DALLAS -- Donnie Nelson, the president of basketball operations for the Dallas Mavericks, just cleared the air a bit on the departure of general manager Gersson Rosas.
Well, Nelson sort of cleared the air.
On an appearance on WFAA-TV, Channel 8 during the 6 p.m. newscast, sports anchor Dale Hansen asked Nelson if it's true Rosas wanted to call all the basketball shots instead of working with Nelson.
"I'm really not at liberty to comment, unfortunately,'' Nelson told Hansen. "But I will say that it's an unfortunate situation and we wish him nothing but the best.''
The Mavs hired Rosas away from the Houston Rockets on July 22. The two parties parted ways earlier Tuesday.
