The Dallas Mavericks are going through a massive transition. They parted ways with their lead executive Donnie Nelson and head coach Rick Carlisle after a second straight first-round playoff exit. The Mavs hired Nico Harrison to be their general manager and Jason Kidd as the new head coach. The signings were made official on June 28.

It calls into question the future of Jamahl Mosley. He joined the Mavericks in 2014 and worked his way up to being Rick Carlisle’s top assistant. The 42-year-old has a close relationship with Luka Doncic and has been a candidate for several head coaching openings in recent years. Mosely did not seem to get much play for the Dallas job, including Carlisle endorsing Kidd before the hire. It appears Mosley could move on as the Wizards and Magic have requested interviews for their vacant head coach roles, according to Marc Stein.

Mosley has another important gig this offseason. Let us take a look at the latest and what it could mean for his future.

Dallas Mavericks assistant Jamahl Mosley to work with USA Select Team this summer

Marc Stein broke the news of the USA Basketball’s Select Team coaches on Tuesday afternoon. See his tweet below.

Team USA always brings in the Senior team and the Select Team to Las Vegas. The Senior team will be heading to Tokyo for the Olympics later this summer. The Select Team is younger players that are being groomed for positions on the top squad. Dallas Mavericks guard Jalen Brunson participated on the Select Team in 2019.

It is a fantastic opportunity for coach Mosley to work with some of the best young players in the NBA. It could also prove massive when he becomes a head coach. Having a previous relationship with a player makes it easier to link up down the line. Mosley is beloved by players and has an outstanding reputation.

It will be interesting to see where Jamahl Mosley ends up next season. The current Dallas Mavericks assistant will be coaching the USA Select Team this summer. Fans will have to stay tuned to find out where he ends up after that.
