You can read the full ESPN story here. Rosas, as you may recall, was hired just over three months ago out of the Houston Rockets' front office. At the time, it was seen as a step in the right direction for a Mavericks front office that has been called out the past few off-seasons on some questionable moves, bad drafts and big free agent misses.

I think our own Kirk Henderson summed it up pretty well though:

As for me, turns out my Gin Blossoms "Follow You Down" dedication to the front office yesterday may have been a little more prophetic than I intended.

We'll update this story as more information becomes available.

UPDATE:

A little more information coming out from ESPN's Marc Stein on this situation - it seems that there was something of a misunderstanding about Rosas's presumed front office role as his tenure began:

The obvious question, of course, is why Rosas's role wasn't defined BEFORE he was brought on board or what he was told or promised about his role alongside Donnie Nelson. We'll continue to update as more happens. In the meantime, check out our own Andrew Tobolowsky's immediate reaction to the news.
