Dallas Mavericks steps to get back on track: 1. Hire president of basketball operations
This is step one and the first job the Mavs need to tackle this offseason. Owner Mark Cuban wisely recruited Dirk Nowitzki and other trusted advisors to help in the search for a lead decision-maker.
The Mavericks need someone that can assemble a championship roster. That starts with putting the right pieces around Luka Doncic to complement him. The 22-year-old superstar cannot win by himself. He needs more help. Dallas has failed in two straight offseason to find those pieces.
Fans have to look at the positive. A change at the top could be a plus if the Mavs find someone that can build a championship roster around Doncic.
Cuban needs to have things in order before making the hire. He is not going to attract a desirable candidate if that person does not believe they will have autonomy in the job. Bob Voulgaris must be gone. Cuban needs to hire someone that he trusts to make decisions. The owner should be listening to the man in charge of basketball operations first and foremost.
After the Dallas Mavericks have selected a president of basketball operations, they need to empower him.
