Dallas Mavericks increase emphasis on analytics with new GM
The Dallas Mavericks have hired analytically-focused Gersson Rosas as their newest general manager. Rosas previously served as Houston's executive vice president of basketball operations under analytics guru Daryl Morey.
Morey has now lost two of his top assistants, as Sam Hinkie was named the GM of the Philadelphia 76ers.
One of the league's most advanced teams in terms of analytics, the Dallas Mavericks and Mark Cuban continue to foster an analytical approach. Cuban is a frequent speaker at the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference.
More updates coming soon.
