I skipped over this article this morning because I thought it was going to be a duplicate of the one in the Star-Telegram. The one where Jeff Caplan said in passing that Del Harris could possibly take another position within the organization.
Eddie Sefko went a step further than that today, essentially saying that Del Harris's days on the Mavs bench are over.
The Mavericks also must decide who takes Del Harris' spot on the bench. It's possible Joe Prunty will become Johnson's No. 1 assistant, replacing Harris. But there certainly will be at least one new member of the staff on the bench next to Johnson.
Harris has been offered another job in the organization.
Also, Mark Cuban has come up with a solution to "fix" the lottery, which I think is pretty good.
This wont completely eliminate teams from committing to "player evaluation games" at the end of the season, but it does take into account the relevant strengths of the conferences and teams places within the conferences. Its possible that a 25 win team in the better conference is a much better team than a 25 win team in the weaker conference, yet they both get equal weight in the current lottery. They shouldn't.
What makes this system potentially exciting is that teams will have something to play for at the every end of the season. How much fun would it have been watching Boston and Memphis compete to win enough games to get the #1 pick?
