescey is reporting that the Mavs are going to hire Rick Carlisle.
Analyst Peter Vecsey, speaking on NBA TV, reported Carlisle would take over for the recently fired Avery Johnson.
This is still not confirmed, and personally I'd be really surprised if the Mavs front office rushed to a decision like this. Take this with a really big grain of salt.
I will say that out of the immediate reported candidates Carlisle was the most intriguing, but I would also be disappointed if the choice was made without more thought and time than this...
