Donnie Nelson just broke his silence with the local media and said that Rick Carlisle has not yet been hired. He has had two interviews and Nelson said they are very impressed with his basketball IQ as well as the man.
Nelson didn't divulge any specifics in terms of a time line or when an offer might be made.
But, at this time, Carlisle, the only interviewee, looks to be on the fast track to taking over the Dallas Mavericks.
