Mavericks president of basketball operations Donnie Nelson took a minute Monday afternoon to update us with the status of the Rick Carlisle situation. Here's what he had to say:
On how the talks are going: "Negotiations take awhile. There's no timetable."
On when the hiring will happen, if at all: "When everyone feels it's right."
On the possibility of any snags: "We're keeping our options open, as they are. But it's going in a good direction."
