The Dallas Mavericks are in advanced talks to hire Dennis Lindsey as a special assistant to Nico Harrison. The Mavericks considered hiring Lindsey in the summer of 2021 to replace Donnie Nelson before hiring Harrison.

The Mavericks have been looking for an experienced sounding-board voice since last offseason.

Harrison’s most recent two hires came from the Brooklyn Nets: Senior director of pro personnel Matt Riccardi and senior director of salary cap and strategy Andrew Baker.
