    Default Mavs want Jeff Vangundy as an assistant.

    The Mavericks plan to pursue ESPN analyst Jeff Van Gundy for an assistant coaching position on Jason Kidds staff, according to a report from Marc Stein.
    Im also told that [the Mavericks] plan to gauge Jeff Van Gundys interest in a potential return to the bench as an aide to Kidd after 15-plus years in broadcasting, Stein wrote.

    Hes making like a million to barely do nba games now. Why go be an assistant? Unless hes just desperate to coach again of course. But Im sure he could get a college job tomorrow if he wanted it.

    Random af.

    Dont see any reason Van Gundy would give up lead broadcasting duties for am assistant’s job.

    And coaching/assistant coaching is not the Mavs’ problem. They need more talent on the roster.

    Thing with Luka is, you have a higher ceiling and a lower floor. Like, if you give every guy their optimal team, Luka can make a team better than Tatum or Embiid, Giannis etc. But because of his limitation you also have a narrower pool of players who fit around him than those guys etc.

    If you get all the right guys Doncic has the savvy, playmaking and clutch gene to make a team unstoppable. But his super slow, ball dominant pace shrinks the pool of guys who fit with him.

    I dont see how adding JVG as a coach addresses that.

    Offer it to Mark Jackson instead & keep JVG in the booth.

    Dallas really seems like they are in disarray.

    It doesn't. Luka will need a roster full of 3 and D guys and a big or two.

    Cuban seems like a guy who hasn't updated himself in like 10 years. Kidd, Van Gundy etc.

    Luka can win 3+ titles if he gets a team of 3&D guys, and a Brook Lopez stretch rim protector. But the odds of getting all that and Denver losing enough of their rotation players to let the Luka squad past . And Luka staying healthy in his later 20s at his current weight I think he wont win chips until Jokic gets 2-3 of his own.

    All that said, I absolutely love Jeff Van Gundy, and adding him to any endeavor automatically improves the chances of whatever the goal of that endeavor is.

    JVG isn't coming, especially not as an assistant coach. Mavs are getting desperately thinking they can add stars to their roster & coaching bench to brighten their future, but it doesn't work that way.

    Wrong. Lukas game is not conducive of winning unless you have 2 other top 5 PER players next to you
